The second instalment in the RPG saga about the Witcher, Geralt of Rivia, features a thoroughly engrossing, mature storyline defining new standards for thought-provoking, non-linear game narration. In addition to an epic story, the game features an original, brutal combat system that uniquely combines tactical elements with dynamic action.

A new, modern game engine, responsible both for beautiful visuals and sophisticated game mechanics puts players in the most lively and believable world ever created in an RPG game. A captivating story, dynamic combat system, beautiful graphics, and everything else that made the original Witcher such a great game are now executed in a much more advanced and sophisticated way.

About The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings with 27 comments by feillyne on May 13th, 2013

The moment everyone has been waiting for is finally here! CD Projekt Red is proud to announce the launch of REDkit, the ultimate set of tools for crafting non-linear role-playing adventures! The editor has just entered its open beta phase, allowing everyone who is waiting for The Witcher 3 to go back to the previous installment of the series and create new, amazing content or just play around with other modders’ creations.

The editor gives modders of all skill levels the tools, they need to tell non-linear tales full of branching plots, believable characters and far-reaching consequences for player actions. Without learning to program or wrangling with opaque editors, game creators can use the top-quality art and assets from The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings or import their own, as well as intuitive tools for environment creation, to craft their own unique role-playing adventures.

“For CD Projekt RED, RPGs are all about telling amazing stories,” said Adam Badowski, head of CD Projekt RED. “We want to give players the power to tell the same kind of non-linear, branching stories that made The Witcher games so popular. Our fans have helped us for years to make our games the best they can be, and REDkit is part of embracing our community as a partner in game development.”

Someones gotta make some armor/weapon mods for ModDB, a lord of the rings themed high/noldor elven set would fit so well with Geralt's fighting style!

Make sure you have ubersampling off. Sure it looks nicer but not worth the MASSIVE frame drop. I get anywhere from 20-40fps with it on, and 40-70fps off with a 680.

Well... I've bought the premium thing a year or so ago. I waited for any major patch just like with TW1. I finally decided to install the game, get the 10 gig patch. Turns out that even the patching process has bugs. I cancelled the patch but am unable to run vanilla. Uninstall.

Guess I'll wait for a the next major patch before trying again. CDProject, you guys really suck at QA.

For sure, the best Story driven RPG, since a long time & until today. The Graphic Engine is powerful & creates a well good atmosphere! Never have seen such an intense lightworks + that epic farsight Panorama that i have admired... Unfortunetaly its a bit underrated in the whole press-critic , but in my opinion
i look up to next Project of CDV - keep on going with your great work´! :)
