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.

This project was inspired by the Full Combat Rebalance 2 (FCR2) mod by Flash of CD Projekt RED. Formerly based upon FCR2 during the initial portion of development, it has since branched off and come into its own with a slew of changes. The highlights revolve around combat. These include improved parrying, free-form targeting, focused attack, and combat-based experience points to name a few. Most of the new abilities are acquired through character ability development. The player level cap has been extended to 96. So it is possible to completely fill the entire skill tree. Leveling will also slow down towards the higher levels due to progressive XP requirements. While a lot of the changes were allegedly spurred by personal preference, game balance was still kept in mind.

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.

turn things like AA and urbansampling off. also i like games that barely run when they come out but still look FANTASTIC after several years.

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´! :)
