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 9 comments by Kark-Jocke on Jun 15th, 2014


~ The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition ~

~ Some information about the game ~

During the prologue, Geralt is interrogated in a prison in the kingdom of Temeria by Vernon Roche, the commander of a group of Temerian special forces known as the Blue Stripes, regarding the assassination of the king of Temeria, King Foltest.


Geralt recounts the events leading up to Foltest's death, during which he acted as Foltest's bodyguard. During an uprising against Foltest by noble families of Temeria, Foltest personally leads the battle in order to recover his illegitimate children, Anais and Boussy, who are being held by the rebels. Once Foltest finds his children, he is killed by an assassin disguised as a blind monk, who escapes before Geralt can react.


Geralt is then found by Temerian forces and mistaken for Foltest's killer. After hearing Geralt's confessions, Roche decides that Geralt is innocent and aids him in escaping the prison. The two, along with sorceress Triss Merigold, Geralt's companion and Foltest's royal advisor, then travel to a trading post named Flotsam, in search of the kingslayer.


Upon arrival to Flotsam, Geralt, Roche, and Triss are ambushed by Iorveth, with Triss's magic saving them from his archers. Geralt discovers the assassin is a witcher in league with a group of Elven rebels known as the Scoia'tael.


The assassin is also revealed to have killed another king: Demavend, the king of neighboring kingdom Aedirn. Upon arrival, Geralt walks upon Zoltan and Dandelion about to be hanged in the city square. After a scrap with the guards, the commandant of Flotsam, Loredo, sets them free under certain conditions, and asks Geralt to meet him in his mansion.

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´! :)
