Missed the Witcher 2 news?

If you missed CD Projekt Red's Press conference just the other day, then you may be interested in having a bit of a read.

Now officially named The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition, it was announced that there would be two versions hitting stores on its release, which includes the Dark Edition. Many of the new features were presented that have been added to the enhanced edition including an extension to the PC original with the addition of new quests and locations.

A new CGI game intro was also presented; directed by BAFTA winner and Oscar nominee Tomasz Baginski, this was also followed by the announcement that the Xbox 360 version will include a number of new never-seen-before cinematics.

“PC users who already own the game will be happy to learn that they will be able to download all the added content free of charge. At the same time, the Xbox 360 version will incorporate all DLCs and upgrades made available thus far for the game’s original platform (including the ‘Arena’ arcade mode and Tutorial that were part of the latest and richest PC version)” added Badowski.

They have also enhanced the user interface which sees a revamped control system for both the UI, targeting, and camera which will give players full control during the game's dynamic and tactically rich combat.

The Witcher 2 will be available on Xbox 360 April 17th in both the standard and dark edition, hopefully a UK release may be on the cards for the fantastic Dark edition that is so far only available for pre-order in the USA, France, Germany and Sweden.
