The lights are on
The wait is almost over. The enhanced edition of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings hits retail shelves and digital downloads tomorrow for Xbox 360 and PC. Game Informer's Jeff Cork and Jason Oestreicher joined me for a quick look at the game. In this 30-minute video we see king-on-king action, a bald person fight club, a failed hay diving attempt, and we knock as many archers off of high ledges as we can.
I played the PC version until my PC died (an event many people have come to know as "the worst day of my life"). I'm now five hours into the new Xbox 360 version and find it to be every bit as impressive as the original game. Watch the video and let us know what you think of the game in the comments section below.
Email the author Andrew Reiner, or follow on Twitter, Facebook, and Game Informer.
This reminds me of the sweet lord of the rings game that came out way back.
You know what would really piss me off? If ignorant Xbots started calling this an Xbox exclusive.(not calling the ENTIRE community ignorant, just most of the eleven year olds that will be buying this when no way in hell should they!)
The combat reminds me of Dark Souls, which is great.
So glad I pre-ordered this.
guhh i cant stop watching. gamestop opens in 40 minutes and im ruining the game for myself lol
This game looks great. Can't wait to play it! Thanks GI!
Looks ok, I may check it out eventually.
woahhh they can fly haha
Great video as usual, but The Witcher 2 just looks lame to me. The graphics are nice, but the gameplay looks really boring.
They never learn.
This game is incredible, I own it on PC and it is one of my all time favorite games ever. That is a bold statement, but it really holds the banner for good RPG development. If you go with PC play the first one, as it is good in its own right and the save files transfer.
Great look at the Witcher 2!! I really want to pick this up, but I have an RPG backlog I would like to catch up on first. I hope to play this by May though. Great episode GI Crew!
Definetly want this game now. Maybe its because im in a Game Of Thrones mood but it looks pretty awesome.
This game looks awesome. I'm planning on picking it up as soon as I get around to beating the first game on PC. Also I could listen to Reiner say "Get out of there!" all day.
I was in till it was decided to start a new game...
