BURBANK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and CD Projekt RED announced today that the award-winning, epic fantasy role-playing game, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition, is now available on consoles for the first time. The game launched in North America for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PC with a quest handbook, a game world map and a soundtrack CD, all for $59.99.
Defining new standards for realistic, non-linear game narration, The Witcher 2 delivers a mature, thought-provoking story to produce a matchless RPG experience. The deep story of Geralt of Rivia draws players into a lively game world filled with politics and intrigue. All player decisions have consequences, whether good or bad, and each has an obvious impact on future events in the world. In addition to the epic story, the game features a complex combat system that uniquely combines dynamic action with tactical depth.
“This is our first console game, and I’m very excited to bring The Witcher 2 to Xbox 360; it’s one of the most mature and best-looking games on this platform,” said Adam Badowski, head of CD Projekt RED studio. “But we haven’t forgotten about our current PC players – owners of the game on PC can download the Enhanced Edition update from our webpage for free. I want to invite all new Witcher fans to thewitcher.com – we’ve proven several times that fan feedback is important, so tell us what you think of our game.”
The Enhanced Edition adds approximately four hours of additional quests to the critically-acclaimed RPG and makes the intense story even more intriguing with 35 minutes of new cut-scenes and cinematics. The Xbox 360 edition offers mechanical enhancements including an intelligent camera system and a new target locking system. Both the Xbox 360 and Windows PC versions feature all the previously released DLC and upgrades, including the arcade arena mode and a separate tutorial system.
Thanks to the new REDengine, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition features both beautiful graphics and sophisticated in-game mechanics. The Witcher 2 sets new boundaries in terms of technical beauty and artistic design.
The Enhanced Edition update for current Windows PC version owners is available, free of charge, at www.thewitcher.com. The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition is rated M for Mature by the ESRB.
