“CD Projket RED, the developers of The Witcher 2 Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition for Xbox 360 and PC, have published a new video about their protagonist — Geralt of Rivia. The movie called “52 and a half” is made using the game’s REDengine, the tool which makes the game one of the best looking titles on this generation’s hardware. THE MOVIE DOES NOT CONTAIN IN GAME FOOTAGE and is a stand-alone story set in The Witcher’s universe.”
The Witcher 2 Hero:
You are a witcher, a mutant. The sooner you accept this, the better. People will seek you out for your skills, but you must know to disappear when your presence is no longer desired. You are unique, different. This puts you in the same precarious position as non-humans who find themselves impaled or hanging from nearby trees. That they exist and are different triggers resentment, animosity and hatred among common folk, who will use any pretext to show them their proper place. How is it then that witchers, while equally non-human and different, do not share the fate of these poor devils? The answer is twofold.
First, relatively few of you walk this earth. Therefore, one is far more likely to encounter an elf than a monster-slayer such as yourself. And second, you possess a couple of rather forceful deterrents, a solid sword and a simple set of life rules.
Your blades are your lifeline. It’s therefore unsurprising that your ability to wield them is renowned, or that very few are keen or even willing to risk their lives by engaging you in combat. Still, your prowess has not led to arrogance. Neither do you revert to force when it isn’t necessary. As long as even a small possibility remains of resolving a conflict by other means, you sheathe your sword rather than tempt fate. However, you are unrelenting and without remorse when you must fight. You’re no saint, and not out to save the world. Ultimately, you simply want to survive while remaining true to your profession.
The Witcher 2: Assassins Of Kings Enhanced Edition is scheduled for April 17th 2012 on Xbox 360 only.
