One of our favourite things about CDP was the fact that they didn’t just give up on The Witcher and move on, they redid the voice acting and the animation, as well as fixing a whole buinch of bugs with their Enhanced Edition. They’re doing something similar with The Witcher 2, although this time the changes are more substantial, with new features and content. The big features are listed below, but include a load of entirely new locations and characters, extended the game significantly. GoG reports that anyone who purchases the game before the release of the Enhanced Edition (17th April) will get the upgrade for free.
New major adventures set in new locations. These consist of an underground system of chambers beneath Loc Muine and a temperate coniferous forest in the Loc Muine mountains, and a secret cave passage. These new adventures will add several hours of story-based gameplay to the game.
New major characters to the Witcher story. One of them is Brigida Papebrock Dame. This noble woman comes from the Temerian family Papebrock and is a 30 year old lady-in-waiting of the Temerian court. The other characters are secret–for now!
All new animations and cut scenes, including a new, three and a half minute pre-rendered cinematic depicting the assassination of King Demavend of Aedirn. BAFTA Award winner and Academy Award nominee Tomasz Baginski brings this key historical event to life, setting the stage for the story told in The Witcher 2.
Intriguing! And just in time for another playthrough, I think.
