Scratching That Witch: New Witcher 2 Details

By Kieron Gillen on May 24th, 2010.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU DON'T WANT TO SEX ME?

VG247 are reporting new details and grabs emerging from Namco’s Pre-E3 press event in Spain. Well, “details” is a bit much – it’s all very much generalities. That said, things like “no fed ex missions” is going to be an interesting one to watch, if only to see if they actually do it (In the same way MMO devs claim “No Kill 10 Boar quests” before inevitably having Kill 10 Boar quests.) A quote on sex and eroticism screams out, promising it’ll be dealt with in “a much more realistic, involving and mature way, thanks to which sexual relationships are presented more credibly than in TW1.” You know, a meaner commentator than I would take that as a Mea Culpa. Still: I’m increasingly excited about this. And it’s still due for early 2011, apparently. Yays.

A Message From CD Project Red: Witcher 2

By Kieron Gillen on March 24th, 2010.

After yesterday’s video, UberJumper on the SA forums noticed it includes on a one-frame message to the devoted (i.e. Those heroically mental enough to advance it frame by frame). Click through the image above to see the whole thing. Paraphrase: we sold 1.5 million! Awesome! Unlike people who say PC RPG is dead. Witcher was awesome, but we’ve learned a load since then. Next one will be better, and built with our own tech rather than Bioware’s Aurora engine to allow non-linear plots and living world. Key quote: “A game created by a team of independent thinkers, immune to corporate priorties, who don’t care what’s trendy at a given moment”.

The Magic Number… Witcher Mega-Hint

By Alec Meer on March 23rd, 2010.


EDIT: Now with trailer, below.

There’s a big number ’2′ on the front page of TheWitcher.com. I think it might mean something. But what? I’m pretty sure it’s related to the number of eggs the CEO of CD Projekt RED likes in his ham and mushroom omlettes, but then I’ve been know to be wrong before. I mean, some people think could be something to do with there being a sequel to quietly huge RPG The Witcher, but c’mon, who makes sequels to videogames these days?

The site forbids any interaction at the moment, but I suspect it’ll relax that very, very soon. (Now, in fact.)

The Witcher: No Sequel Yet, But More Stuff

By Alec Meer on June 3rd, 2009.

So you hold the button down, right?

And the award for Most Prosaic-Ever RPS Headline goes to…

All’s been a bit quiet around well-received, dodgily-translated blood’n'boobs’n'moral deliberation RPG The Witcher for a while, with its fans hoping E3 might offer news of a follow-up. No such luck, unfortunately, but there is more Witcher inbound – the 1.5 patch, which promises two rather exciting changes. Also, CD Projekt RED’s cavalier mention of a “Director’s Cut” will doubtless fuel a speculatory fire.
