The Witcher: Enhanced Edition brings the best to perfection in 2008. Released in October 2007, The Witcher has won critical acclaim with more than 90 awards and has sold more than 800,000 copies worldwide. The Witcher: Enhanced Edition is the definitive edition thanks to feature and content enhancements but also major technical improvements, all delivered in a premium high quality retail box.
A major portion of the English and German dialogue has been retranslated and rerecorded to match the original language version of the title with more than 5000 lines of re-written and re-recorded dialogue. The character gesturing system has been reworked and more than 200 new dialogue animations have been added to add more believability to the story telling. With new character differentiation system for NPCs, enhanced inventory with improved alchemy, reduced loading times, and 10 fully localized languages, alongside premium packaging loaded with high value content, The Witcher: Enhanced Edition is set to thrill even more RPG fans in 2008.

Critically acclaimed PC role-player The Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings has nailed down a release date for its Xbox 360 incarnation. Just don't call it a port, as developer CD Projekt insists that the 360 is getting "the most polished and definitive version of the game."
Rather than simply translating the game to the console format, the Polish studio has added a wealth of new material to an already fantastic game. Xbox 360 gamers can look forward to a new CGI intro sequence, over half an hour of new cinematics, four more hours of gameplay, two new adventures, new characters, new locations, an improved camera and target-lock system plus a sprinkling of interface and control improvements.
Even the packaging will be generous. The game will come on two discs, and the standard edition is accompanied by a quest handbook, soundtrack and map. Those wanting to pay a little extra can pick up the Dark Edition, which adds a presentation box, art book, stickers, a DVD documentary about the making of the game and a reproduction wolf's head medallion that you can wear with your casually half-opened tunic the next time you head to a tavern to impress some wenches.
April 17th is the date to mark in your diary, perhaps writing it in blood before adding a wax seal for maximum effect.
CD Projekt Red has confirmed that its acclaimed role-playing game The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings: Enhanced Edition will arrive on Xbox 360 in April 2012.
The game is set to hit Microsoft's console in two different versions and will include a range of content that was not included in the original PC release last year.
Gamers can expect to see new cinematic sequences, additional quests and locations, as well as several major new characters who bring new layers of complexity to the deep fantasy storyline.
It will also include console-optimised controls and all downloadable content released for the PC version, while its technical conversion ensures that it retains the same high quality of visuals.
The game will be released in a standard package and a Dark Edition that includes a whole range of bonus goodies, such as a soundtrack, art book, map, stickers, medallion and much more.
Meanwhile, fans of the original PC edition will also be able to download all of the Xbox 360's new content free of charge.
CDProjekt's acclaimed RPG saga, The Witcher, will get a third entry next year, the developer/publisher has confirmed. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be available for PC and "all high end platforms".
The announcement brings with it a whole host of exciting details. For one, the game will take place in a completely open world, similar to Skyrim. This means there will be no levels, chapters or similar barriers to your progress - demon-hunting warrior Geralt will be free to roam at will, undertaking whatever jobs take his fancy.
Hunting the supernatural creatures that roam the world won't be as simple as finding them and battering them with sharp pointy metal things though. You'll need to investigate them and learn their habits and weaknesses by reading books and talking to locals if you want to be a truly efficient slayer. Some monsters may be stronger at certain times of day, or they may be vulnerable to specific attacks in specific places. You won't know unless you do some digging. Combat, magic and the inventory system will all receive an overhaul as well, with a new emphasis on crafting to beef up Geralt's armour and weaponry with resources found on your quests.
The game follows on from the hugely popular Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings which wowed PC and Xbox 360 players. The Xbox version was notable for adding huge chunks of additional gameplay, and lots more cinematics, to the already generous PC game.
Perhaps most exciting of all is that promise that the sequel will be coming to "high end platforms" rather than the expected consoles. What else is that but confirmation that you'll be playing it on the new Xbox or PlayStation?
CD Projekt's Witcher games have always thrown themselves into more adult storylines than their more traditional RPG peers, tackling subjects such as racism and persecution, and featuring a bloody, grimy, earthy game world where sex and violence are simply a fact of life.
For the upcoming third game, which will feature a persistent open world not unlike Skyrim, the Polish developer is aiming to tell an even more adult story.
"Geralt has regained his memory, and he's also more mature now," lead quest designer Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz has told VG247. "He knows what he wants from life, and he's determined to get it. In my opinion, plot of The Witcher 3 is the most mature plot in The Witcher trilogy."
"Witcher 3 is extremely ambitious in terms of the number of characters and plots that we're introducing," added Tomaszkiewicz, "but also in terms of how we want to present them. We want to tell a truly immersive and emotional story in an epic environment. The overarching plot will have a huge impact on the state of world as a whole, but we're not aiming at making Geralt savior of universe - this would be out of his character. As always, Geralt will get dragged into big events that he would otherwise stay out of, and influence them in his own way."
The Witcher 3 will apparently feature multiple endings, as well as over 30 different ways to impact and shape the game world through your actions by the time the credits roll.
The Witcher 3 is confirmed for PC and PlayStation 4 in 2014. Other "next generation" formats are promised.
