Ten minutes of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings

Ten minutes of The Witcher 2 beta footage have spilled their way onto the Internet, and it has to be said that the game's looking very nice. Although a lot of the footage is Geralt walking slowly around to show off the scenery, it's damn fine scenery.

The first Witcher was almost legendary for its glitchiness, so it's heartening to see that even in beta, Assassins of Kings looks more polished than its predecessor. Combat looks like it'll be quicker and more action-packed as well, which is no bad thing. 

I'm pretty excited to play this one. I liked the first, but stopped playing due to its bad pacing and tendency to be broken. This looks set to improve on everything, so I'm looking forward to a great game.
