You’ll need to angle your head about 45 degrees to the side to get a proper view of the leaked footage below, but it’s worth getting a kink in your neck to see some of Geralt’s new adventures. The video was taken at CD Projekt’s latest and greatest – The Witcher 2.
Long story short, Geralt of Rivia walks through a town, speaks Polish, and then hacks up a creature that is clearly a variant of the Giant With Big Hands On A Ledge class of boss monster.
Interestingly, it was CD Projekt itself that pointed Eurogamer (and now you) to the video, with the intent of turning the damage into something positive and using it to gain some feedback from the fans.
As a fan, I indeed relish the opportunity to give some feedback, and I say it’s looking good. The lighting looks quite nice compared to the original game, and from what little we saw of it, it seems to retain its gritty fantasy charm. I also hear that it’s going multiplatform, which is great news for console gamers longing for the good ol’ days of ’90s style RPGs. I’d also like to formally log a request to include Polish language options (with English subtitles) for all versions of the game. After I got the Enhanced Edition patch, it just felt so right.
What about you other fans? What’s your feedback?
