The trailer consists of the game’s new intro, which uses spectacular visuals to depict an important event in the Witcher universe – the assassination of King Demavend during a cruise along the Pontar River. The intro was created by forty artists from Platige Image, including BAFTA winner and Academy Award nominee Tomasz Bagiński.
The intro is one of many new features being added to the Enhanced Edition of the award-winning game The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. The Xbox version of the game will hit store shelves on 17 April 2012. That same day, all PC players will be able to upgrade their game copies to the PC Enhanced Edition through the game's launcher, absolutely free of charge. The PC version of the game with the additional content will be also available in retail.
“In creating the Xbox 360 version of the game, we’ve gone beyond simply porting it to the new platform. Instead, we’ve created a full adaptation of The Witcher 2 for the console. We’ve changed the game's controls and its menus to reflect the differences between the platforms, and we've made extensive modifications to the RED engine to make sure that the graphics are jaw-dropping for Xbox 360 players. We're proud of the fact that this will be one of the best-looking games ever to come to the Xbox 360, while also being one of the most complex RPGs ever brought to console gamers. Current PC gamers should be pleased to know that they will receive all new content free of charge, including 4 more hours of gameplay” says Adam Badowski, head of the CD Projekt RED studio.
