The Witcher 2 DLC Will Be Free, Combat Trailer

A new trailer on G4tv.com shows how combat mechanics will work in The Witcher 2: Assassins Of Kings, CD Projekt RED's imminent RPG sequel. The clip demonstrates how one would kill a Witcher. The Witcher Website is counting down the seconds (literally) to the game's release next week, and ActionTrip (thanks joao) has word that the preorders of the game have gone well past the 100,000 mark. There's also a story on Gamasutra quoting Trevor Longino of Good Old Games saying their recent elimination of geo-IP checks was not specifically to allow Australians to avoid the censored version of the game planned for their territory. Finally, a Q&A on the Gamestop Facebook page (thanks Neoseeker via reddit) has word that while the game may have paid expansions, all the DLC offered as preorder incentives will be eventually released for free:

Let me announce that all our DLCs will be FREE. All of them. If anything will be for purchase, those will be expansion packs. First DLC (side-quest called "Troll Trouble") airs together with the game release.

If you've pre-ordered Witcher 2 from anywhere other than GOG, you need to cancel it and order from GOG. If the Witcher 2 sells well on GOG, it may help publishers see the light and be more lax on DRM in the future. It may also help GOG get more high-profile games, DRM-free. And of course, buying from GOG ensures that the developers see the most reward for their work.

The only thing that sucks is I wanted the Art Book (actually printed). No way to get it without ordering Collector's Edition :/
