The Witcher 2 Enhanced Edition in April

GOG.com announces plans for The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition, following in the footsteps of the acclaimed Enhanced Edition of the first installment in their action/RPG series. They say the Enhanced Edition is due on April 17th. that anyone who buys The Witcher 2 between now and then gets the upgrade for free, and as further incentive, that the game is currently on sale for 15% off. Here's word on the new edition:

New major adventures set in new locations. These consist of an underground system of chambers beneath Loc Muine and a temperate coniferous forest in the Loc Muine mountains, and a secret cave passage. These new adventures will add several hours of story-based gameplay to the game.

New major characters to the Witcher story. One of them is Brigida Papebrock Dame. This noble woman comes from the Temerian family Papebrock and is a 30 year old lady-in-waiting of the Temerian court. The other characters are secret--for now!

All new animations and cut scenes, including a new, three and a half minute pre-rendered cinematic depicting the assassination of King Demavend of Aedirn. BAFTA Award winner and Academy Award nominee Tomasz Baginski brings this key historical event to life, setting the stage for the story told in The Witcher 2.

It was a lot shorter than I expected to be honest but it was still a great game easily worth the money. I guess I was expecting something the length of first game but TW1 did have a ton of silly repetition that padded it out so maybe they're equivalent after all. The enhanced edition will be welcome though, the game does have some rough edges that could use polishing.

Super cool trailrt. Still waiting for a good sale on it.

Really? I think it's dropped as low as $15 within the last couple of months. If you think $15 is too much for the best RPG of 2011, I'm not sure what to say.

Indeed. this is a no-brainer buy for anyone who likes RPGs and well done games in general.

Well theres no demo - Gaikai doesnt work for me - and I just never got into the original even though I tried to 2 or 3 times so unless this is considerably different than I really don't want to pay more than $10 for it.

Highly recommend the books. Still pretty pissed about the 5 times and multiple years delayed 3rd book translation though.

Yea, I have read reviews of his other books in Polish, and wish they would be translated quicker.

Bow-chicka-bowwow!

I mean, come on, why else is she being added?

That said, I really need to get my ass around to buying this.

Same here. I never did finish the firt one. I think I am close though. Probably just play it again. I also am finishing up the Blood of Elves book. I really enjoyed the first book.

Yup, their continuous excellent support makes me want to keep waiting to replay it so I can see all the new stuff in one go (first Dark mode, now this).
