The Witcher 2 Preloads & DRM, New Publishers [Updated] has a recap of their awesome presentation on CDP Days. Included is the announcement of the release of Alone in the Dark on, which includes AITD 1, 2, and 3. They also tease the future addition to their DRM-free marketplace of games from new publishers, saying one of either Microsoft, Electronic Arts, LucasArts, Take2, or Square Enix as already signed on, and two more from the list are "almost on board," though they are playing it close to the vest with details. They also say those with preorders of The Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings will be able to pre-download about 90% of the game starting May 10, so they will be set for the game's release on May 17. They also announce they will offer The Witcher: Enhanced Edition Director’s Cut at a 50% discount between May 10 and May 24. Finally, there are some further details about The Witcher 2 on Shacknews (thanks nin), where they note the game will have 16 different endings, and while the version of the game sold on will be DRM-free, versions sold elsewhere will use SecuROM, in spite of CD Projekt's stated distaste for DRM. Update: Big Download has further details on the DRM, saying the SecuROM used by the game will use an internet check each time the game is launched, but will not require an ongoing connection after that. Player will be able to install the game an unlimited number of times on an unlimited number of PCs, and it can be played on up to five different machines at one time.
