Reviews

Gorgeous, ambitious, and not afraid to kill you dead, The Witcher 2 can be a harsh mistress. This dark, unique world is so well realized and populated with interesting characters that it's easy to lose yourself in its environs.

Game Informer

The Witcher 2 is alternately offensive and endearing, grimy and gorgeous, and never ceases to surprise. It's one of the great titles of 2011, and one of the best role-playing games in years.

IGN

With its immersive world setting, nuanced choices that aren't clear cut good or evil, and large number of quests to eat up all your free time (and more!), Witcher 2 has become the game to beat in the RPG market.

Description

assassin
Enjoy a captivating story, dynamic combat system and beautiful graphics in the second installment in the RPG saga about the Witcher, Geralt of Rivia.

The player is Geralt of Rivia, a professional monster slayer, a witcher. Entangled in the political turmoil that engulfed Temeria, Geralt helped quell the rebellion of the Order of the Flaming Rose. Soon after, he saved King Foltest’s life when the monarch was attacked by a witcher-like assassin. He continues to protect the king, serving as his bodyguard as Foltest strives to bring peace to his kingdom. The Order’s last bastions have yielded to the royal army, yet one more task remains - the Baroness La Valette announced her secession from the realm, and her fortress must be taken. A month after the attempted assassination, Foltest’s armies stand at the gates of La Valette Castle, preparing for a final assault. Still at Foltest’s side, Geralt is among them, unable to begin his personal quest to discover the mysterious assassin’s origin and identity…

Thanks to the new, ultra-modern REDengine, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings features both beautiful graphics and sophisticated in-game mechanics, drawing players into the most lively and believable world ever created in a video game.
