Default The Witcher 2 - Preview, Videos

April 27th, 2011, 00:47
Strategy Informer has a preview of The Witcher 2:
Hands down, if The Witcher 2 wins no other award this year it certainly stands out as being the best looking RPG available. Characters are incredibly detailed, forests are lush and overgrown, rain punishes the ground, and that castle siege at the start had me just standing admiring it for a few minutes. Seeing the huge trebuchets properly in motion, launching rocks that smash into the castleís walls from a good distance, is utterly awe-inspiring. And thatís only after ten minutes of game time!
Over at Rock, Paper, Shotgun, there's a five minute video that shows off some early sections from the preview code that press sites are playing with.
The official site has also added a combat overview and environments slideshow.
More information.

I've stopped looking at any of these things now I've preordered but I'm ecstatic it's all so positive…

I'm waiting for TW1 to be released on GOG, before I start.

In the pre-release buggy state. However they do say if the bugs are quashed then it's the new king.

And DA2 doesn't have them? It ran like ass on even the highest end Nvidia cards when it shipped and there were some pretty large bugs like the Sebastian/Isabella one.
