Default The Witcher 2 - Preview @ God is a Geek

October 20th, 2010, 22:35
A site called God is a Geek has a Eurogamer Expo preview of The Witcher 2:
The second part of the demonstration featured a cursed battlefield with hundreds of ghostly soldiers taking part in a battle. Gop points out that hundreds of character models on-screen at one time is only possible with The Witcher 2′s all new tailor made engine. The soldiers were merely images from the past and did not attack Geralt, but a demonic presence in the form of an impressive looking boss soon made his presence aware. The boss could be defeated in this early build, but we can honestly say we saw enough to know that The Witcher 2 is sure to excite fans of the original as well as gaining new ones in the process.
More information.

I don't quite understand this sentence. especially the part with the "but" stuff.

It almost sounds to me as if they wanted to make this "boss" a heavy fight ?

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)

Was that hundreds? Maybe tens of soldiers + lots of blades of grass (already done in NWN 1)?

I think it's safe to say those visuals are significantly better then NWN 1.
