Default The Witcher - Enhanced Edition PR

August 7th, 2008, 00:25
CD Projekt's Tom Ohle has sent out a Product Fact Sheet PR for The Witcher Enhanced Edition. I can't see anything new but just in case, here we go:

Games for Windows
RELEASE DATE: September 2008
PUBLISHER: Atari, Inc.
GENRE: Role-Playing Game
ESRB RATING: RP (Rating Pending)

Game Description:

The Witcher: Enhanced Edition is the ultimate version of the ultimate role-playing game. The Witcher, which was released in October 2007, has won more than 90 awards and has sold more than 800,000 copies worldwide, and The Witcher: Enhanced Edition brings the game even closer to perfection with a number of technical and visual improvements jammed into the value-packed retail box. The enhancements introduced in this version include more than 5000 lines of re-written and re-recorded dialogue, more than 200 new dialogue animations, a new character differentiation system for NPCs, an enhanced inventory with improved alchemy, reduced loading times, improved combat responsiveness and much more.

In addition to the in-game updates, The Witcher: Enhanced Edition will feature premium packaging loaded with value, including the multilingual game disc allowing you to play with any combination of voice-over and subtitles, two new adventures with full voice-over, the D’jinni Adventure Editor, the Official Soundtrack CD, a Music Inspired by The Witcher CD, an official game guide, The Witcher short story by Andrzej Sapkowski, a Making-of DVD with behind-the-scenes video footage, and a map of The Witcher’s world.

The Witcher represents the pinnacle of storytelling in role-playing games, shattering the line between good and evil with a world where moral ambiguity reigns. In a beautiful, rich game universe, the player takes on the role of renowned monster slayer, Geralt of Rivia, in an epic, action-packed narrative in which his decisions have a major impact on how the story plays out. The Witcher emphasizes story and character development in a vibrant world, while incorporating tactically-deep real-time combat like no game before it.

Tom, if you're reading this, can you say if there will be different levels of censoring between the US and the EU versions of the EE? And don't pretend you don't know what I mean…

There's two things you can mean, actually:

1. Naughty bits!

2. Highly mature plot points.

I have to say that it almost certainly will, assuming this game is going to be sold in stores. If they didn't, the game gets slapped with an AO rating and almost no store will sell it, which would destroy most of your sales. In fact, since you can upgrade from the original Witcher to this, upping the rating could bring on lawsuits. It might be possible for them to restore more of the plot, though, or maybe alter them a bit instead of ripping them out.

I expect you'll still need to go find a 3rd party patch to turn your game into the Polish version with English subtitles if you want to see the whole story, though. (If that patch is still possible in the new version.)
