The Witcher 2 - Spring Conference Details
As indicated, CD Projekt has held their Spring Conference. GOG has the video if you wish to watch the entire thing but some specific points were released on The Witcher 2. For those who preordered through GOG, a downloader will be released in late April so you can preload 90% of the game from May 10, in preparation for the release on the 17th. Again, for those that preorderd, you have until the end of May to convert into an actual sale.
The Witcher Enhanced Edition Director's Cut will also be on sale for 50% off from May 10 - 24.
Shacknews has further details and notes the non-GOG versions will contain SecuROM:
CD Projekt revealed that The Witcher 2 will utilize SecuROM copy-protection for its retail release, deciding it was the least intrusive way to protect its content from piracy. Though they are aware some gamers will groan at the decision to use SecuROM, CD Projekt noted that the game will allow for "unlimited installations on an unlimited number of computers" and allow "play on up to five computers at once." The game requires an internet connection for the game's initial activation. According to the presentation, this will ensure that The Witcher 2 cannot be played before the game's May 17 release.
