I know a few of you play PC games on a Linux system so the following news is for you. CD Projekt RED announced today the release of the Linux version of The Witcher 2.

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition available on Linux!

With 98 awards garnered, including several Best Of and Game of The Year awards, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings makes its debut on Linux, bringing an unforgettable fantasy adventure to RPG fans on the platform. Spinning a mature and thought-provoking tale of monster hunter Geralt of Rivia, the game offers some of the most iconic and recognizable moments in contemporary RPG history.

"We’re really pumped to be able to invite RPG fans who use Linux to the party," said Marcin Momot, Community Manager, CD PROJEKT RED. "The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings is one of the greatest fantasy adventures on Linux, and I’m sure every role-playing enthusiast with a craving for some quality questing will have tons of fun playing the game!" Momot added.

The Linux version of the game contains all off the previously released updates and content, so gamers can enjoy the most complete version right from the start. The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings is available on Steam.
