The Witcher 2 to get large 2.0 update

Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings version 2.0 available next week

Posted on
The CD Projekt Fall Conference earlier today has revealed a lot of newinformation regarding The Witcher 2, including the upcoming version 2.0 patch.

Adam Badowski, Studio Director commented “We quite modestly called this new update 2.0, but while testing it, we have realized that this update is, actually bigger than Enhanced Edition known from our first game! So this is a major update not only for us, but also for all those who want to start their adventure with the game and for those who would like to play it again.”

Around 1 milion units sold worldwide and solid financial results are the best proof that that we have the right approach. You don’t need draconian DRM to have good sales and you don’t need costly DLC to have good financial results. You just need to treat you customers fair, and you get not only financial results, but fans admiration which for us is absolutely priceless!”

The Witcher 2 version 2.0 brings gameplay enhancements and features like a new tutorial system, special difficulty setting, arena mode, and more. New Tutorial System gradually explains all gameplay mechanics, from very basic to the most sophisticated systems. The Tutorial ensures that start of the game for everyone will be a pleasureable experience without too steep a learning curve.

On the new Dark difficulty setting, The Witcher 2 is nearly as difficult as Insane, but allows players to save the game. It also provides a completely new set of dark-themed gear with very high stats. Dark mode also includes other special elements related to the dark theme.

Infinitely replayable and progressively more challenging, Arena Mode lets you hone your combat style and techniques against all the different opponents from the game as well as a new monster type, the Werewolf. Dispatch wave upon wave of increasingly more difficult enemies, earning awards that you can use to upgrade abilities, weapons and armor, and to test alchemy. Combat waves will continue until your character is defeated, when you’ll see a statistical summary of results.

Version 2.0 will be available via automatic update to all existing and new users for free on the 29th of September. All versions of the game will update automatically to the 2.0 version, whether bought before or after 29th of September.

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings is now in stores for Windows PC, and is currently on sale until the release of Version 2.0 for $30 at Steam and other distributors. An Xbox 360 version of the game is coming in 2012.
