The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings sees the mature, violent and morally ambiguous world of Andrzej Sapkowski's fantasy novels brought to the Xbox 360, to provide rich console RPG experience.
The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings has been around for a while on the PC, but Xbox owners have been clamouring for a chance to join the adventure on consoles. Amongst aficionados of fantasy fiction, The Witcher's rich world of dark elvish intrigue stands out from the crowd and the way in which the world of the books has been translated into gameplay has been widely applauded.
It will be good to see The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings finally see a much broader audience on a mainstream console. Normally in the wake of a series of high-profile fantasy RPGs, including the massive popularity of Skyrim it would be easy to see a game title such as these slip by unnoticed. However I think that the sheer quality of the The Witcher 2's fiction, combined with a tightly bound and well voice-performed story should see it find a welcoming audience upon its release.
In spite of a tightly focused story, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings still offers plenty of player freedom and your choices will be reflected in how the story plays out and the options available to you. This game promises an incredible narrative experience and will definitely be one to look out for upon its release.
The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings is currently planned for release on the Xbox 360 on 17th April 2012.
