The Witcher 2 Version 2.0 Will Release With Major Changes
By on September 27th, 2011

You have to hand it over to the guys over at CD Projekt RED (CDPR). They make brilliant games and they make sure that the customers who bought their games enjoy it for a while to come. With the original The Witcher, the Polish developer pushed a huge update that changed the game from a buggy and stunted experience to a fleshed out and stunning one for free with the Enhanced Edition. With their sequel, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, CDPR has been releasing update upon update since the day of release. On the 29th of September, the 2.0 patch will be available for the game featuring a host of fixes and three new gaming modes for replayability and additional challenge!

The three new modes for The Witcher 2 are Tutorial, Dark Mode and Arena. Most of it is self-explanatory, but I will write a couple of lines about each because we run a respectable blog here!

  • Tutorial: Considering how suddenly the game dropped you in the middle of a war camp and expected you to know everything implicitly (which was a good thing and a break from the norm of having a tedious tutorial mode), CDPR decided that a [perhaps] tedious tutorial was required. In this mode players rescue a knight called the Bastard of Bolton of Ironford while learning the basics of gameplay, swordplay and… alchemy-play.
  • Dark Mode: This is akin to the Hell Difficulty in Diablo II. Basically every foe in the game is extremely powerful and at times it feels like the game is cheating on you. However, there’s a sub-quest throughout the game outlining a dark legend and some powerful items of said legend are scattered throughout the realm for you to find and use. Sounds like fun!
  • Arena: What I found to be lacking in the original game was that while the combat brilliant, in my zeal I used to commit genocide of every foul thing present in an area and found monsters lacking after a while. The Arena pits Geralt of Rivia against an endless horde of monsters and thus try to quench my enormous bloodthirst.

So will you be re-installing The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings to install this update? I, for one, have not uninstalled the game yet.
