Developer- and Publisher-specific Articles: The Witcher
Console role-playing fans itching for a chance to try The Witcher 2 will have to wait a wee bit longer. Developer CD Projekt Red has delayed the release of Assassins of Kings for the 360 due to “expanding and polishing certain elements of the gameplay” and an ongoing legal kerfuffle concerning the game’s distribution overseas. Originally scheduled to ship at the end of this year, the new release date is now set for the first quarter of 2012.
“… one of the most satisfying role-playing experiences to come down the pike in some time.”
CD Projekt RED has announced details of the recently released 1.1 patch for The Witcher 2. The update includes a host of fixes, as well as the removal of the DRM protection, which will allow players “to install and play the game on any number of computers” with no activation code required. Available at thewitcher.com (the patch will not download via the auto-patching system from the launcher), players can also expect an improvement in the frame rate (up to 30%), increased stability, easier installation of DLC, the ability to invert the mouse, and the ability to re-map direction controls on the keyboard. In addition, the first free DLC pack, Troll Trouble quest, is included in the patch.
