Almost two weeks before its premiere, the Dark Edition of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings has been sold out in the United States. A few weeks ago the game developer CD Projekt RED revealed that this edition is no longer available in Europe, so the trend is not really a surprise.
"It's great news for us, that the Dark Edition was such a success worldwide. I hope players will appreciate the gadgets we prepared for them. We'd like to remind you that there are still remaining copies of The Enhanced Edition of The Witcher 2. By buying this version of the game you still get more, than you would expect from a standard Xbox game. Apart from the manual and the game itself it contains an official soundtrack CD, a quest handbook and a world map," says Michał Nowakowski, of CD Projekt RED's board.
The Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings will be available for Xbox 360 and PC on April 17th. On the 5th of April CD Projekt RED will host a conference in its HQ. During a streamed presentation the developer will present more details concerning the upcoming release.
In The Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings the player takes the role of Geralt of Rivia, a professional monster slayer, a witcher. Entangled in the political turmoil that engulfed Temeria, Geralt helped quell the rebellion of the Order of the Flaming Rose. Soon after, he saved King Foltest's life when the monarch was attacked by a witcher-like assassin.
The game features an intense, emotionally-charged, non-linear story in which every decision may lead to dire consequences. The complex plot is crisped with spectacular, brutal and tactical combat mechanics. All this is set in a deep, rich game world where ominous events shape the lives of entire populations while blood thirsty monsters rage about. The gorgeous environments of the game look astonishing thanks to CD Projekt RED's in house engine -- the REDengine. The Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings Enhanced Edition is one of the best looking RPGs ever to be released for the Xbox 360.
