    This game has been on my radar for a while now, its getting closer to release and I'm slightly more excited - I really enjoyed the first game and am definitely looking forward to a new Action-RPG to sink my teeth into.

    Some video footage, including a video that shows the non-linear gameplay (2nd video):









    And some screens/wallpapers:

    Don't get this confused with the cancelled console game 'The Witcher: Rise of the White Wolf' which was a planned console port of teh original PC game (although with many improvements).

    Pretty good for a small Polish development studio :) and fans of ME/ME2 and DA:O (plus those rather weird ones that liked Fable 2 and 3) you'll definitely enjoy playing this - check out the 1st one if you haven't already :)

    I played the first one quite a bit, I hated how linear it was though, in the sense that it wasn't an open world you couldn't jump over hedges and had to follow paths to get to your destination, if it had been set in a proper open world like fallout for example it would of been brilliant.

    Hope the sequel brings more!

    With the sequel they've gone very non-linear with the story - this is a big plus. So hopefully the world is more of the open variety!

    The story in the first one if i remember right was non-linear, the issue was that the actual game world sucked you could almost see the edges of the world (i.e. big pictures of 'distant' mountains that you could walk into) it was so boring!

    Story is massive in a SP game, but in an RPG the world (imo) has to be open to do what you want, when you want.

    At the end of the Witcher 2 debut trailer there is a hidden message (a 1 frame embed) at the 2 minute mark from CD Projekt:

    Now while this doesn't say specifically that there will be more to the world, it does say that they learnt from the feedback of the first and have worked accordingly for the second!

    To quote zeropunctuation... isn't the witcher just a single player "mmorpger"?!?!??!??

    a living world would be hard in a linear environment, i think it will be more open, perhaps not on the scale of fallout series though
