Defining new standards for realistic, non-linear game narration, The Witcher 2 spins a mature, thought-provoking story to produce one of the most unique RPGs ever released on consoles. Every player decision may lead to dire consequences, which have an actual impact on future events and the world. In addition to its epic story, the game features a complex combat system that uniquely combines dynamic action with tactical depth.
Thanks to the new, ultra-modern REDengine, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition features both beautiful graphics and sophisticated in-game mechanics, drawing players into the most vivid and realistic world ever created in a video game. The Witcher 2 sets new boundaries not only in the terms of technical beauty, but also presents a unique atmosphere thanks to the widely praised artistic design. The Witcher 2 is arguably one of the best-looking games ever to come to Microsoft’s console.
All the RPG greatness of The Witcher 2 comes to the Xbox 360 in the richest and most plentiful edition ever. The Enhanced Edition adds around 4 hours of additional quests to the award-winning RPG and makes the intense story even more intriguing thanks to 35 minutes of new cut-scenes and cinematics. The new edition of the game comes with all the previous DLCs and upgrades including the arcade arena mode and a completely separate tutorial system.
The Enhanced Edition update for PC is available free of charge at its official website. We should note that some PC gamers have experienced installation errors and graphical glitches when upgrading to it via the Auto-Update feature. If you have such issues, go ahead and download ‘Part 2’ from here, place it in your EE patch download folder replacing the old corrupted one, and run afterwards the ‘TW2EE_Patch’ file. It should patch your game without errors this time around. Below you’ll find a video that shows off a bad installation.
