You’re gonna love that full frontal shot…if your computer can handle it.
Virtual Programming announced today the release of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition for the Mac. And all you have to do is check out the trailer on VP’s site to realize that this is going to be the best RPG your going to play on the Mac this year. The graphics are the best I’ve seen in a game yet, and the voice-overs are professionals…no voices from the sound-guys girlfriend’s sister here.
The Witcher 2 continues the story of Geralt of Rivia from the first game, as chaos reigns and bloody assassinations become commonplace in a world where cruelty and violence are daily fare.
Follow the intense, emotionally charged, non-linear storyline, as you are forced to make crucial decisions in order to succeed, faced with rampaging monsters and fierce battles at every turn in the most lively and believable game world ever created. Decisions are crucial because each choice you make impacts the development of the storyline, resulting in different endings depending on the path you chose.
VP promises a new combat system that merges dynamic battles with RPG mechanics and tactical options using the REDengine, the game engine that CDProjekt Red, the publisher of the game, created. The engine provides for faster loading times and better speed in game. Also, we didn’t have to deal with that lousy DRM mess that PC gamers “tested out” when the game first launched. Sucks to be them, eh?
The Witcher 2 received game rankings in the high 80′s with review scores of 9 out of 10 on average. The Enhanced Edition includes additional content set in previously unseen locations, expanding the story and introducing new characters, mysteries and monsters; all new animations and cut scenes; and all of the DLC and improvements seen in the 2.0 version of the game, including Arena mode, Dark mode, and a more extensive tutorial system.
Hope it’s worth it, because the minimum system requirements require a high-end Mac to play it:
- OS X version 10.7.5 or later
- Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo
- Memory: 4GB RAM
- Graphics: GeForce GT 650M 512MB (on 1440×900, medium), Radeon HD 5770 1GB (on 1440×900, low)
