The Witcher 2 trailer brings Xbox 360 players up to speed on story

A lot of things went down in 2007's PC hit, The Witcher. True, you don't need to know any of it to enjoy The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings for Xbox 360, yet CD Projekt has graciously taken it upon itself to educate the console crowd on Geralt's past deeds in this story synopsis video:

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition is an Xbox 360 version of CD Projekt's PC sequel. The studio has been careful not to call its console edition a port, claiming the game will ship with enough extras and improvements to make it a somewhat new experience on the Xbox 360. Features of the so-called Enhanced Edition include all the current PC updates, DLC, extra characters, quests, and locations.

“We took special effort to beef up the game for the Xbox release,” says Jan Bartkowicz, DC Projekt's storywriter, in last month's article, The Witcher 2 devs detail Xbox 360's Enhanced Edition. “We are in this great situation where we already had the game out there and people experienced it. We had a lot of community feedback, and we want to put all this in this game and make it better.”

The PC version worked its magic on GR's staff, earning a perfect score in our The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings super review. We're interested to see if The Witcher 2 can pull a repeat performance on Xbox 360 when it arrives worldwide on April 17.
