Video: The Witcher 2 Hope Trailer

Before the actual game footage even starts, check out that list of all the different elements that give this game an M rating: Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Nudity, Strong Language, Strong Sexual Content, Use of Drugs. Those Poles at CD Projekt are not fooling around. Anyway, here's (presumably) the last look at The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings before the game's launch this Tuesday. Based on this video we can expect a lot of characters turning their heads, either to look at things or away from other things, possibly in slow motion. The video also hints at a few of those M-rated elements above, although doesn't give too much away. Why buy the naked, drug abusing cow when you can get the violent sexual swearing for free?

Does the fact that this game is releasing the same day as Rockstar's L.A. Noire mean that we've finally gotten Fox News to shut up about virtual rape and murder simulators, or should we expect another round of alarmist shrieking in a couple of weeks?

[Update} After the break check out three other trailers for the game, all of which are a little more straightforward than the lyrical one above. Love and Blood and Disdain and Fear cover a bit of the story in the game, while How to Kill a Witcher focuses on combat. Each of the first three contains a special message for gamers, such as promising free DLC and asking people to avoid pirating the game because they want to keep making them. How polite!

Haha crazy! My brother randomly found this game in a box of stuff, and I'm almost finished completing the original one. Fun coincidence that you guys are posting about it now. Great game! Very entertaining!

I got the game ages ago, but my computer at the time couldn't handle it.
I later bought it on Steam, but haven't gotten around to playing it yet.

That said, the first copy I bought was a Special Edition and it had an artbook that was little more than a glorrified playboy book thingy.
THat kinda soured me on the whole game.

It'd be nice to see CD Projekt do something other than the Witcher, particularly a game that allows you to choose your sex, appearance, and sexuality/romances. As is, I'm not into the solely hetero white dude power fantasy story.

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
