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!
