The Witcher: Enhanced Edition Director's Cut - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (Alice O'Connor)

Few witchers live to have a happy ending but shucks, our lad Geralt has done well for himself. With the tenth birthday of The Witcher games nearing (end of October), a new video from developers CD Projekt Red shows him having a big old knees-up with his mates and loved ones. He is my favourite of all tired old digital men and has been through a lot over a decade and three games. I didn’t realise quite how much I cared for this motley crew until I started tearing up seeing them reunited. Bless ’em. (more…)

The Witcher colouring book

The Witcher franchise is now getting an adult colouring book. It’s adult in two senses – one is the sense of colouring books aimed at adults as a relaxation method being a rising trend in the last few years and the other is the sense where you get a picture of Geralt in the nuddy in that tub to colour in. His witcher junk is hidden beneath the water but it’s not really the sort of fare you find in the Dr Seuss Colouring Book or the My Very Own Hungry Caterpillar Colouring Book. (more…)

An interactive digital comic set in The Witcher universe launches for iPad and iPhone on 17th April, developer CD Projekt has announced.


The free app sees series protagonist Geralt facing off against a werecat in a fight to the death. You'll interact with the story at various points via touch screen controls. A brief clip shown at CD Projekt's Spring Conference earlier today showed a young maiden being undressed with the swipe of a finger. Saucy stuff.


The Polish developer also announced that The Witcher: Enhanced Edition is now available for Mac exclusively from Steam, priced at £6.99/€7.99. It's a hybrid version of the game that works across PC and Mac - if you already own it on PC, you now get a free Mac version too.


There were a few more scraps of Witcher-related news at the event too. CD Projekt revealed that anyone who purchases The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition will receive a complimentary DRM-free back-up copy on GOG, no matter who they originally purchased it from.


Finally, the studio also confirmed that both the Dark Edition and Enhanced Edition of the forthcoming Xbox 360 version of its acclaimed RPG will be stocked by GAME and Gamestation.


It's due out on both Xbox 360 and PC from 17th April.

Fantastic PC (and soon Xbox 360) RPG, The Witcher 2, sold 1,110,055 copies last year, developer CD Projekt Red has revealed.


Of those copies, 270,000 were sold via digital distribution platforms: 40,000 on GOG.com, which leaves the lion's share of the remainder presumably to Steam (numbers not disclosed).


But most "remarkable" to CDPR managing director Adam Badowski, was that 401,543 copies of The Witcher 1 were sold last year.


"I have to admit, though, that the sales results for The Witcher, five years on from the game's premier, are remarkable," he commented.


"If anything, they prove that the content we put into our games ages well.


"The Witcher will continue to generate buzz in the coming years."


Eurogamer recently cornered Adam Badowski for a lengthy chat. He and marketing manager Michal Platkow-Gilewski revealed that CD Projekt Red was already working towards the next generation of consoles. On those machines will be the developer's next two major new games: one a new IP, the other The Witcher 3. They'll arrive simultaneously for PC and next-generation consoles in 2014/15. Witcher those games will arrive when, and Witcher the platforms they'll be on, were questions that couldn't be answered.


Consider that the new IP is being built by a team that's only just being put together, though, and it's likely that project will take longer to make.


We also wallowed on the topic of The Witcher 2 for PS3; talked about how expensive that new CGI Witcher 2 trailer was; and discussed possible next-generation technology not allowing pre-owned games to be played.
