Tomek Gop takes his time to explain The Witcher 2 to RPS.
RPS: So let’s talk about the story: what’s going on in The Witcher 2?
Gop: Well, I must assume you have played The Witcher 1? But anyway at the end of that you will have noticed that there is something going on. We were, of course, already planning to extend the story. At the end of the game there is a scheme, someone is trying to kill the king. The Witcher 2 is this, it’s a direct sequel. Things that happen in The Witcher 2 take much wider scale, both in land and in politics. There are more of the guy who tries to kill the king, something drives them, and it’s that you are finding out about. The guy that tried to kill the king will start off the main thread in The Witcher 2, and you are going to find out more about that. Geralt would like to find out more about the assassin, but there are still some area of Temeria in which there is a rebellion, and it’s to one of these areas that the king travels, asking Geralt to go with him. You start at the castle of a female baron, and it’s a prologue to the game. We have shown some stuff from act one, but something has happened before that in the prologue. You’ve found stuff out, you’ve met knew people. It’s going to be epic, a boom!
So you start at the castle of a female baron. A baroness. I see. The game apparently starts with some Witcher-like emotional engagement if you know what I mean.
