Gaming Nexus caught up with CDProjekt's Adam Bandowski on the upcoming Xbox version and the Enhanced Edition for The Witcher 2.
Will this new Enhanced Edition be as Enhanced as the old Enhanced Edition was for The Witcher 1? Snippet:
So you’re adapting the game to the console, could you tell us what the difference between adapting a game and “porting” is?Slash, slash, roll. Only the best survive the transformation process.
We’ve rewritten the game code so it feels native to the console. We’ve rebuilt large parts of the game so we can achieve the same fidelity of gameplay that we have in the PC version. You’ll be amazed by how much we squeezed out of the Xbox 360. We dare say The Witcher 2 is one of the best looking games ever to be released on this platform. On seeing the X360 version for the first time, many people were amazed that it looks almost as good as it does on the PC. Also we re-adapted the controls for the Xbox gamepad, that is to say, the PC version supported gamepad controls, but now they’re close to being perfect. Also, the spectacular combat in The Witcher 2 Enhanced Edition really flows on the Xbox 360. You feel like a real sword master as you slash through ranks of foes and roll through pools of monster blood.
