Check Out The Witcher 2's Kickass New Opening Cinematic

At yesterday's for the upcoming Xbox 360 port of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings (my thoughts here), the folks at CD Projekt also showed us a brand-new intro cinematic that they had created for the game.

It is... pretty damned sweet. It shows Letho, the gravely-voiced kingslaying Witcher antagonist from the game, using some very Witcherish alchemical magic to take out a ship filled with soldiers and bodyguards. And of course, a King. The game's not called Assassins of Sailors after all, is it?

Of course, you won't pull off anything quite so grand in the actual game The Witcher 2. Mostly you'll just walk around, stab monsters, and sex hot sorceresses. But that's OK. It's still a cool trailer.

I don't know why, but I love when Letho sneezes and wipes his nose. I'm being entirely serious when I say that kind of griminess is exactly why I love these games.


    I want that freaking medallion, wonder what the chances are of it being made available to everyone, or at least people who already own the PC version -.-

    that trailer alone made me want to preorder it.... looks pretty damn nice!

    That king's crown is fairly attached to his head if the assassin dude and just tie it on his belt like that.

      Its not tied to his belt, if you look, his head is in a net, which is tied to his belt.

    Best RPG game I have played for some years. It makes Skyrim look like Modern Warfare.

    From someone who played the PC version, believe it or not, the game really does feel as epic as the trailer.

    I knew there was a reason I let him live. Such badassery.

    Kirk, not to be pedantic (but I will anyway) but he's not sneezing, he's actually clearing out his nose... a man needs to have a clear sinus after all when about to pull off a job like this ;-)

    Can't wait to pick this one up... problem is, will I be done with Mass Effect 3 by then... still have a 2011 backlog.
