CD Projekt RED’s The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition has officially gone gold for the Xbox 360. This comes after its initial announcement in 2011 to release at the end of that year, and its subsequent delay.
A press release was sent out earlier this morning by CD Projekt RED letting us know that you can plan on snagging your copy of the PC hit for the Xbox 360 on April 17h, 2012. The release also focused on the announcement of a press conference set to take place on April 5th. CD Projekt RED says we can get our hopes up for “something truly extraordinary.”
Along with the announcement coming on April 5th, the release detailed that the Xbox 360 version of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition will include a world map, CD of the game’s soundtrack, a quest handbook, and some other never-before-seen goodies. The Dark Edition of the game will include everything that comes bundled with the Enhanced Edition, as well as a Witcher themed medallion, an art book, stickers, and a behind-the-scenes DVD of the game.
Kevin Kebodeaux, Senior Vice President of Sales Americas for Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, explained his excitement for the game and then had this to say:
“This game contains all of the elements that make The Witcher a truly immersive experience that will undoubtedly captivate console gamers just as it has and continues to engage PC gamers.”
If you own The Witcher 2 on PC already, GOG.com will be making all of the Xbox 360 edition’s extra content available to you for free.
Given the game’s success on the PC platform, we are extremely excited to see how this game’s console counterpart will look.
