If you're starting to get excited for the looming release of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition on Xbox 360 later this month, but haven't played the original The Witcher on PC, then CD Projekt has you covered with a trailer recapping all of the major events from the first game.
It's safe to say that there are some MAJOR SPOILERS in the video, so if you're planning to play The Witcher one day, steer well clear.
Should you be starting The Witcher saga with The Witcher 2, then watch away by all means. The video will catch you right up and have you ready to assume the role of Geralt of Rivia as the sequel picks up where the first game left off. However, CD Projekt is keen to stress that you don't need to have played The Witcher to enjoy The Witcher 2.
"The story of The Witcher 2 begins just after the events of the first part. But you don’t have to know the previous events, because the sequel has a completely new story and sends the protagonist, Geralt, east of Wyzima (the main location of the first game)," said Marcin Blacha, Story Writer at CD Projekt RED. "If The Witcher 2 is your first encounter with Geralt, you will smoothly enter the story. Those who know the first game will feel the continuity between the both parts."
The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition is out on April 17th, 2012. Watch the spoilerific trailer below to find out what happens in The Witcher 1.
