Some official and not-so-official information squeaked out regarding The Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings. First, the news you’re supposed to hear. The Witcher 2 now has an official release date of May 17, 2011 for the PC, huzzah. Now for the “whoops” news. Courtesy of an accidental early listing my Gamestop (since redacted), The Witcher 2 will offer a Collector’s Edition, and boy is it a doozy.
Costing $129.99, the CE will come with a special in-game item that boosts your sword skills, a behind the scenes DVD, a soundtrack, a special deck of cards with accompanying rulebook, papercraft figures, maps, a damned bust of Geralt, and loads of other trinkets. Awesome, but where’s my night vision goggles?!
