While reiterating that nothing concerning downloadable content for The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings has been announced, Tomasz Gop, the game’s senior producer, admits that the developers have been “definitely thinking about this one.”
“[There’s] a lot of ideas, and new possibilities with the new tech. We’d like to make sure we do the game first though,” Gop says. “Previous technology had limitations mostly connected with the RPG core of the game. Dialogues, cutscenes, character interactions, scripting the storyline and so on. We’ve removed a lot of limitations, some of which were pretty obvious (the infamous obstacles you couldn’t leap over), and some closer to the production pipeline. Lots of things are now easier for designers, animators and artists to do without programmers’ help.”
“That’s one of the reasons the game looks so good a year before release,” he adds; it’s perhaps even “the best-looking RPG you’ve ever seen“.
