CD Projekt RED have released a new flashback trailer for their upcoming game, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings.
This latest trailer shows players who haven’t played The Witcher 1 to know what happened. For those who want to play the first one or are currently playing through it, we advise you not to watch as it will contain massive spoilers. This trailer shows that the first game is not required in order to play the 2nd one.
Marcin Blacha, a story writer at CD Projekt RED said the following:
“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). There the witcher will meet some old friends: Triss Merigold, the poet Dandelion, the dwarf Zoltan Chivay. Those who played the first game will recall some of this cast. A few dialogs refer to the first game, but recognizing these references just gives a little more meaning. 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.”
