I see that this wiki has forked, with a new version being created on Curse. I'm sorry we didn't get a chance to talk to you all about the idea before it happened.
But, what's done is done, and now hopefully we can help this version revive and grow back into a healthy and happy wiki.
The first thing I'm going to do, sadly, is remove Game Widow's rights here. As ex-Wikia staff, she was aware of what we do and don't allow during forking, and clearly went outside of that. I'll remove Ausir's rights at the same time, just to make the list clearer (he is already banned from Wikia for similar problems elsewhere).
Then it's just a case of a bit of clean-up, and making sure the wiki is remains open for business!
I'm not sure how much Game Widow disc…Read more >

...And as expected, CD Projekt RED has officially announced The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for sometime in 2014 for PC's as well as all other "high-end platforms". The new game will take place in an open world, similar but larger than the one in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and will feature further confrontations with the Wild Hunt.

Embedded in the teaser video for Cyberpunk video is a secret message with a cryptic reference which would appear to be about The Witcher. CD Projekt suggest that we "can probably guess the game [they]'re talking about". Is it The Witcher 3 ? If so, stay tuned for an announcement on February 5th, 2013.

I'm part of Wikia's staff team. As you may know, we’ve recently been reviewing images that have been uploaded to Wikia, due to repeated ToU violations. Instead of deleting problem images when we get complaints about them, we have started to actively look for and remove them across Wikia.
So I just updated Witcher 2 with 3.1(?) or .0 update and opened game ALL titles and names are missing on Inventory Journal. ANYBODY?????Help
Thanks ahead of time if you can help I am 1/2 thru game boohoohooRead more >
As most of you know CD Projekt RED officially announced it's next franchise will be called Cyberpunk. It is a game based off of the highly successful pen and paper rpg Cyberpunk 2020 and Cyberpunk 2013. I have created a wiki for it and I want it to be the main place for people to get updates on development and breaking news. I also want it to be the main source of information when the game comes out. But I need help. I know you have a successful wiki and The Witcher is made by the same company. I was wondering if anyone would like to help me with undertaking this project. I am not asking you to stop helping at The Witcher wiki I am asking you to just help me. I hope we can also become affiliated because the games are produced by the same c…Read more >
Before I start, if this does not belong here (I can't find an official CD Projekt Red forum), please delete it. Sorry in advance, if this is the case.

For more information, please check out (and contribute to) the Cyberpunk wiki at cyberpunkgame.wikia.com. Thanks everybody!Read more >
With The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Xbox 360 edition set to hit stores tomorrow, many critics have already weighed in with their opinions on this edition. Reviewers seem to be mostly positive about this game as it currently has a Metacritic score of 91.
The following is a selection of a few of these reviews.
- Impulse Gamer
Score: 9.5/10 "Best of all, those gamers who have not played the previous game can still enjoy this title because Geralt has lost his memory and as you progress, you soon get fragments of it back through some very stylised animations. In the game, Witchers are described as both monster hunters and problem solvers and Geralt does these both nicely in this land where humans, elves, dwarves and dragons live as he attempts to …

My understanding is Geralt and Yennefer had a minor break up and Triss seduced geralt with magic.. but Yennefer and Triss are best friends or were? How did Yennefer react to Geralt "cheating" and did Triss just not care?[in the books she mentions she's jealous and envious of Geralt's and Yen's relationship]. In the witcher video games does Triss take advantage of Geralt's memory loss and hook up with him? Where do they stand now? I assume their going to meet in the next Witcher game, how will Yennefer react and does Yennefer even remember Geralt [whole memory loss thing from the wild hunt] ? Does anybody even mention Yennefer and Ciri to Geralt? I know he start regaining his memory of Yennefer and Ciri in The Witcher 2 but does Triss or an…Read more >

Today, CD Projekt's Adam Kiciński has announced that The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, originally announced for the Xbox 360 console with a November 2011 date, has been moved back to 2012.
- ”We have decided not to withhold information and to tell our fans immediately of the Xbox 360 launch moving to Q1 2012. As we have stated many times before, The Witcher 2 for Xbox 360 will be an adaptation and not regular port. The extra time will allow us to polish the title to perfection, so that the game offers an ideally balanced, fantastic experience to gamers. As the launch of the game approaches, we will be sharing more details how it will be released on Xbox 360. I trust that despite the release date shift, players will be satisfied with what we a…

I've gotten quite a few belly laughs out of some of the lines in The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, so I thought I'd try to suss out what everyone else found the funniest. I'll start off the list, but please add to it!
My absolute all-time favourite line in the game is uttered by Skalen Burdon as Philippa Eilhart is administering the antidote to Saskia. He says "My favorite type of magic — Lesbomancy." A close second is Geralt's reaction if Dandelion actually goes into the succubus' lair: "Fucking idiot actually went in!"
So what's your favourite line?Read more >

According to Dark Side of Gaming, CD Projekt has been sued by Namco BANDAI, the international distributor of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. Namco is claiming that CD Projekt broke the agreement between the two companies by removing the DRM copy protection in a patch without Namco's knowledge, and by choosing THQ as the distributor of the Xbox 360 port of the game. Because of this dispute, Namco Bandai is now withholding payments of 1,225,000 euro (ca. $1.75 million dollars).
This is what Adam Kiciński of CD Projekt said about it:
- As with most cases, we first tried to end the dispute peacefully. Attempts failed and because of this, we hoped that our partner would send the case to the court. The agreement that we signed last year, concerned…

There is a discussion on the GOG.com forums about how to get dwarven armor fragments for the Mahakaman Sahil steel sword. I was confused because when I imported my save from TW1, I was handed the Mahakaman Rune Sahil. There's a big difference between these two swords. The one I have does 10-17 damage, the other one does 25-35-ish. I would have assumed they were the same sword, but obviously not! I don't like changing pages without notifying someone, so I'm not sure what to do with this little tidbit.Read more >
Old Witcher people will know me as Treasa, from the boards. My Youtube channel is Treasacello. There is 1 public vid there about secondary attributes on TWEE potions. Feel free to use it if it helps.

CD Projekt's Tomasz Gop talked to Eurogamer about the upcoming Xbox 360 version of their hit cRPG, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, which is currently available only for the PC.
The PC version of the game has quite impressive visuals. The developer promised that the 360 version will definitely look better than the PC version with minimum graphics settings, and while he's not promising anything, they're doing what they can to make the game look as good on the console as the medium settings on the PC.
The game is coming to Microsoft's console in November. No plans for a PlayStation 3 version have been announced yet, unfortunately. As previously stated, of the game's DLC will be free on the 360, just like they are in the PC version.Read more >

Sad, but true. Anyone playing The Witcher 2 will have noticed by now that not only does Geralt have to enter meditation mode to drink his potions, but he just tosses the flasks away when he's done! Oh Geralt, you disappoint me!Read more >
The second patch for The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings will be available on 03/06/2011.
Also along with the new patch there is a new DLC called "Barbers and Coiffeuses". As you can guess, now Geralt will be able to change his hairstyle.
Some traders also provide barbershop services. For a small fee, Geralt can get them to change his hairstyle. Search notice boards for information about barbers and coiffeuses offering services of this nature in a given location.
- In Flotsam, in Chapter 1 of the game, these services are available from the antique book dealer Einar Gausel.
- In Chapter 2, look either for Sambor in Henselt's Camp or for Felicia Cori in Vergen.
- This apprentice sorceress also provides hairstyling services in Loc Muinne, in Chapter 3 of t…

The Xbox 360 version of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings has just been officially announced in an Optimus stock market filing (in Polish). Optimus is the parent company of CD Projekt. The company announced a publishing deal with Atari in North America for the console version, just like with the PC edition.
Some Polish stores have already announced the release date as November 15. We'll likely learn whether it's true during the conference.
The announcement was made during the ongoing CD Projekt Summer Conference, during which we're likely to learn additional details.Read more >
There's been news all around the web about a porn parody of The Witcher being in the works. A supposed DVD cover of The Bitcher, from Digital Playground studio, known for its high-budget adult movies, starring Evan Stone as Geralt and Sasha Grey as Yennefer being posted on various sites, including ones as popular as Destructoid.
I'm sure the news excited many fans of the Witcher series, and I hate to be the bringer of bad news, but no such movie is actually being made. As it turns out, the story was made up by Polish fantasy writer Jakub Ćwiek in his monthly column in the Nowa Fantastyka science fiction magazine, where each time he writes about false but plausible events, and each time someone manages to fall for it (but for the first time inte…Read more >
Two major Polish gaming stores, Gram.pl (which used to be owned by CD Projekt) and Ultima already offer The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings for the Xbox 360 platform. Both stores list the release date as November 15, 2011. Is this a premature leak or just speculation? If true, it will certainly face tough competition in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
The Xbox 360 version of the game was already rated M by the ESRB recently as well. For now, nothing is known about when (or even whether) the game will come to the PlayStation 3.
We're very likely to find out either at CD Projekt's press conference tomorrow or at E3, as CD Projekt's Tomasz Gop already stated recently that E3 will bring good news for console gamers. Stay tuned, we'll make sure to bring …Read more >

CD Projekt's Tomasz Gop told Eurogamer that a brand new Witcher project will be announced at E3 next month.
The Witcher 2 senior producer didn't reveal much, but he did say that the company might have good news for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 users. Even long before the PC premiere of the game, there have been many rumors of a console port, which seem to be pretty much confirmed now. I wonder if CD Projekt intends to resurrect the canceled console remake of the first game, The Witcher: Rise of the White Wolf, or whether console players will need to play the first game in its original PC version in order to know the whole story.
One thing is certain - the game that is about to be announced is not The Witcher 3 yet. Although given the great reviews…Read more >
The first piece of downloadable content for The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, titled Troll Trouble is now available for download for free to all registered owners of the game.

As announced by CD Projekt, all of The Witcher 2 small DLC packs (consisting of a single questline) will be free. However, the game will have larger expansion packs later on that will cost you money.Read more >

Apparently, the Russian publisher of The Witcher 2 decided to beat the Polish Playboy session of virtual Triss Merigold and decided to release a calendar with a nude model posing as Triss and a non-nude one (unfortunately for most female fans and some male ones) posing as Geralt.
Triss is a Ukrainian model known as Klodi Monsoon. You can see more pictures of her on her DeviantArt.
Here's a video from the photo shoot.
And some pics:
Myself, I'm still nerd-raging about Triss lacking her scars from the Battle of Sodden Hill that she's supposed to have according to the books.

Yes, it's sad but true.

I'm looking at you Gollacz! This is insane! I'm lucky enough to be able to read the books in French, but for many fans of the Witcher, this is just unacceptable. I expect the Italians will probably publish all the books before the English translations ever get done .. and they only just published La Spada del Destino (The Sword of Destiny).Read more >
