Witcher 2 flashback video helps new players catch-up on plot

CD Projekt RED has released a new video detailing the history of the legendary class of monster slayers known as the witchers from the upcoming role-playing game, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition.  Why are the witchers able to drink poisonous potions? Why do they wield two types of swords? Why are they masters of combat? All these questions are answered in the latest video released by the creators of the game.
The two-minute animation shows off the incredible powers and physiology of the witchers in vivid, animated detail.  Witchers are both feared and revered—particularly the one known as Geralt of Rivia, the protagonist of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition which launches April 17 worldwide for the Xbox 360 and PC.
