The Witcher 2 Dev Diary Introduces New Engine

If you like your developer diaries deep and lengthy, point your peepers at the new one for The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, which takes a good long look at all the wonderful things CD Projekt RED's new engine allows it to bring to the RPG sequel.

The nine-minute video offers technical titbits from CD Projekt RED folks on topics including quest scripting tools, the dialogue system, using modular characters for NPC diversity, lighting, animation and looking blimming lovely.

The Witcher 2 is due to be released on PC in March 2011, published by Atari in North America. RED remains uncertain about whether there'll be a console edition or not, though should there be, it'd definitely not arrive at the same time as the PC release.
