The Witcher 2 mod tools released

We may have a long wait for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt ahead of us, but at least we should get plenty to keep us busy until then. CD Projekt RED today launched The Witcher 2's promised modding tool set, the REDkit, so hopefully all sorts of wonders and oddities are coming and heck, we can all make our own too.

We may have a long wait for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt ahead of us, but at least we should get plenty to keep us busy until then. CD Projekt RED today launched The Witcher 2's promised modding tool set, the REDkit, so hopefully all sorts of wonders and oddities are coming and heck, we can all make our own too.

RED briefly released the tools by accident last week, but now they're properly out for everyone at the official site. RED has a Wiki with tutorials, to get you started. The kit lets creators futz with the original game, as well as make their own new lands, quests, characters, items, non-linear adventures, and all that sort of stuff. It's the tool set RED itself used to make the game, after all.

If you demand mods now now now, check out Lykaon, a standalone story picked as the best mod made during the REDkit's closed beta test. And look, a launch trailer for REDkit:

      thats pretty cool. at some point i'll need to finish my second playthrough. thanks to their way of having only 2/3 of the game accessible to the player depending on choices in the first playthrough (imagine that, a whole region with quests characters etc hidden and the game is already packed full of content) adding content for free (a few hours of gameplay with the enhanced edition) and now the mod tools that will just like in the first game produce some gameplay modules i'm pretty sure i'll sink another 30-40 hours into this game before witcher 3 comes out.
