At least they did a great job on the PC version first and it just shows what PC game should look like, rather than the low quality graphics we get with console ports.

These valuse will increase objects details and foliage pop-up. Diferrence is big, but with my PC i lose about 7-8 frames.

I didn't really notice vegetation pop up hardly at all. Every now and then but rarely would it catch my attention.

So apparently, with the upcoming release of Xbox 360 version in April, PC version will receive another small expansion for free. It's going to be about 3 hours long and take place in the third act of the game.
We'll also get two new locations, several quests, new in-game animations and movies and a summary of our choices after the game ends.

For anyone who still doesn't own this game, there will also be an Enhanced version available, that will include every update so far.

And btw. to celebrate this, GoG.com has Witcher 2 on sale.

That is good to hear as most game devs do not offer this level of after sales support. The Witcher 2 is the game that got me into RPG's and i am very glad i took the plung. Finished my second playthrough taking the second path in that cross-roads quest (Where as i remained true to Trish the first time, i boned everything that moved the second)

Steam downloaded 11.2 Gbs of material last night. I forgot there was anything else in the works for this game, but I'm happy to play it over again to see what they added.

I just wish I had more graphical horsepower. With a mix of medium and high settings my 560m is really struggling, but it's such a beautiful game I want every last bit of eye candy my laptop can muster.

Don't worry. not even my 680 can run it at full detail. It's the most graphically demanding game currently out there.

Anyways, I can't wait to play through it again with the new material and quests. I beat it once on dark mode after patch 2.0 hit but the story splits about 1/2 way through the game so ther are two completely different paths to play through and 2 totally different sides of the story told.

Looking forward to it - I beat the game not long after release, but I didn't really explore like I could have - I think these Witcher games are my favorites so far, so much to do.

I wonder if you got a double download. As stated above mine was 11Gb, which is bad enough LoL.

Mine is the GoG version, I guess it's international, so it has the English, french, german, and polish audio included. Oh well. I don't remember installing the extra languages, but maybe I picked complete install originally lol.

You can register your Steam key on GoG now too for more languages. Worked for me.
