The Witcher 2: Alot Like Arkham Asylum Or Demon's Souls


Tomasz Gop, of CD Projekt, has likened his upcoming sequel, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, to another dark title, From Software's Demon's Souls.

In an interview with Edge Gop stated,
I cant say specifically whether its Heavy Rain, Demons Souls or Arkham Asylum that has inspired us most over the past few years its probably a mix of all of them."

I think everyone will find elements of Demons Souls, though, definitely.

We dont auto-scale opponents, for example. If you want to compare it to anything, Demons Souls is definitely good. Id like that, for sure.
Gop also stated that the studio did not back away from the mature themes presented in its storyline, very similar to Demon's Souls.
Not everybody feels comfortable with playing games that do not always tell you what to do. But on the other hand, we always tell people that this is an adult game, its a mature game.

So I could say that young people wont be that keen on The Witcher 2 but then, on the other hand, thats not such a bad thing.

We probably are one of the few developers that do not give up too much in terms of accessibility. In that respect I think we maybe are a bit like From Software. That would be a good comparison.
The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings is out next month for the PC.
