Wander through a forest of death in this Witcher 2 story video

Even monster-slayers need a break now and then. In a stand-alone short story heralding the arrival of the Xbox 360 version of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, antihero Geralt of Rivia tours the sentinel trees of a forest. Naturally, his totally acceptable one-sided conversation with his horse abruptly ends when he encounters a few bloody signs of battle. Equally natural is his reaction of catching a quick nap among the carnage and taking a swig of the ol’ flask. Why? Because that’s the norm for someone with creepy cat eyes and a facial scar longer than a ruler. Check out developer CD Projekt RED’s "52 and a half" below.
