Atari Brings 'The Witcher' to Europe - Screens

by Rainier on Aug. 31, 2006 @ 5:15 a.m. PDT

The Witcher is set in a rich fantasy world where you can't see the line between good and evil. Geralt, the game's hero, is The Witcher - master swordsman and a professional monster-slayer. Although these skills come in handy, not everything can be handled by the sword. You also have to adjust your actions to the day-and-night cycle. Every choice you make can determine which of game's three endings you'll see.

The Witcher transcends traditional fantasy role-playing by throwing players into a unique world rife with political intrigue, in which the lines between good and evil are blurred, with players taking the role of Geralt, a legendary monster slayer and master swordfighter with supernatural abilities and reflexes. The Witcher presents a fresh approach to traditional role-playing, blending an expansive, twisting plotline – in which the impact of individual decisions can drastically alter the outcome of the game – and fast-paced combat against a wide variety of foes.

“The talented and passionate development team at CD Projekt has invested an enormous amount of time and love into The Witcher, resulting in a tremendous game that blends stunning graphics and engaging combat with an extraordinary traditional role-playing experience,” said Cyril Voiron, Marketing Director, Atari Europe. “We are excited to reinforce our commitment to delivering the best role-playing games in the world by bringing this highly impressive title to gamers in Europe and Asia and we’re working towards The Witcher becoming the RPG of 2007.”

“We are delighted to begin a long and mutually beneficial relationship with Atari, a publishing partner that shares our commitment to delivering a top-quality role-playing game,” said Michal Kicinski, Joint CEO of CD Projekt. “We are very much looking forward to working with Atari to bring this distinctive fantasy world that we love to a broad audience.”
