Simply gorgeous.
Simply gorgeous.

The critically acclaimed RPG The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings is now available on the Mac App Store. The development team promises that your choices really do matter, and will determine the fate of the people and kingdoms in the game. You’ll fight blood-thirsty monsters as protagonist Geralt of Rivia, as well as navigate politics, lies, and gorgeous environments.

The full Enhanced Edition includes all the extras in an uncut version for $19.99, for a limited time on the App Store. It was previously available on Good Old Games and Steam.

Only the latest Macs are able to handle this game, so the developers at CD Projekt RED have prepared a way for you to make sure your Mac can run it, graphically. Head over to the Witcher 2 web page and check your Mac’s compatibility, either by downloading an app that will check automatically or by clicking through some web buttons to specify which specific Mac you own. My mid-2011 Macbook Air isn’t able to run this new edition, unfortunately, but yours may, so be sure to check it out.

You are Geralt of Rivia, a witcher, a member of a mysterious caste of professional beast-slayers created through brutal training and mutation. Witchers specialize in tracking down and killing monsters. Long gone are the days when beasts lived near human settlements in every forest and cave, and the folk of the Northern Kingdoms held witchers in high regard. The age of elf and dwarf massacres has come, a time when men rival monsters in the evil they do, a time when mutated witchers are regarded as dangerous outcasts, neither human nor nonhuman. Amidst this chaos, Geralt is drawn into a bloody conspiracy. Accused of killing a king, the witcher embarks on a solitary quest to clear his name and uncover the mysteries of his past.
