The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition

What is The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition?

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings is an action role-playing video game developed by Polish studio CD Projekt RED for Microsoft Windows. The gameplay of The Witcher 2 takes a marked departure from that of its predecessor as movement is solely through the keyboard and combat moves from the rhythmic mini-game style of the original game to a more fast paced style. The left mouse button is used for fast but weak attacks and the right mouse button for slower but more damaging ones. The ability to lay traps and also to aim and throw ranged weapons was added to the combat system. The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings contains many different paths and storylines, along with multiple endings.

Overview

During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The primary executable is named Launcher.exe. The setup package generally installs about 82 files and is usually about 39.07 MB (40,969,204 bytes).
