Check Out The Witcher 2's Kickass New Opening Cinematic

At yesterday's for the upcoming Xbox 360 port of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings (my thoughts here), the folks at CD Projekt also showed us a brand-new intro cinematic that they had created for the game.

It is... pretty damned sweet. It shows Letho, the gravely-voiced kingslaying Witcher antagonist from the game, using some very Witcherish alchemical magic to take out a ship filled with soldiers and bodyguards. And of course, a King. The game's not called Assassins of Sailors after all, is it?

Of course, you won't pull off anything quite so grand in the actual game The Witcher 2. Mostly you'll just walk around, stab monsters, and sex hot sorceresses. But that's okay. It's still a cool trailer.

I don't know why, but I love when Letho sneezes and wipes his nose. I'm being entirely serious when I say that kind of griminess is exactly why I love these games.
