The Witcher 2 is getting mod tools. We previously knew...that fact and that fact alone, but at GamesCom last week developers CD Projekt showed off the game's upcoming REDkit, and it's looking terrific.

Far from being just a simple level editor or means of sliding mods into the game, REDkit looks to be one step short of being an RPG creator, with users able to do everything from build new Witcher 2 missions to crafting new levels in new worlds using new characters, and if you can be bothered, you can even insert your own dialogue and cutscenes.

It'll be out next year, but CD Projekt is currently taking beta testers here.
