The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings was one of the most technically accomplished and graphically impressive PC titles of last year, boasting the fully scalable RED Engine that made the game look great even on old hardware. Original developer CD Projekt RED has spent almost a year porting The Witcher 2 to Xbox 360 and we’ll soon be able to see how successful the studio’s efforts have been when the game is released in a week’s time.
Many gamers have expressed interest in how well The Witcher 2’s excellent graphics will hold up on Xbox 360 – a console based on technology from more than seven years ago. GameSpot recently placed the PC and Xbox 360 versions side by side and you can see for yourself how the two compare in the video below:
While the PC version sports more advanced post-processing effects and better textures on the ‘High’ setting, the Xbox 360 version looks remarkably similar and maintains a smoooth frame rate from what I can tell. CD Projekt RED has clearly used its substantial technical know-how to optimise the game’s graphical assets for Xbox 360 to produce one of the console’s best-looking titles.
The Witcher 2: Enhanced Edition will be released for Xbox 360 on April 17th. Head over here for more details about this award-winning action RPG and let us know your thoughts on how the two versions’ graphics compare in the comments section below.
