OXM UK: The Witcher: Rise of the White Wolf Preview

You might not have heard of silver-haired swordsman Geralt, lead character in a series of novels by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski, but his hack-and-slash monster-hunting adventures as The Witcher have proved enormously popular on the PC.

Atari announced this month that the game will be coming to the Xbox 360, built from the ground up with an updated engine, brand-spanking-new graphics and a whole hunk of new content.

One of the major criticisms of the original PC version was a slightly awkward and unintuitive combat mechanic, and with the move to a control pad this is one of the first things to be overhauled.

The story is too old to be commented.
