A new HD-gameplay video has hit YouTube for the upcoming CD Projekt RED release; ‘The Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings. The new gameplay footage features our ever-aroused hero, Geralt of Rivia, as he walks around a lot, plays dice games and slices various bad guys into small pieces.

The new combat mode certainly appears more fluid and reactive than the first games repetitive moveset. Also visible in the video is a very slick spell-selection wheel that has Geralt igniting, shocking and dazzling his enemies into submission.

The Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings is due for release in Spring, 2011. Let me know what you think of the video below in the comments or via Twitter – @DarkMellie.
