The Witcher Blog Update

CD Projekt has added another entry to their blog for The Witcher on IGN, this time talking about some of the technology powering the ambitious RPG. A bit about the AI:
Hundreds of AI-controlled characters with their own needs and goals populate living cities. Advanced combat AI makes battles challenging yet fun. NPCs have dynamic behaviors that change based on analysis of the surroundings, i.e. NPCs react to other NPCs, weather effects, players actions, etc. In addition, combat AI is visually very attractive thanks to hundreds of motion-captured combat animations and special effects.
