The Witcher Preview

The folks at Joystiq have cranked out a hands-on preview of The Witcher, after checking out CD Projekt's RPG firsthand at this year's Penny Arcade Expo.
The story also looks to be much more interesting than you tend to get in Action RPGs, partially due to the rich and lengthy source material and partially due to CD Projekt's efforts at making a game that hits on relevant social issues of our day. According to Liberty, the game touches on mature topics such as environmental destruction and racism and forces the player to make difficult moral decisions. To make things even trickier on the player, the story will change depending on your decisions -- but sometimes it may take 10-15 hours until you find out what you changed. The developers really want to make you put serious consideration into how you play the game.
