Worried that you won’t be able to follow along with the story since you didn’t play the first one? Don’t worry, it wasn’t on Xbox 360 in the first place. Even if you don’t play the very first title in the series the developers, CD Projekt, do a great job with informing you as to what’s going on.
After helping to stop the rebellion orchestrated by the Grand Master of the Order of the Flaming Rose, and saving King Foltest’s life, Geralt, the most prominent of the genetically enhanced, monster hunting mercenaries known as witchers, has become one of the central figures of political turmoil in the Kingdom of Temeria. Geralt continues to protect the King in the monarch’s mission to bring peace to his state. The last bastions of the Order of the Flaming Rose yielded to the royal army, with the only remaining task to pacify the rebellious castle of Baroness La Valette, who announced separation from the Kingdom. But the attempted assassination of the king has changed everything. With the king not safe, and his own loyalties in question, Geralt begins his personal quest – to discover the origin and identity of the mysterious witcher-like assassin.
