What the heck is a Witcher? For those of us not in the know -- those of us waiting for The Witcher 2 to arrive on console -- CD Projekt RED released an educational animated short talking all about these mysterious warriors.
Aside from being equipped with silver weapons that allow them to slay supernatural foes, Witchers are also believed to have unearthly powers of their own. In addition to their strange eyes, these warriors also enter an induced trance when entering combat, making them practically impervious to pain and injury. Yeah, we can see how someone like that might inspire superstition-laden rumors.
Check out the first part of CD Projekt's "Flashback" trailer below. Part 1 ends with Geralt, so we're thinking the second half will revolve around the Witcher protagonist.
