The Witcher franchise of games follows the main character Geralt through his story as a Witcher. The original title was released in 2007, and quickly became a highly popular game amongst RPG gamers. There were some controversies with it, mainly from the sex cards, but that might also have been part of the reason it did so well.
The second installment to the series was released in 2011, and is titled “The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings." The storyline picks up right after the first game, and the graphics, and pretty much everything else, were greatly improved.
These guides will help you make your way through both of the games in the series. If you need to quickly access these again as you play (which you most likely will), I suggest adding them to your favorites or bookmarking them in some way. Enjoy, and have fun playing the series – it is a truly classic game that can be enjoyed for years to come.
The original game, The Witcher, sets the story for the main character Geralt. It takes place in an odd somewhat medieval fantasy setting, and the player is able to make choices that will affect how the rest of the story is told (this also happens in The Witcher 2). If you ever find yourself stuck, or wondering what choices you have in a situation, then the following guides will help you make your way through the main quests and side storylines.

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings
The second installment to the game can be played without playing the first game, but if at all possible, I do suggest playing the original game first. The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings does a nice job setting up the game so you know what has happened, as well as get a glimpse into what is to come. The following guides will help you make your way through the main quests and side storylines.
