CD Projekt RED has sent over some shots of The Witcher 2, and they’re on fire. Literally.

Check out the shots below and salivate.

CD Projekt has said the game will contain many different endings, 16 being just one number thrown out there.

“We like to say we have 16 states of the world that you have at the end of The Witcher 2,” junior designer Jan Bartkowicz told Eurogamer. “It’s not like 16 different cut-scenes. The last chapter, there is a big summary of what you have accomplished in the game. You will get that. You will see results of some early choices from hours of gameplay past.

“There are of course two or three huge differences. But there is a bunch of… I don’t like to call them small because sometimes there is a country on the map and sometimes this country is not on the map. But in the scale of The Witcher, sometimes these are the smaller consequences.

“In The Witcher 2, political things are more important than they were in the first one. It’s still action-packed and there is the story of Geralt, but it’s a broader game. We go to a lot of different places. We see kingdoms clashing. It’s more epic in scale. If it is that epic and the game is non-linear, then we thought, these choices have to affect how these kingdoms clash.”

The game is slated for release on May 17 and there are loads of different options for the game available in either physical or digital form.
