The Witcher 2 DLC: Troll Trouble; Bridge Sold Separately, Three Billy Goats Gruff Not Included

Saviour of Man, Vanquisher of Evil…Repairer of Bridges

Sure, CD Projekt RED’s The Witcher 2 has only been out for two days, but the first piece of DLC is already available.

Rather than being an expansive add-on, this DLC, titled Troll Trouble, is a single quest to add on to your gaming experience. In this quest, Geralt is engaged by villagers to take care of a bothersome drunken troll that’s been giving the townspeople grief, and causing them to not be able to use the bridge that he is in charge of. In other words, a slightly more mundane task, perfect for a short gaming stint and a few experience points.

While the content of the DLC quest isn’t going to move worlds or tear anyone away from the game’s main storyline so soon, one important fact makes it more juicy: it’s free! The only stipulation for gamers getting this free content is to have a registered game, or register their copy if they haven’t done so yet. The DLC will then be available to download in the launcher menu.

Seems like a small price to pay for an extra quest, and there seem to be more of these little bonuses releasing in the future. So register that sucker already! Check out a preview video of Troll Trouble here.

    This is actually on the first notice board in the game. Why anyone would want even more broken-ass Witcher 2 combat is beyond me, though.

      Just because you have no idea how to fight properly doesn’t mean the combat is bad. It’s an excellent combat system that encourages strategy, quick thinking, and planning ahead of time/using every tool available to you, instead of trying to just button match. Stop sucking and start thinking and you’ll have a much better time.

    Bats, you are completely correct.

    When I first started playing I was surprised at how many times I had to reload after a death. Took me a little while to realize the game had much more depth to the combat system then what I’m used to in a game like this.

    Chad, you’re a fool. One of those people who knock something simply because they aren’t good at it. Go play sims.

      The controls are unresponsive and unintuitive. Sorry I’m so average. I’m not used to playing action games on the PC, I’m more of the RPG type.

        I think combat is exelent. Mix of Deamon Souls and Batman AA is very fun to play.

        Also i disagree that controls are clunky. I’m playing on hard from start and if controls would be bad i would stop playing because i die very offen. But my death is only mine wrong step attack etc not because there is something wrong with combat.

        Fighting with mob is insta death and you should run and try to fight one on one or try some bombs and traps.

    I’ve managed to spend a little more time with it, and once you fill out a little bit more of the leveling grids it does get more fun. However, I still take issue with the fact that the tutorial isn’t very well implemented, and there’s the incongruency where Geralt could cut down a whole group of enemies in the original and in the sequel he’s turned into a pincushion.
    Still, even before I got used to the combat there was a lot to like about the game.
