Modding seems to be the way of the PC gaming future and CD Projekt RED wants to get in on it. The Witcher 2 is arguably one of the best looking games on the market today graphically, and also arguably, one of the best RPGs in a long time.
Now, or soon anyway, it seems that there will be a modding community surrounding the game. CD Projekt RED has said that modders will be able to create, with what they call REDkit, “new, non-linear adventures, great looking locations and much more.”
Since you can create new locations, there will be some kind of terrain and object placement function. And, you will be able to create your own stories and quests it seems, so you can probably create/name units etc. This all probably comes at the price of no voice acting though, unless they have just a bank of phrases for you to choose from, which would be very limiting.
This year’s Gamescom takes place on August 15-19. Expect a lot more information about REDkit as well as other games soon.
