New, Free DLC Included in Massive 1.3 Update for The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings

20-Jul-2011 | News-Press Release

July 20 – Warsaw, Poland. CD Projekt RED has released the huge 1.3 Update for The Witcher 2, bringing with it the free “A Sackful of Fluff” DLC and a long list of improvements for the RPG of the Year candidate. The update includes a plethora of fan-requested improvements, including difficulty adjustments for the game’s Prologue, support for a variety of aspect ratios and a host of other gameplay tweaks and fixes. The Witcher 2 1.3 Update is available at and directly through digital distributors like, Steam, Direct2Drive and others.

 “A Sackful of Fluff” is a new quest in Chapter 2 of the game. To start the quest, players must visit the eccentric Elthon, who inhabits a solitary hut near the quarry outside Vergen. The quest will prove most rewarding to those who demonstrate patience.

 Key improvements in the 1.3 Update include:

·         Game now supports 4:3, 5:4, and 16:10 aspect ratios.

·         Item storage has been added. Players can now store items from their Inventory at inns. To leave items in storage or collect previously stored items, talk to innkeepers.

·         A ‘Junk’ panel has been added to the Inventory to provide greater clarity in item classification.

·         A new menu option has been added under ‘Extras’ – this enables players to view in-game animated sequences (flashbacks, memory flashes, dreams stolen by harpies) outside of the game.

·         ‘Dragon’ section of Prologue does not become available until after all assault-related sections have been completed, thereby softening the difficulty curve at the start of the game.
