The Witcher 2: Enhanced Edition is available for download at 6pm CEST

I personally thought that VP was dying, their FB page, twitter account and homepage has been silent for a while but today this popped up on their twitter account:

You could see the gamesīprofile on Deliver2mac.com for a short period before it disappeared again, but I managed to grab the system requirements:

Minimum specs:
OS X version 10.7.5 or later.
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo
Memory: 4GB RAM
Graphics: GeForce GT 650M 512MB (on 1440x900, medium), Radeon HD 5770 1GB (on 1440x900, low)
Hard Drive: 25 GB free space on HDD


Recommended specs:
OS X version 10.7.5 or later.
Processor: Quad Core Intel
Memory: 8GB RAM
Graphics: GeForce GT 650M 1 GB (on 1440x900, medium), Radeon HD 6970M 1 GB (on 1920x1080, medium)
Hard Drive: 25 GB free space on HDD

The price will be $29.99, or at least that was what it was on deliver2mac.com before the link died.

Good news. I hope they will put the Mac version on Steam together with the Windows version.

I know the game is pretty heavy on the eye-candy, but those are some hardcore minimum specs as far as Mac gaming goes... I don't remember the Windows specs being so damn high. Is this a native port or is it wrapped?

Either way, I hope my AMD 6770M 1GB can run it properly.

P.S.: It's up on Steam, right now!

since The Witcher 1 on Mac was a Wineskin port, its worth asking the question... but They did say the Witcher 2 would be native.

Just got this game for like $11 on GoG... It runs pretty poorly on Mac Pro w/ GTX 680 @ 2560x1440p on 10.8.2, though is quite playable on Medium settings...Get the same performance in Windows on Ultra (minus Ubersampling) at roughly 50fps.... (I haven't checked playing @ 1080p but I imagine it plays far better). FWIW though there is some warning about NVIDIA continually perfecting drivers and it may not run up to par on 600 series for OS X in the system recommendations. I wonder how the 7970 fairs w/ the game in 10.8.3 beta since the 7000 series drivers have support.
