CD Projekt RED has set its sights on the audience Bethesda coralled with Skyrim, first becoming one of the only competing video game companies to allow outright ports of many of their Witcher designs into Skyrim mods. As a player myself, I felt this was a crafty move, showing off some of the great designs from the Witcher series and eventually winning new players to their franchise.
Next, they started a private beta last year for REDkit, an official set of tools that will allow modders to customize their game, similar to Skyrim's own Creation Kit. Finally, they stepped up with a final tease to pull RPG fans in, announcing that Witcher 3 would be an open world RPG, offering over 50+ hours of main quest and a world 30% larger than Skyrim. While Witcher 3 is still a ways from launch, the REDkit is now out out of testing and has been released to the masses.
So, while you wait for Witcher 3, the REDkit will allow you to make the most out of Witcher 2. Visit the REDkit website to share files, study the wiki and more.

Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea. Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California. When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead. Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim. If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: www.jeremyshane.info for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
