CD Projekt Invites Modders to Join in Witcher 2 Mod Beta

CD Projekt RED is preparing to release REDkit, its RED Engine tools that will allow players to start modding The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. That’s awesome.

If you’re interested in getting in on the modding sooner rather than later, you should pop over to thewitcher.com/redkit. There, you can sign up for the REDkit closed beta from now until Sept. 30 and will give players earlier access to the tools.

CD Projekt says it’s looking for modders to provide feedback on the tools before their official release, so if you’re excited about getting them, you should go help out.

Whenever they do W3, they need to have these tools out within the first few months.

Look at the way Skyrim has taken advantage of Steam Workshop. Getting near a year old and still one of the most played games.

Considering that CDPR has added lots of free DLC, I won’t complain that they were slow on releasing a mod kit. A lot of devs don’t even release such kits, so I won’t gripe about it.

Worth noting also that they’ve had other things to do other than release tools, like port the game to Xbox 360 and make additional content themselves, as R.J. noted. It’s important to note, as other developers have said, that releasing tools isn’t easy. It’s basically like creating a second smaller game and releasing that, and it’s time consuming. CDP’s even releasing their tools in beta, which should give you an idea of how involved the process is — they need people to use them and test them out before they release them. So I’m with R.J. — that they’re getting released is a great thing, even if it has taken a while.
