Side and The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings

For immediate release (as per DL)

The Witcher 2 has launched to great critical acclaim and Side is proud to have carried out all English voice production on the project.

The second instalment in the RPG saga features an engrossing, mature storyline, delivered through non-linear game narration. To help bring this story to life Side cast and recorded 40 actors delivering over 20,000 lines of dialogue,?with voice direction carried out by Kate Saxon.

Borys Pugacz-Muraszkiewicz, senior writer on the game said;

“You’re not going to hear any big name actors when playing the English version of The Witcher 2. You will, however, hear a broad range of convincing characterizations and accents, natural, believable, emotionally committed performances adorned with just the right amount of flair and panache– in brief, acting excellence. And that we owe to the roster of talent Side placed at our disposal.”
