The President, a self-professed gaming novice, probably doesn’t have a lot of time to spend behind a keyboard and mouse defeating the likes of bandits, witches and demons, yet during a trip to Poland, President Obama met up with the Prime Minister to discuss something rather important: The Witcher.
“The last time I was here, Donald [Tusk, Poland’s Prime Minister] gave me a gift, the video game developed here in Poland that’s won fans the world over, The Witcher,” Obama said. “I confess, I’m not very good at video games, but I’ve been told that it is a great example of Poland’s place in the new global economy. And it’s a tribute to the talents and work ethic of the Polish people as well as the wise stewardship of Polish leaders like Prime Minister Tusk.”
The Witcher originally came out in 2007 to awesome reviews and fanfare. The sequel, Assassin’s of Kings was released in 2011 and was loved by fans for its highly addicting combat system. At the rate that the President enjoys his video games, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, which is scheduled for a February 2015 release window, will be upon us and President Obama will have quite the backlog.
Stay tuned for more Witcher news as E3 lurks around the corner.
