CD Projekt RED, announce the beta version of their development kit, called REDKit. This modding toolset uses the studio’s in-house REDengine game engine, which was specially designed to create The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings and the studio’s upcoming RPG titles.
The REDkit toolset will be available in the first half of 2013 for free and to everyone who owns a copy of The Witcher 2. Currently, the REDkit is in the Closed Beta phase. During the conference, over 100 modding teams selected from a pool of over 600 squads were given access to it. These modders will assist in the development and perfection of the tools and the game engine itself.
REDkit is a unique development tool that allows any player to create a “living world” with the use of advanced landscape design tools, 24-hour day-and-night-cycle simulations and thousands of ready-made assets used in The Witcher 2. It also makes it possible to modify the original game, a great opportunity for the modding community.
