"Forgotten Land" by Riverside. A new song promoting The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings.
CD Projekt RED is proud to announce a collaboration with the internationally known Polish band Riverside. The group's song "Forgotten Land" will help to promote the eagerly awaited RPG, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, which will be in stores on May 17.
The song will be available on Riverside's upcoming Ep. "Memories in my Head" and will also be featured on the band's 10th Anniversary Europe Tour (details here).
"Quite a few of our songs are inspired by RPGs. In this case, I imagined an old land that used to be ruled by kings who became too proud of themselves. Bad things started happening to them and their kingdoms. Who knows, they may even have been assassinated..." says Mariusz Duda, frontman of Riverside.
A slideshow presentation is available for viewing here, and an official video clip based on materials from the game is aimed for release around end of May.
