Here is the dialogue some lines from the beginning of the trailer come from (at 23:10).^^

thewarsend said:I wasn't talking about that. (Even though it was Andrzej Sapkowski who wrote that short story and it is as close to canon as it gets, i mean he is the autority on "what would Geralt do" right, and he didn't see him killing Adda) Subject was what would Geralt do based on his actions on the book. Geralt is not someone who would say "well i saved her once, but no second chances" or "well, i'm a witcher and normally i would stay natural, but now i feel like i will join this battle and butcher some elves and dwarves."
While book canon is an important part of the games, depending on the actions you take, you should be able to change it. You know, like butterfly effect. Do what Geralt would do and it happens exactly like book canon, do something stupid and everything changes.. ›››
Sapkowsi himself said it wasn't cannon.^^
But I see your point and I mostly agree. However there is a difference between (as it was said before) a hard fact described (an event) and a type of behavior left to interpretation.

thewarsend said:This is a ROLEPLAYING game and you play AS GERALT. You decide what says and does. In Witcher 1, you can kill Princess Adda (Adda the White) instead of saving her, but in the books she still lives.. (Geralt just wouldn't kill her.) So, facts are not set in stone. ›››
The short story in which Adda becomes queen of Temeria is non cannon.

pomor said:I cannot disagree more. While the decisions, like "what would canon Geralt do" are open to interpretation, and the game may be granted a significant leeway due to the gameplay, the facts, that are stated flatly in the books, must be set in stone. ›››
Yes, this is the difference I make too.
