The Witcher: Enhanced Edition Is Free Today Only
The first game in the Witcher franchise is free to claim, but only for a limited amount of time.
With Cyberpunk 2077 on the way, GOG and developer CD Projekt Red have been offering a lot of great deals on the Witcher franchise lately, and the latest offer lets you claim the very first game in the Witcher franchise at no cost. Until 3 PM PT / 6 PM ET today, The Witcher: Enhanced Edition Director's Cut is free to claim on GOG's homepage. All you have to do is click the button that says "Get it free," and it'll be added to your GOG account immediately.
Like all GOG titles, this is a DRM-free copy, so no need to redeem it anywhere--you'll be able to download the game and start playing right away.
Released in 2007 by CD Projekt Red, The Witcher takes place after the events of book series and once again follows the adventures of Geralt of Rivia, who wakes up with amnesia and must decide with whom to ally himself. The game features different paths based on who Geralt decides to support, which in turn affects the game's overall storyline. Your actions throughout the game will have consequences that appear much later on.
The game earned an 8.5 out of 10 in GameSpot's The Witcher review for its fantastic story, innovative combat mechanics, and dark, foreboding world that feels lived in.
"Polish developer CD Projekt has crafted one of those landmark games that moves the goalposts for everybody, a truly grown-up take on swords and sorcery that breaks just about every fantasy tradition in the book," wrote critic Brett Todd. "Once you experience a grimy medieval world so realistic that you can practically smell it, quests that reject simplistic good and evil for ambiguous 'decisions and consequences,' and, yes, newfangled battle mechanics that add welcome twists to left-click scrapping, you'll find it awfully hard to go back to the usual D&D rip-off."
