This week, everyone is talking about Cyberpunk 2077, a game that has been hyped for as early as 2013. But wind down the clock a little, and it’s easy to remember just how far developer CD Projekt Red has come, starting with a little game called The Witcher in 2007.
And 13 years later, The Witcher: Enhanced Edition Director’s Cut is free to keep on GOG Galaxy – forever, might we add.
To claim the game on their PCs, all one needs to download and install the GOG Galaxy client, then head under the “Recent” tab. If you don’t already own the game, there will be a giveaway banner at the top of the game’s store page. Click it, and voila! you can explore The Continent as it was 13 years ago.
While The Witcher: Enhanced Edition Director’s Cut actually retails for a marginal price on both GOG and on Steam, this just a nice nod to how far the developer has come, especially when it put out the masterpiece that is The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt back in 2015, and now moving on to greener (darker) pastures in Cyberpunk 2077.
For the past 13 years, we’ve been tossing our coins to the White Wolf. This time, CDPR is tossing him right to us. It doesn’t get any better than that.
Marion has a serious RPG addiction. Sometimes it bleeds into real life; he forgets to sleep because he thinks he has a Witcher’s body clock. Forgive him in advance if he suddenly blurts out terms such as “Mind Flayer” and “Magic Missile”, because never once does he stop thinking about his next Dungeons & Dragons game.
