Want to know the roots of the mysterious white-haired monster slayer, Geralt? The Witcher: Enhanced Edition is running for completely free over on GOG (well, almost completely.) To claim your free copy, you’ll need to download Gwent (free download) and subscribe to the GOG newsletter. Your account will then be credited with a copy of The Witcher.
The free download comes as a promotion for the 10th anniversary of the studio behind the massively successful franchise, CD Projekt Red – who have come from humble beginnings to create arguably on the best single-player RPGs.
Here’s what to expect from the game if you hit download:
‘Your name is Geralt of Rivia and you are a witcher, that means you kill monsters for a living. You were given special training to be the best at what you do and your body has been enhanced with potent elixirs to help you do it.
Suffering from amnesia you remember nothing of your past. Kaer Morhen, the last remaining keep of the witchers, was attacked by a mysterious organization, just as you were starting to lick your wounds there. The battle is won but the secret recipe for the mutagen, a substance required to create more of your kind, has been stolen. The surviving witchers set out to find and reclaim it and punish everyone involved. Memory loss or not, you are one of them.’
