The original The Witcher is arguably one of the best RPGs ever created, surpassed only by a few who came out much later, including The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. It was the game that introduced many players to the world created by Andrzej Sapkowski in his bestselling fantasy books and it is what truly put CD Projekt Red on the map if you ask me. Now, you can grab the original The Witcher for free and everyone who hasn’t played it definitely should.
So to get The Witcher for free, you will need to jump through some hoops, but it is well worth it as it is the Enhanced Edition. What you need to do is head on over to this link on GOG.com and claim The Witcher: Enhanced Edition as well as a free Gwent Card Keg.
You might get an error which states you are not subscribed yet. Basically, what you need to do is first create a GOG.com account and add Gwent to your library. Then, download the GOG Galaxy launcher and start installing Gwent (the install doesn’t have to finish). Then, you can head back to the link and claim The Witcher for free.
This is part of the Gwent welcome bonus and there is no specific time limit on this freebie, so grab it while you can. Trust me, it is well worth the little bit of extra effort and took me only 2 minutes to go through it all this morning. After you’ve claimed The Witcher for free, it is yours to keep and play at your leisure. If you really need more convincing to get one of the best RPGs of all time for free, then check out a description and trailer below.
About The Witcher
[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”#33e0ff” class=”” size=”25″] 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. Set in a dark fantasy world with a unique medieval, yet somewhat modern, feel to it, The Witcher isn’t just another fantasy RPG. With a deep story, complex characters, and tough choices that actually matter, this game will keep you glued to your monitor for days. [/perfectpullquote]
