'The Witcher' is Free to Download Right Now on PC

'The Witcher' is free to download right now on PC through, CD Projekt Red's own digital distribution platform for video games.

Keep in mind that, there wouldn't be a The Witcher 3 if there wasn't a The Witcher 2, and that's only conditional on the existence of a The Witcher. It's not like Star Wars where it starts halfway through the story, or like Kingdom Hearts where- no, I don't think I'll do that to our brains this early on a Monday. Moving on, the very first The Witcher game is being given away on, in all of its crispy and crunchy goodness from the early 2000s.

Also, it's the Enhanced Edition that's on offer, which added more than 200 new animations and new NPC models to the original version, as well as a lick of paint and slashed loading times by approximately 80%. It might be less impressive now, in 2020, with our souped up laptops and desktops, but it's about the experience. 

In order to nab it, you'll need a GOG Galaxy account, and after installing the launcher and logging in, there will be an advert in the "Recent" section. Then, sign up for email updates from, and then the game will be waiting there in your library.

In other news, if you pre-order Cyberpunk 2077 on before December 10th, you'll get a 30% discount on official merchandise.
