Chances are that you’ve at least heard of the immensely successful Witcher series by now. The hit series developed by CD Projekt skyrocketed with the release of its first instalment, simply titled ‘The Witcher’. After the release of the game in 2007, the very next year saw the release of an upgraded version of the game titled ‘The Enhanced Version’, which boasted over 200 new animations, more NPC models and a much bigger array of dialogue, which included some corrections in international versions of the game.
Furthermore, the new version completely redesigned the inventory system and improved stability of the game, which subsequently led to loading times being reduced by 80%. It was an improvement over the original in every single way, and for many it is considered the quintessential version of the game that started such a phenomenon in the gaming world. Well, now, you can grab this outstanding game at absolutely no cost on the PC.
However, while it is true that the actual download of the game is free, there are some things you have to do before it becomes accessible. You have to download Gwent: The Witcher Card Game, a free to play collectible card game. In addition, you must be subscribed to the GOG.com newsletter (not to worry; you can unsubscribe at any time). After you’ve installed it and subscribed to the newsletter, follow this link to download the game.
The ‘Enhanced Edition’, in addition to the above mentioned improvements to the original game, also has two new adventure modes to play through for some new experiences aside from the same story as the original game. The game has received critical acclaim and numerous positive reviews from various video game publications. In 2010, it had the honour of being included in an esteemed list of video games that must be played in one’s lifetime, along with titles such as The Legend of Zelda, Final Fantasy, Super Mario and many more.
