If you’ve never played CD PROJEKT RED’s original Witcher game, you’ll want to head on over to GOG right now. The DRM-free storefront is offering free copies of the 2007 classic, which comes bundled with a ton of goodies ranging from soundtracks to wallpapers.
“Your name is Geralt of Rivia and you are a witcher, that means you kill monsters for a living,” reads the official game description. “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.”
- Arguably one of the best RPGs ever made, with a mature, non-linear story and a challenging combat system
- Beautiful graphics and an enchanting soundtrack create a very unique dark fantasy atmosphere
- The Witcher’s universe is created by Andrzej Sapkowski – bestselling fantasy author
