COUNCIL CHRONICLE – Still waiting for CD Projekt Red to announce Cyberpunk 2077’s launch date? Well, in the meantime, have a go at The Witcher Enhanced Edition, the game that marked Geralt of Rivia’s long-lived saga. And to sweeten the pot, Red’s game can be downloaded for free from Good Old Games’ official website. Here’s what you need to do to get your hands on the game.
The Witcher Enhanced Edition Considered a Milestone in Open-World RPG Genre
After all the positive reviews, not much could be said about the first installment in The Witcher series – immersive, epic, brooding, The Witcher Enhanced Edition continues to fascinate even after a decade.
And now, the game that paved the way for the award-winning and critically-acclaimed Wild Hunt can be played or replayed for free on GOG.
As part of their summer sale, GOG has announced tons of giveaways; The Witcher Enhanced Edition is one of the many.
To get your hands on a digital copy of the game, start by creating a GOG account. If you already have a GOG account, you’ll need to download GWENT The Witcher Card Game. The good news is that GWENT is also free to download. After adding the game to your library, you will receive a redeeming code which you can use to add The Witcher 1 to your game library.
A word of warning before you proceed – Witcher 1 is not Witcher 3! What you see in the third game of the series is the results of many years of work and study. The first game could be seen as unpolished or even crude, but the immersion factor is way beyond anything you could get from a 2007 game.
Regarding game mechanics, combat, in particular, Witcher 1 is closer to Knights of the Old Republic duology than to the Wild Hunt. Have fun, folks!
