The Witcher is free, but don't let that distract you from Cyberpunk


Another GOG freebie

Bold promotional move from CD Projekt Red. The Polish publisher is giving away the original Witcher: Enhanced Edition Director's Cut on GOG in the days leading up to the release of Cyberpunk 2077.

Imagine a world where some PC players who are eagerly awaiting Cyberpunk take advantage of this and check out The Witcher for the first time. They're hooked. After this, it's right on to Witcher 2. Then, they get to experience the magic of Witcher 3. Before long, they do not care or remember Cyberpunk. It's all Witcher all the time, baby.

A stretch, maybe. A video game from 2007 probably won't steal too much of the spotlight from the most highly anticipated video game since Red Dead Redemption 2. But if it does, CD Projekt has no one to blame but itself. 

Anyway, claim your free copy of The Witcher by heading over to the GOG Galaxy app, hit the giveaway banner, and agree to receive promotional emails. After that, you'll have a beefy RPG in your library. Just make sure to not get distracted and forget that Cyberpunk exists.
