Your name is Geralt of Rivia and you are a witcher, that means you kill monsters for a living. 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


How to get this game for free:
Unfortunately, there are a few steps to go through. It involves adding another (less popular) free game to your GOG library before you can claim The Witcher: Enhanced Edition for free. Ugh, I know.

  1. Log into or register for the GOG website here: https://www.gog.com/

  2. Go to this page: https://www.gog.com/game/gwent_the_witcher_card_game. Do not click the button to get the game for free, this will download it immediately and may not add it to your GOG library. Instead:
    (i) Scroll down to the DLC section of the page. Then add the free DLC to your checkout basket.
    (ii) Now go to the checkout. Below your order summary is a section labelled “You Might Also Like”. The game “GWENT: The Witcher Card Game” should be there, click the green “Free” button to add it to your order.
    (iii) Now click “Pay for your order now.” Don’t worry, it’s free. This will add it to your library correctly instead of instantly downloading it.

Now that we’ve gotten over that ridiculously-long hurdle, you can grab the free game that you really want.

  1. Now go here: https://www.gog.com/gwent-welcome-bonus

  2. Click the Subscribe & Claim button. After a short load, click the “Get It Free” button.

  3. You will be redirected to a store page. Wait a few seconds and then a 100% discount will be applied to the page for you. Click “Add to cart” once the discount has been applied to the page. Then go to the checkout.

  4. Then finally click “Pay for your order now” - for which of course you’ll be paying nothing. Done.


Sorry about the annoyingly long steps to get this game for free. Please direct all complaints to GOG. :slight_smile:

And enjoy the game.
