The Witcher Extravaganza Begins Today at GOG.com

Warsaw , Poland . May 10, 2011 - GOG.com ( http://www.gog.com), the best place on the Internet to fulfill the need for DRM-free PC classics, has put The Witcher: Enhanced Edition Director’s Cut up for sale and offers pre-download of 95% of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Digital Premium Edition for those who purchase the game.

As announced during CD Projekt Days 2011 Spring Conference, The Witcher: Enhanced Edition Director’s Cut is available until May 24th with a special 50% discount, and costs only $4.99! For those who haven’t heard about the game, it’s an action RPG based on books by Polish fantasy author Andrzej Sapkowski where the player takes the role of Geralt - a powerful monster slayer. GOG.com’s version of the game comes with loads of additional content including game guide, soundtracks, artbook and a 2011-2012 calendar featuring the sexiest women from the game.

Also today, GOG.com started accepting pre-payments for the highly anticipated second part of Geralt’s adventures, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Digital Premium Edition. Everyone who pre-ordered the game on GOG.com can now finalize their purchase and--only on GOG.com--pre-download 95% of the game. This will guarantee that when the game is released on May 17th, they can download the remaining part and play instantly. As the game is DRM-free via GOG.com there’s no need to activate the game, it’s as easy as download, install and play! While all future patches for The Witcher 2 will be distributed via the convenient and easy to use launcher which requires one-time registration, GOG.com will be offering an updated master build of the game in several months for users who do not care to register their copy.

Further, in light of GOG.com’s update to their privacy policy yesterday, users who have been experiencing problems registering the correct region for their game purchase will be able to update their location in their account settings page to update their preorder with the correct offer for the region that they select. They can update this by going to”My Account” and clicking on“Account&Settings.”

GOG.com will be charging regional customers varying amounts for the game, as seen in the below chart. GOG.com will be charging all customers in USD equivalents to the game’s price in their local currency, and will be offering the fair price package credits back in dollars as well.
