CD Projekt has announced a slew of
Witcher promotions and giveaways designed to generate buzz for the
release of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition on both
Xbox 360 and PC.
The goodies were announced this week
during the studio's 2012 Spring Conference event. First, for the
non-console crowd, CD Projekt revealed that a version of Witcher 2's
Enhanced Edition will be ready for download on PC through GOG.com, and that it will be available for free to all owners of the
original Witcher 2. The PC version version will be available April
17, however fans are invited to begin downloading the bulk of the 10
GB patch starting April 11. In addition, GOG is sweetening the pot
with a no-charge, DRM-free digital copy.
As a gift to all fans, CD Projekt is
giving away 1000 advanced copies to players who plead their case over
at The Witcher 2 website by April 9. It will also be releasing a free
digital Witcher comic for iOS devices April 17. The app will star
Geralt and allow players to swing swords and de-blouse women using
touch screen controls. Classy.
Lastly, Mac fans now have a chance to
get in on the Witcher craze from the very beginning with the arrival
of the Witcher 1 Enhanced Edition on Steam. The Apple-friendly
version is currently selling for $9.99.
