You Can Now Get A Free Copy Of The Witcher -- But You Have To Download Gwent First

If you've never played the first installment of CD Projekt RED's The Witcher series and just really aren't sure about throwing cash at it at this point, GOG has a deal for you. For a limited time, you can download the fantasy game for free. The catch? You have to download GWENT too.

That doesn't seem like the worst deal in the world. After all, if you don't like GWENT, you don't have to play it.

For latecomers to the Witcher series, the first entry is definitely going to seem dated, but as some of the more hardcore Witcher fans I've known over the years tell me, it's still a very solid game. It just won't be as pretty. But... it's free.

If you'd like to snag a copy of the game while it is available, just head over to GOG and check it out.

I will never understand why this franchise gets so much praise as it does. Ive seen the first one played by my friend entirely to the end. And I own the second one and uninstalled it after the first boss. I found everything about the game below avarage.

The Witcher 1 was a great game. I loved it for the storyline.

Don't like series. Too railed. Even third one. Open world a lie. Pay attention. Rails. Camera wonky. Combat stale
