The giveaway, as a part of GOG and Ars Technica partnership, allows everyone to get the game in the next 48 hours by acquiring the code and redeeming it on GOG. However, gamers have to create an account on Ars Technica, which also costs no money at all.

The Witcher: Enhanced Edition is the expanded version for the first installment of CD Projekt RED’s epic fantasy trilogy. Based on the novel series written by Andrzej Sapkowski, the game follows the journey of Geralt of Rivia – a mercernary hunter wielding special powers – in the lands of war-torn Temeria. The Witcher was praised for its distinctive gameplay with the integration of different camera views and combat styles, as well as a storyline with multiple choices affecting the overall consequences. After the first release in 2007, CD Project RED decided to develop an Enhanced Edition with additional improvements that reduced the load times by about 80%, as well as adding new content, such as more missions.
