Massive 'Witcher' Sale On GOG Discounts The Entire Franchise (Including 'Witcher 3' DLC)
CD Projekt Red's Witcher franchise hit it big with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, but that doesn't mean the previous two games in the series aren't great, too. If you've been wanting to try out the previous games in the series, waiting to pick up The Witcher 3 or all of the above, you won't likely find a better deal than the one that is currently going on over at GoG.com.
The the entire franchise is heavily discounted over on the CD Projekt Red-owned GoG.com, including The Witcher 3's DLC. Gamers can snag the enhanced edition of the first game in the series, simply titled The Witcher, for a mere $1.49, an 85 percent discount off its $9.99 regular price. It's a similar scenario with The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings – Enhanced Edition. Players can pick up the critically-acclaimed sequel for $2.99, 85 percent off its regular $19.99 price. Even The Witcher Adventure Game, a board game spin-off of the series, is discounted, currently on sale for $1.49.
Those waiting to pick up The Witcher 3 at a discount need not wait any longer, either. The game is currently 50 percent off for a price of $24.99. Gamers can pick up the game and the expansion pass for $49.99, a 33 percent discount off its regular $74.99 price tag. Each individual expansion is currently discounted 10 percent, with Hearts of Stone on sale for $8.99 and the game's upcoming Blood and Wine expansion discounted to $17.99.
Why exactly CD Projekt Red is having the sale now is unclear, but May 19 is the one-year anniversary of The Witcher 3. With that in mind, coupled with the upcoming release of Blood and Wine, which is set to be the franchise's farewell DLC, it seems to makes sense for the developer to throw a giant sale like this. The sale will be going on for the next two weeks, until June 1. If you want to save the 10 percent on Blood and Wine, however, you'll have to buy it prior to the expansion's May 31 release date.
Blood and Wine will be the final piece of content for The Witcher 3. Luckily, what we've seen so far of the expansion looks fantastic. CD Projekt Red says the expansion will feature a number of visual improvements not seen in the core game, so players should have plenty to look forward to come May 31.
