Preorder The Witcher 2 on GOG.com
By on November 18th, 2010

A DRM-free, AAA, new title on GOG.com? Yes! We decided to promote this highly-anticipated RPG by our sister company CD Projekt RED as a one time special.

At their web conference, the people over at CD Projekt decided to show their loyalists some love in a very unique way. It was almost as if the monks of GOG conferred with each other and decided, in perfect Monty Python style, and now for something completely different.

In the conference the release date was announced as May 17th 2011, and the contents of the Collector’s and Premium editions of the game, as well as some preorder details. One of these preorder details was that the game could be purchased from their sister project: GOG.com, the premiere DRM-free digital distribution service.

Although the preorder page at GOG is as of now showing a 404, the tentative details that emerged from their post are that it would feature a 10% discount as well as a free download of any one of the premiere RPGs in GOG’s catalog. The preorder will also entail instant access to some bonus contents of the game.

Also, it seems like you do not have to pay upfront for the preorder how that would work out is still in the dark because of the missing page.

For me, this is the sweetest deal imaginable and I’d jump as soon as I could. Hopefully the missing page will be reinstated soon!

Update: They have taken down the announcement page as well. Stay tuned for further updates!
