In 2015, CD Projekt Red released an RPG that would change the landscape, raising all future expectations of what players should expect from an open-world, role-playing experience. The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt can join your PC library today for a low price thanks to a sale over at GOG.
The game of the year edition, which comes complete with both expansions, is on sale for only $20, which is a historical low for the game. The sale is meant to mark the 10-year anniversary of The Witcher games, and the past two titles in the series are also on sale. Previously, the lowest price The Witcher 3 saw was $25 via Humble Bundle, according to data gathered by Is There Any Deal. The game normally sells for $50. It’s worth noting that CD Projekt owns GOG, where the deal initially appeared.
The sale on The Witcher series expires on October 25. Meanwhile, other RPG series will be on sale on GOG, such as Fallout, The Elder Scrolls, and Risen. Fallout and Fallout 2 are available at $5 apiece, while Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition and Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate Edition—both come with all their DLC—will cost you $12 each. The Elder Scrolls: Morrowind and Oblivion are on sale for $9 and $12, respectively. Note that the most recent titles from Bethesda’s two mentioned franchises aren’t included in the deal. The Risen series has prices cut by 75-80%. These games will stay at their lower prices until October 23.
The Witcher 3 is a lengthy, meaty game starring Geralt of Rivia, a witcher who takes contracts to slay monsters as he searches for Ciri, who can best be described as his adopted daughter. Oh, there’s also a lot of political plotting and backstabbing between leaders in the midst of a war that’s ravaging the land. The game is known for being a very polished experience, and it’s filled to the brim with intriguing dialogue, noteworthy side quests, and places to see.
In our review of the game, we gave it a 10, calling it a new benchmark for RPGs and “one of those games that both meets expectations in most areas and surpasses it in some, leaving behind one of those games that will have a huge impact on all of gaming.” We had similarly high praise for expansions Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine.
