After The Witcher
launched in October of '07, I'll admit that I wasn't expecting us -- about a year and a half later -- still hearing about updates and new editions. That may be par for course on games with a strong multiplayer element, but not single-player RPGs that don't have a strict calendar of downloadable content or expansions.
But The Witcher
just keeps trucking along, and developer CD Projekt RED just announced that The Witcher: Enhanced Edition
1.5 is coming soon. Details are fairly non-existent, but there's a line in the press release hinting at a "Director's Cut" for North American gamers. I don't want to be hasty
in my estimation as to what a Director's Cut would entail, but The Witcher
never shied away from its sexual innuendo. If you call "innuendo" the act of collecting dirty little cards picturing the women you've bedded.
The Witcher Version 1.5 Coming Soon!
CD Projekt RED is pleased to announce the upcoming release of The Witcher: Enhanced Edition 1.5!
The Witcher: Enhanced Edition 1.5 is the newest version of the game, including all bonus content from The Witcher: Enhanced Edition and five additional fan-made adventures. Most importantly, The Witcher: Enhanced Edition 1.5 is completely DRM-free! Playing The Witcher will be even more fun without any form of annoying copy protection. Moreover, the 1.5 version of The Witcher will remove the disc check, allowing you to play the game without the DVD in the drive.
All available versions of the game will be upgraded to 1.5, including the forthcoming The Witcher: Enhanced Edition Director’s Cut for North American gamers.
As usual the patch containing the additional content will be available to download for free from our website for all registered The Witcher and The Witcher: Enhanced Edition owners!
More detailed information will be released on our website (http://www.thewitcher.com) as well as on our Press Centre (http://press.cdprojektred.com) in the coming weeks.
