Geralt of Rivia has been around for some time, appearing on PC ten years ago. Time has passed and we've been blessed with three incredible RPGs, not to mention what appears to be the foundations of a solid standalone card collectible game, based on Gwent. GOG has decided to celebrate this anniversary with a PC game sale.
The company is currently subtracting up to 85 percent from the team's most beloved RPGs. Not only are you able to save 60 percent on The Witcher 3 — and anywhere between 50 and 85 percent on all other things Witcher — but also Bethesda classics and The Risen series. Here's a quick rundown:
- Fallout series (excluding Fallout 4) and select Elder Scrolls titles (opens in new tab) — up to 50% off.
- The Witcher: Enhanced Edition (opens in new tab) — 85% off at just $1.49.
- The Witcher 2 (opens in new tab) — 85% at just $2.99.
- The Witcher 3 (opens in new tab) — 60% off at just $17.91.
- Risen series (opens in new tab) — up to 80% off.
The Witcher 3 expansions and other listings within the series can also be found at reduced prices (opens in new tab) (and on Steam). The Witcher games promotion will remain live until October 25, while other RPG deals will come to an end on October 23.
Geralt of Rivia, master of not only swords and magic, but words, women, and now sales.

Witcher 3 is 19 bucks at Steam, for those who like me dont really care about GOG. That said, competition is good, but I'd rather have all my games in as few as possible services, so I'd prefer to have it either on Steam or the Windows Store.
That's a perfectly valid reason to want to stick with Steam. For those in the same boat; the full promotion on Steam can be viewed here. I'll also add a link in the article.
Hi, Dean. We see you.
This is going to hurt my bank balance.
A bit of trivia: The original Witcher was built using a modified version of Neverwinter Night's engine (I guess it was NWN 2).
What is GOG?
GoG is a game sales platform similar to Steam. GoG stands for Good Old Games, and they initially sold a lot of older games that were updated to work on modern machines. They have since added a lot of modern games to their catalog. Their biggest claim to fame today is that none of their games have drm.
