DRM removed, UGC in Witcher patch

Five player-created adventures for the RPG.

Polish developer CD Projekt has patched its cult low-fantasy RPG The Witcher to version 1.5, removing the game's DRM security protection and adding five bonus adventures created by players.

As well as removing copy security measures, you'll now be able to play The Witcher without the disc in the drive of your machine.

The five community quests - Deceits, Blight of the Bogs, Wraiths of Quiet Hamlet, The Wedding, and Merry Witchmas - were created with the D'jinni adventure editor first released last year.

The Witcher was due to get a console version later this year, but Rise of the White Wolf was put on hold after CD Projekt felt it wouldn't be able to meet its quality standards on time.

It's still very much worth a look on PC though - read our review of the enhanced edition to find out why.
