Good Old Games to sell The Witcher 2

UPDATE: pre-order now, pay later.

Update: CD Projekt has made the news official and there are a couple of extra points to make.

The first is that pre-ordering The Witcher 2 on GOG.com costs nothing. You won't have to pay until the game is available in May 2011 - there's even a 10 per cent discount on the price.

The second point is that The Witcher 2 on GOG.com gifts a free game from a choice of five: Gothic 2 Gold, Realms of Arkania 1+2, Realms of Arkania 3, Divine Divinity or Beyond Divinity.

Original story: Polish company CD Projekt will break the Good Old Games mould by selling The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings there next May, Eurogamer can exclusively reveal.

Until now, Good Old Games had focused on adapting retro titles for today's operating systems.

But sources have told us that on 17th May, The Witcher 2 will be found there. What's more, the gritty action RPG will be completely DRM-free.

The news is expected to be made official this evening at a CD Project press conference.

Good Old Games and The Witcher 2 are of course both made by CD Projekt. Perhaps convergence was inevitable.

The PC version of The Witcher 2 has been swaggering around for months, gaining followers and acclaim - it looks very good. But what's happened to our console adaptations? That's what we're hoping to find out at the press conference this evening. We've sent news editor Wesley Yin-Poole packing to Poland to find out.

CD Projekt brought The Witcher 2 to Eurogamer Expo 2010 in London at the start of October. We videoed The Witcher 2 presentation for you.
