With The Witcher 2 :Assassin’s of Kings “Enhanced Edition” (wow that’s a mouth full) coming out on April 17th, I can’t help but think of the reasons why I seem to feel a lot of loyalty towards CD Projekt Red. Aside from the fact that I loved everything about The Witcher 2, I believe that the fact that the developer continues to show so much good will towards it’s customers is what inspires this loyalty.
While many companies try to fight piracy using ineffective methods, CD Projekt Red announce that they will never again use DRM. The reason they state being that they feel that it doesn’t protect the game and causes complications for legitimate users. I also love that when patching The Witcher 2 they added an arena mode, and with the release of the enhanced edition they are adding more cinematics, locations, characters and quests to the game (around 4 hours of content). Notice that they’re not calling it DLC and charging people for it. quite nice right?
Apparently CD Projekt Red are going to give away “a legendary PC RPG” for free on GOG.com tomorrow, which is also when they’re having their spring conference. From what I understood from this article, this will be available for anyone who already owns The Witcher 2 on PC or anyone who buys it in the future. I’ll update tomorrow when I know more.
Thumbs up CD Projekt Red for being good to their fans. For now check out this cool video, and go get the game 🙂 I’m out!
