The Good Old Games (GOG.com) website has announced that it will soon be selling the Witcher 2 Digital Premium Edition as a PC download without any DRM attached. Managing Director of Guillaume Rambourg explains that DRM is not a great way to protect games from piracy and thinks that DRM effects the gaming experience in a negative way.
GOG are able to provide the DRM free version due to it being a sister company of the CD Projekt RED, the development house behind The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings.
The Witcher 2 Digital Premium Edition is now available to pre-order from GOG for free, and pre-ordering doesn’t compel you to purchase it once officially released on the GOG site. However it will provide you with a password to enter the UStream channel to watch a live Q&A with CD Projekt RED Senior Producer Tomasz Gop and GOG’s head of marketing & PR Trevor Longino.
