CD Projekt Red celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, and to celebrate its anniversary, GOG is giving away two packs of goodies (opens in a new tab) related to The Witcher and Cyberpunk 2077, which includes art, comics, soundtracks, videos, and more. You might already have some of these goodies, either from claiming them in previous giveaways or owning the games in question on GOG, but chances are you won’t have them all. There are several of them.
The Witcher Pack includes concert footage of The Witcher 3’s excellent score from a Krakow music festival, hi-res copies of art and art books, “emoji” renditions of characters like Geralt, Ciri, and Regis, and comics like Fox Children, which is hidden in the Thronebreaker Goodies Pack. Based on a story from Sapkowski’s book, Season of Storms, this is one of the best Witcher comics.
Meanwhile, the Cyberpunk 2077 Goodies Pack contains wallpapers, concept art, SteelBook Edition case art, and posters of in-game gang ads, mods, and graffiti. isn’t quite that many things, but it’s based on one game rather than three RPGs and a few card game spin-offs.
Note that this 20th anniversary is the anniversary of CD Projekt Red, the game development studio founded in 2002 when CD Projekt, the Polish retailer and publisher, acquired the rights to Witcher from Andrzej Sapkowski and decided to try his hand at all that video game making stuff. CD Projekt itself dates back to 1994, when founders Marcin Iwiński and Michał Kiciński, who were selling cracked copies of games on CDs at a market in Warsaw, decided to go legit. If you’re interested in the story, here’s how CD Projekt Red climbed to the top of the RPG mountain and then slipped.
CD Projekt Red’s latest release was another Witcher spin-off, roguelike deckbuilder Gwent: Rogue Mage, which is the most brutal Witcher game to date. As our own Lauren Aitken says, “One thing I’ve realized since playing Rogue Mage is that I’m not as good at Gwent as I thought I was. Although I understood the meta of certain maps, there are certain types of enemies that keep obliterating me, and as a PC Gamer Witcher aficionado, I’m not happy about that.”
