If you've never played The Witcher game, you'll be in for a real treat. The game is "set in a dark fantasy world where moral ambiguity reigns"; you'll play as Geralt of Rivia, essentially a wondering supernatural monster hunter, and be tasked with completing various quests, with each decision dictating which of the game's three endings you'll uncover.

The game strongly emphasizes its story and character development, creating a truly immersive experience filled with many narrative plot twists. Moreover, The Witcher: Enhanced Edition boasts everything great about the original Witcher game, except with loads of new animations, NPC models, two new adventures: Side Effects and The Price of Neutrality, and more!
