Over on GOG.com comes news that you have only 5 days left to pre-order and pre-download The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Digital Premium Edition.
You can also download 95% of the game right now, to save on time for the May 17th release. To incentivise people into making the purchase on GOG.com they advertise the digital version as “DRM-free”. It’s ironic that this is used as a selling-point; but alas it is a bonus.
Pre-ordering now will get you the following:
a virtual version of the collector’s edition artbook, the whole soundtrack with 4 unreleased tracks exclusive to GOG.com, wallpapers, avatars and a photo tour showing the behind the scenes work of your favorite CDProjekt Red team. Last (but not least!) you get one of five epic RPGs for free.
