CD Projekt held a short 30 minute "Summer Conference" this evening, hosted by joint CEO Marcin Iwinski. The main event was the announcement that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is now available for pre-order. As is usual for announcements of this sort, there was a detailed breakdown of the contents of the game's various editions, including an unboxing video for the Collector's Edition and a hilariously pretentious "documentary" about the statuette it contains. Marcin also revealed an exact release date for the game - February 24th, 2015. But the main attraction was the unveiling of yet another Witcher 3 trailer:
Ciri, Yennefer, and the Emperor of Nilgaard, oh my! Are you excited, Codex? If you'd like to pre-order, the price is $60, but there's a 15% discount if you own one of the previous two Witcher games, and 20% if you own both. Not bad.
But that's not all. After the Witcher 3 segment of the conference was complete, Marcin invited GOG manager Guillaume Rambourg up on stage to announce the second big news of the day, the unveiling of a new GOG.com desktop client called "GOG Galaxy", and along with it, a new game that will utilize its cross-platform features. It's name is "The Witcher Adventure Game", although it's not actually an adventure game but rather some kind of digital board game. Here's the trailer:
