The Witcher 3 has no DRM and never will


CD Projekt Red co-founder Marcin Iwinski has confirmed on the company blog that the PC version of the game will have no Digital Rights Management attached to it in any form throughout it's lifetime. 


"I’d like to say it loud and clear: The PC version of The Witcher 3 will have absolutely no DRM from day 0. Zero. Zip. Nada. It doesn’t matter if you choose to buy it and support us directly or buy the game in box format, you’ll still get the 100% DRM-free experience. And this goes for the whole world." said Iwinski

He went on to speak about the series' sales figures so far.

"Having said that, I’d like to thank you for your continuous support. You’ve bought six million copies of the Witcher games so far. Whoo-hoo! Let’s celebrate. Here, have some cake!"

On the 360 I take it. If you ever get the chance to play them on PC then do it

You still get the same experience from the 360 as you would with the PC version of the witcher 2.

You get the same kind of experience but you get a better one on PC, it's like saying Civ 5 on a console and Civ 5 on a PC are the same (Bit of an exaggeration but what the hell)

I do not see how just having better graphics makes it a better experience to be honest, oh and the load times are quicker but thats it. Also civ 5 did not come out for consoles which is a shame.

Have you seen the changes that CD Project made to the Witcher 2 for 360?
Zombieflamingo's avatar

What changes? I know there was additional content and so on but that got patched into the PC version. There were also more load screens between places on the 360 one but not that much.

Worse Lighting, (Nothing to do with the textures) worse AI, Combat felt less fluid, The menu, no real time potion mixing. I'm all about immersion and while the 360 Port was good, it lost in that department

Like saying Deus Ex 1 on the PC vs the Xbox/PS2 were the same

For what it was they did not really miss out much I never noticed a difference in the AI or fluid combat between playing on both. Do not know why they took away the real time potion stuff don't feel as though it made any difference anyway as when doing it you always made sure you were in the same place. I suppose the lighting would just be as good as the PC you played it on compared to the xbox so if it is a good pc then it would be better. Never played Deus Ex 1 on either so couldn't comment I am just going on my opinion from playing on both.

Never played Deus Ex 1? WTF have you been doing with your gaming life? Go buy it right now (Or wait for a Steam Sale)

How do you know? You have never played it and you also what "realistic" graphics for your games
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
Still looks shite, and I've played the new one which is meh at best. Also, I don't base a game on "realistic" graphics.. if I did I wouldn't play any games.

Will maybe pick it up for cheap if I see it, never really been overly fussed by the looks of them. Played the most recent one and it was ok.

It is widely considered to be one of the best games ever made

Never understood the hype for Half Life, it was good but not as great as it is made out to be. You know there are going to be so many disappointed people when the third comes out as no matter what it will never live up to the hype now.

Half-Life is good and the first one was revolutionary when it was released but it's not one of the best IP's ever
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
You won't believe this but I have never played the first one. I see it has been remade in the black mesa mod so I have been tempted to try it with that.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar

It won't be as good since a lot of games have followed on from what Half-Life did but it is worth a play
