GOG, or Good Old Gaming, is giving away The Witcher: Enhanced Edition for free for signing up for their news letter.
The Witcher was the beginning of one of the most popular game game franchises.
Your name is Geralt of Rivia and you are a witcher, that means you kill monsters for a living. You were given special training to be the best at what you do and your body has been enhanced with potent elixirs to help you do it.
Suffering from amnesia you remember nothing of your past. Kaer Morhen, the last remaining keep of the witchers, was attacked by a mysterious organization, just as you were starting to lick your wounds there. The battle is won but the secret recipe for the mutagen, a substance required to create more of your kind, has been stolen. The surviving witchers set out to find and reclaim it and punish everyone involved. Memory loss or not, you are one of them.
Set in a dark fantasy world with a unique medieval, yet somewhat modern, feel to it, The Witcher isn't just another fantasy RPG. With a deep story, complex characters, and tough choices that actually matter, this game will keep you glued to your monitor for days.

***** IMPORTANT NOTE BEFORE CLAIMING FREE GAME*****
After trying to claim my copy, it stated that I needed to have GWENT in my game library alraedy. This is a card game for The Witcher, much like Hearthstone. GWENT is also free, and it looks like this is a way for them to get more users signed up to play it.
In order for me to get it added to my library, I had to download the GOG Galaxy client (their game launcher, like Steam) and then fully install the game before it would be "added" to my games library. It's a 2GB Download, but was quick and easy to download, then uninstall.
Once I did this, I was able to refresh the free The Witcher page and it let me claim my free game.
You may also want to remove the GOG launcher from your Windows startup as well after doing all this.
