Matches the price at GOG but allows you to play through Steam instead if you'd prefer Steam.

Absolutely fantastic price.

This game isn't for everyone, but with Steam at least you can give it a try and if it's not for you within the first 2 hours then just refund it.

Offer ends 22nd October.

I might buy this even though I already own it on Xbox

One of the hottest game deals I've seen in a while. Cheers OP!

Completely agree, I've been waiting for this price and I was ready to bite at the GoG deal but I just prefer Steam so held out.

For sure. Don't get me wrong I like the idea of GOG but kind of like having my games in one place if it's an option.

Origin, Uplay, Bethesda, Blizzard, GOG... I don't like having my PC 'clogged up' with too many launchers.

Plus.. Steam achievements are the only ones I collect off the consoles... Small thing but I kinda like them

Thanks for posting. Definitely getting this... Played the main game on PS4 but been waiting for a good deal on the GOTY for my next playthrough!

Great game. Great graphics. Masses of gameplay. Great price

Heat added, although I'm still waiting for it to be under a tenner before i can buy it!

Red hot deal. Superb game. One of my favourite games of the last 40 years!
If you don't have it, buy it now!

You'll regret it. Saying this as someone who basically never spends more than £5 on a game.

Absolutely could not resist at this price!

Sooooo tempted but by the time I get through my backlog this will be sub £10

Sod the backlog, put this to the front of the queue. Seriously, you won't regret it.

I can honestly say this is the best game I've played this decade, quite possibly ever. It's also one of the few games I've ever bothered to play more than once, which is saying a lot considering how many games I've played and how long a Witcher 3 + DLC play through takes (~200 hours, in my case).

It's a great game but there are some very tedious quests on Novigrad! Glad I pushed through.

​The most tedious part of the game for me was going to every ? in the waters of Skellige. I'll still do it again tho.

Do I pick this up for steam even though I own it on GOG already? ..Hmm.

That's dedication! How many hours was your playthrough?

70-80 hours, I ignored the Gwent part of the game on my first run through but after playing the standalone card game I'm going to master it in my second playthrough.

I have the standard version on GOG. Not sure what to do in order to get all the DLC?

The game is absolutely brilliant. I cannot get enough of it.

I have heard nothing but good things about this like you say I probably should drop everything to play it but I know how many hours I'll have to put in to it and by the time I'm done with it my backlog would have probably grew even more, I'm going to use this game as incentive to get through the backlog even quicker so I can take my time with it and give it the attention and time it deserves

I hate how this basically punishes me for buying the base game early on.

Worth it for 60 FPS!

Annoying that it's £13.99 for everything or £9.99 for just the DLC if you already have the game. If only I could pay £13.99 and get the dlc, plus a code for the main game I can gift to someone else

I'd be lucky to hit 6 fps on my MacBook Pro

C'mon dude, don't go lumping GOG in with Uplay. Not only do Ubisoft games, purchased on Steam, require you to log in to Steam to play; they then force you to log in to Uplay on top of that!

On the other hand, you can download games from GOG.com and play them straight off your Desktop. You don't even have to install their launcher, GOG Galaxy. They're completely DRM free. You can put them on an external hard drive and lend them to your friends, you don't even have to log in or anything.

Personally, I use Galaxy because it's just there to give you easy access to achievements, your friends, and of course, the store.

The only downsides are the smaller catalogue of titles available, and the limited social functionality; but only when compared to Steam. It is equal or better to all the others I'm aware of (Origin, Uplay, Blizzard).
If more gamers continue to support their consumer-friendly approach though, I'm sure we will start to see more games and social features added. So yeah, don't completely write them off just yet.

Like I said. Really like the idea of GOG. Just personal preference to have all my stuff in one place if it's available there. I wasn't 'lumping in' or comparing any of what I listed. Just saying I don't want another launcher or games installed willy-nilly like it's the 90's or something... God I probably wouldn't even remember where I'd bought games from if they weren't all in one or two places.. It's just preference... (OCD.. Control freak.. ? Definitely)

I'm not writing them off and I'm certainly not saying that they're a bad thing, they're just not for me. Much like Apple users are bought in to an ecosystem with their suite of products I've bought in to Steam. 13 years and counting. If I'd started with GOG I'd probably feel the same way towards that now

Bought this for the Xbox one but only played a few hours so don't mind picking this up with all the dlc.

Looking forward to it but I now have to find the time. Hmmmm
