CD Projekt Red will soon be releasing version 1.5 of The Witcher: Enhanced Edition, which will come packed with more good stuff, less bad stuff and a nice little surprise for fans of the game.

The newest version of the game will include all the bonus material that came with The Witcher: Enhanced Edition - bug fixes, game upgrades, two new adventures, the D'jinii editor - along with five all-new fan-made adventures for Geralt and the gang. Along with those additions, CD Projekt Red is also taking something away: Version 1.5 of the game will be completely DRM-free and will not even require a disc check; gamers will be able to load and play without having the DVD in the drive.

All previous versions of the game will be compatible with the version 1.5 upgrade, including - here's the surprise - The Witcher: Enhanced Edition Director's Cut, which is apparently on its way to American shores. CD Projekt Red Vice President of Marketing Tom Ohle said he's "not revealing any secrets about that one just yet," but it seems pretty clear that a third release of the hit PC RPG is on the way.

No release date has been set but the update will be available free to owners of The Witcher and The Witcher: Enhanced Edition at www.thewitcher.com.
