The patch will be released on July 8th and it will fix a couple bugs, remove DRM and add 5 user made adventures.
Starting on the 8th of July, you’ll be able to download the next update for The Witcher, version 1.5.
The patch focuses mainly on removing troublesome DRM, allowing you to play the game without the disc, while providing additional hours of fun thanks to new adventures created by the fan community. Patch 1.5 is the next stage of The Witcher’s life, and is also a means of expressing our thanks to the modding community for their hard work ion creating the adventures. The update will also be included in forthcoming The Witcher: Enhanced Edition Director’s Cut; more info on that product will be released shortly.
Patch 1.5 features:
Modifications: - copy securities (DRM) are removed
- playing the game no longer requires the game disc in the drive
- patch solves problems with EAX and blur
- 5 additional adventures made by the Witcher community: ‘Deceits’, ‘Blight of the Bogs’, ‘Wraiths of Quiet Hamlet’, ‘Wedding’, ‘Merry Witchmas’.
In order to install patch 1.5 correctly, you should have original Witcher game upgraded to 1.4 (enhanced edition).
Moreover, our website will be enriched with new graphic and music bonuses; also, a new section will appear, namely ‘Modifications’, which will enable you to download a mod to change the game’s difficulty level, created by Andrzej "Flash" Kwiatkowski. Gradually, new items will be issued there as well.
These guys are awesome. They've already supported their game more than most devs would, and they're still supporting it, despite having another game in the works.
