The first Witcher sold a total of 2.2 million. The conference played a trailer, announcing the game will be out on Mac exclusively on Steam for 9.99 USD, 7.99 EUR or 6.99 GBP. It will be one of those two-platform Steam titles, where one copy is valid for downloads for either Mac or PC.
Moving on, they had yet another trailer, for an interactive digital comic book coming to iOS. It will be released for free on the 17th of April for iPhone and iPad.
Moving on to "extraordinary announcements", first was a joint announcement for CD Projekt RED and GOG.com. No matter how or where you bought the Witcher 2 (retail or digital), you can now unlock a free backup copy at GOG.com. Go to gog.com/witcherbackup from the 17th of April.
GOG.com will start offering newer games in Premium Editions (which means digital artbook, soundtracks, and the like), always DRM-free. The first title announced was Assassin's Creed, with a lot of extras like an artbook, soundtrack, concept art, user avatars and wallpapers in digital form. Second was Heroes of Might & Magic V complete with expansion packs. Both titles will be $19.99, but they'll be offered packaged together for $19.99 on sale until April 12th. They also showed a point-and-click/exploration game from the makers of Machinarium, which will be available for preorder on GOG.com for $8.99, called Botanicula.
And finally, as a bonus to existing and new users, they are going to gift Fallout for free for the coming 48 hours.
