Patch 1.5 coming for download on July 8th!

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 on 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:

- copy securities (DRM) are removed
- playing the game no longer requires the game disc in the drive
- patch solves problems with EAX and blurred graphics

- 5 bonus adventures made by the Witcher community: '˜Deceits', '˜Blight of the Bogs', '˜Wraiths of the Quiet Hamlet', '˜Wedding', '˜Merry Witchmas'.

In order to install patch 1.5 correctly, original Witcher game upgraded to 1.4 (enhanced edition) will be required.
