GOG.com digital backup

Claim the gog.com digital backup copy of the game at www.gog.com/witcherbackup

Information on where to find the game key is available here.

Possible issues:

  1. On www.gog.com/witcherbackup  you get “your product key is not valid” message when attempting to use your game key,
  2. You can’t find your game key,
  3. You own a copy of the game which was not equipped with a game key

If any of these issues occur apply for a replacement code here.

Please note! Gog.com copies do not come equipped with game keys as the only use for a game key is to be able to claim a gog.com backup copy of the game to have a digital backup on gog.com in case something happened to one’s non-gog.com copy of the game.

The Witcher for Mac – old Wine version

In November 2014 The Witcher for Mac was updated and doesn’t use Wine any more.

The builds on digital platforms like GOG.com and Steam were swapped and when you download the game from them you get the latest build. However, as it’s impossible to swap builds on already existing discs those who have the disc version, or those who downloaded the game before the swap and haven’t updated it will still have the old Wine version.

The old Wine version will not run on El Capitan.

To gain access to the new version of the game if you have the old Wine one:

  • on discs use your Game Code on gog.com/witcherbackup and download the Mac installer from GOG
  • on GOG either update it via Galaxy or download and install the game anew
  • on Steam switch on updates
