The Witcher 2 Special Editions, DLCs & Bonus Laser Mouse and Mousepad! Son-of-a-Witch!

The follow-up to the 2007 CD Projekt RED STUDIO game, The Witcher will bring with it special editions to loyal fans of the series. Little bit late on the updates, but given the site has only been up for around three week I hope you can forgive my lack of up-to-date-ness 🙂

Available in two edition: The Witcher 2 Collector’s Edition (sold out) and The Witcher 2 Premium Edition.

The Witcher 2 Collector’s Edition was originally available from EB Games but has since pre-sold out (RRP $148 with a release date for May 17th, 2011), and with good reason given the extras included in this bundle. Inside you’ll find:

To ease the pain of missing out on the The Witcher 2 Collector’s Edition, EB Games are offering as a pre-order bonus an Exclusive Mysterious Merchant DLC Pack, as well as a Laser Mouse and Mouse Pad!

The Witcher 2 Bonus DLC
The Witcher 2 Mysterious Merchant DLC Exclusive to EB Games.

 

The Mysterious Merchant DLC unlocks a special character for each chapter of the game that will sell you items so you can bypass the side quests, as well as ingredient, schematics, valuables and other random offerings.

The Witcher 2 Bonus Laser Mouse and Mouse Pad

The Witcher 2 Laser Mouse features The Witcher 2 logo while the Mouse Pad features artwork from the game. A free mouse with a PC game? You can’t ask for more than that!

If these bonuses don’t tickle your fancy, you can always get the Premium Edition from JB Hi-Fi or GAME but neither store are offering any sort of incentive.

So there you have it, a bad situation turned into a good one. The Witcher 2 Premium Edition is still available for pre-order at EB Games.

Get out there and pre-order now! With a nice bonus like that, I can’t imagine it’ll be around for too long. Don’t make me witch slap you!
