You can own a copy of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt or The Witcher 3 GOTY on GOG by linking an account (that owns a copy) from PlayStation, Xbox, Steam, Epic or Origin.

Offer expires June 23.

Physical copy still works.

For those with Windows 10 and experiencing PSN timeout error:


Quote :
Bustacap: workaround until they fix it:

-Log in to PSN through your browser

-After the login open this link: https://ca.account.sony.com/api/v1/ssocookie
Copy content of "npsso"

Edit file %LocalAppData%\GOG.com\Galaxy\plugins\installed\psn_XXX\plugin.py

Go to line 64 and change value stored_npsso to copied "npsso" for example:

Was:
stored_npsso = stored_credentials.get("npsso") if stored_credentials else None

Is:
stored_npsso = "Copied value of npsso"

6. Restart GOG Galaxy
7. try connecting with PSN again

I just claimed this only having witcher 3 on gamepass for xbox
This is awesome! Thank you for sharing!

If you're like me though and you connected your account but still don't see the game, you may need to launch the game on the platform you currently have it on. I have it on Xbox but I hadn't played it yet (I have a huge, "never gonna finish all these games" backlog Frown ). I didn't see it in the GOG Galaxy 2.0 app, so I launched the game on my Xbox, closed GOG, opened GOG, it synced and then saw I had the game, and I was then able to claim the GOG version.
I have this on PS4 but impossible to connect PSN to GOG. Constantly getting connection timed out error. Google shows that this is a persistent issue. I gave up. Good luck folks.

Edit: I tried it on a Mac and it worked the first time. Like others say...could be a problem with Windows 10. Try the workarounds.

If you already own a copy of the Witcher 3, GOG will give you a free copy on their service as well.

I like the idea of having the game in another place, but GOG doesn't make this process clear at all.

Their FAQ page for this 'giveaway' is rubbish and unhelpful.

And once I found out how to link Steam (where I own the Witcher) to GOG it shows that no games are found for GOG connect.

Update: GOG now says it may take several days to find matching games from my steam library to add to GOG. It said this both yesterday June 16th and today the 17th

Update 2: still no progress as of June 19th.

I must have the greatest luck in the world just for this specific issue then, because I've rarely had any issue getting my PSN account to connect on GOG Galaxy 2.0. I just loaded it up and the only issue it seems to be having right now is loading the play time and achievements, but all my accounts are connected. Heck, it even showed that one of my friends is on his PS4 right now.

It's a shame I can't check if this offer is working fine even with the issues, since I don't own The Witcher 3 GotY yet. It's been on my list of things I'll eventually get, but since I already have such a large backlog of games I've never even touched, it just keeps getting put off. Plus every time it's on sale it basically goes down to the same price, $15, so I don't feel a rush to pick it up.

You sure lucky. If you search GOG PSN on twitter...tons of people are bringing up the PSN issue.

If you're using Windows 10 try using an older Windows or a Mac. The issue seems to be caused by Chromium, windows 10, and recaptcha interacting poorly together.

Yeah Frown Looks like that's the only system without an integration. Unfortunately that's also where I have my only copy of the game. I was hoping to try out the cross play

No love for The Switcher? Oh well— guess I'll just play one of the 4,000 games in my PC backlog...
