GOG.com, the DRM-free digital games distributor, has announced what they will be doing to celebrate the holiday season this year, starting on the 8th of December 2011 and continuing all the way until the 2nd of January 2012.
GOG.com will start their holiday sales and get in the holiday spirit by putting together an incredible package deal on the Witcher franchise of games on GOG.com. From 8 December 2011 at 12:00 GMT until 10 December 2011 at 11:58 GMT, visitors to GOG.com will be able to pick up The Witcher 2 for just $23.99 and they will get The Witcher: Enhanced Edition for free! This is the best price that GOG.com will have on the Witcher franchise for the whole season, so be sure to pick them up then if you’ve been looking for a chance to play these classic games.
Then, because the holidays are about giving, GOG.com will be giving away more than 400 game codes for a variety of PC classic titles on both Saturday (the 10th of December) and Sunday (the 11th) through social media channels and on their website.
Finally, they continue in the giving spirit and, starting on the 12th of December at 12:00 GMT, GOG.com will be having a 48 hour giveaway of Empire Earth: Gold Edition where anyone can add it to their account for free! Furthermore, GOG.com starts their holiday sales on the 12th, and will be having their “50% Off Holiday Celebration” of virtually every game in the catalog from then until the 2nd of January 2012. Classic games from some of the greatest publishers and developers in the industry, like Interplay, EA, Ubisoft, Atari, Activision, Sierra, and others are all on sale on GOG.com.
During the first two weeks of the sale, GOG.com will also be having special contests and giveaways in order to spread the holiday spirit, so be sure to check out GOG.com for your chance to get free games to play during your holiday break.
