The Witcher: Enhanced Edition is a stand-alone, updated version of the original game with the addition of two new scenarios: "The Price of Neutrality" and "Side Effects". This release includes improvements to animations, character and monster graphics, NPC character models, and translations, and overall game performance. With this edition players can opt to mix and match languages (for instance, hear the voices in French while reading English subtitles).

In addition to the game itself, the boxed retail version contains:
  • "Making of" DVD
  • 2 Soundtrack CDs
  • The short story The Witcher by Andrzej Sapkowski from his book The Last Wish (bound)
  • Map of Temeria
  • Redesigned game manual
  • Official strategy guide
  • Artbook (GOG version only)
  • Calendar (GOG version only)
The in-game content of the Enhanced Edition was offered as a free download to owners who registered their original game. In some cases the game was later renamed to The Witcher: Enhanced Edition - Director's Cut when patch 1.5 was released. It removes the nudity censorship of the North American version.

The Witcher: Enhanced Edition Windows New Side Quests - The tent looks much bigger from the inside... but that's mostly due to illusion element.

The Witcher: Enhanced Edition Windows Enhanced Base Game - Nature's clothes are the best
