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 - There are some new artworks for cut-scenes in additional story.
The Witcher: Enhanced Edition Windows New Side Quests - Meet Sabrina the witch, or in this case, a sorcerer hunting for a renegade princess.
The Witcher: Enhanced Edition Windows Enhanced Base Game - Geralt lost his memories and cannot remember his past acquaintances and friends
The Witcher: Enhanced Edition Windows New Side Quests - Both additional stories are played through Dandelion's storytelling.
