The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a big game, with a lot of room to explore. If you played through the game on a console and have been thinking about revisiting it (maybe you just finished bingeing the Netflix Witcher series), now’s the best time to do it.

GOG Galaxy 2.0 is offering a free copy of the game’s Windows PC version to anyone who already owns it on a console, as well as to those who own the PC version on Steam, Origin, or the Epic Games Store. It’s a steal (well, it’s free), especially if you want to try out The Witcher 3 on a different platform but don’t feel like committing to the cost of a new game in order to do so.

Unfortunately, this deal doesn’t extend to Nintendo Switch players, but for everyone else, the offer lasts until June 23. The edition you receive, normal or GOTY, will depend on which edition you already own — just link your PlayStation Network, Xbox Live, Steam, Origin, and Epic Games Store accounts to find out. It even works if you’ve downloaded The Witcher 3 through Xbox Game Pass! (For more information on how to redeem the offer, which expires at 7 a.m. EDT on June 23, check out GOG’s FAQ.)
