Is Internet access needed to install the retail PC version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt?

Created 2 months ago  Updated 2 hours ago

The initial, pre-­premiere retail PC batch of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt needs to download a file from our servers to allow play.
This file will either be downloaded automatically during installation process (via GOG Galaxy, optional DRM­-free gaming platform of GOG.com) or you can choose to download it manually at play.thewitcher.com.
Since  we  have  no  DRM  in  the  game,  this  is  a  security  measure  we  needed  to incorporate so the game doesn’t leak during the production process. No worries, the file will not be big.

Copies of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt produced after launch do not contain this security feature.
