Thank you, just added my copy
Thank you for the heads up!
Weird, i already using galaxy and connected steam account, its still showing 49.99 usd
Fixed after reinstall even it was showing up-to date
My Galaxy got update before I've tried to check game page (haven't started it on that PC for a while), so there's a chance that I had no chance to see this issue =)
Bought it on GOG not so long ago (and have it on Steam for some time)
Anyway, I'm happy to support GOG/CDPR, hope they will stay good guys.
I also did the same thing. Bought the boxed version a couple years ago to support CDPR, which also helps to increase local game selling count. They deserved this.
You can get a giftable code of the game to give to your friends :D
That's something CDPR would do. Thanks for the heads up. :)
You can still get a giftable code of the game to give to your friends :D
Unrelated question. I have seen your DP in multiple profiles, but I don't know where it is from. Can you please tell me where it is from? Is it from a game?
I used the classic steam profile image. Not sure what game is it from.
Man, I know this is a very late reply. But thank you so much!
I heard about it and tried it (thought to gift it to my friend) and got Base Game as separate item. Their support in theory may help, but I don't want to bother them right now because they should have a lot of same tickets.
Anyway, thank you for letting now.
Well its "free game" given by the dev. If things work well, you will receive the GOTY edition Even if it is the standard edition, it is already a great "giveaway".
Hi, I own the game, but if anyone feeling generous to pass the spare GOG code,I know s.o who will be very glad to have it, thanks in advance :D
yup, CDPR is great
FAQ Claim a free copy of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt via GOG GALAXY 2.0
I have GOTY on steam and got ONLY vanilla version of game.
I guess it will not work for everyone or at least it will be available later (GOTY version)
I assume they have bug with GOTY detection since in Steam it's Sub, but not App.
Steam client show game like vanilla + bunch of DLCs.
I saw someone on GOG forum suggest it could happen if you bought the DLCs separately, but I'm pretty sure I bought entire GOTY and still got only the base game from this.
I'm 100% sure I bought GOTY version (steam account information -> licenses and purchases -> The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Game of the Year Edition)
Me the same :(
Yep, same. But i am not sure if we didn't receive Goty edition or maybe we did but it shows like the base game?
Since when you search on Steam it shows like W3: Wild Hunt as well, you don't see GOTY tag.
same, I have entire GOTY for 5$ on Steam but GOG can't detect it :)
Same here. I just checked the licenses and purchases on steam, it was The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Game of the Year Edition, but i still got the wrong version on gog.
Worked like a charm! Thank for a tip OP
Anyway, it kinda sucks...
I own GOTY edition and got vanilla one, even if the FAQ says otherwise.
Edit: opened gog a support ticket
Same here. I'll wait that finish importing, but the only version that appeared was the base game.
Edit. Didn't show. Hope they fix this.
How do you check if it is the Goty or base game?
I bought the GOTY version on steam, is listed like that in my purchase.
go to your GOG games list and check if in name you have just Wild Hunt or Wild Hunt GOTY
Hmm, looks like it is bugged for me as well. Hopefully, they will fix that.
Go to Licenses https://store.steampowered.com/account/licenses/ and search for "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Game of the Year Edition".
It's shown like that in my licenses page, but only the base game was activated on GOG
GOTY includes all DLCs and has GOTY in its name.
Took several minutes till the banner appeared in my Galaxy app, but it did.
Own base game on GOG, GOTY on Steam. Lets see if this works getting me the DLCs/GOTY on GOG, then ...
... but as somebody with too many Steam games, a slow computer, and very slow internet, it looks like it will be a day or two before I find out ;)
(According to their FAQ, it should, at least.)
Own GotY on Steam but got the base game. Let's see if there is a fix for this.
Edit: The issue is now resolved. Got the GotY entry in GoG galaxy and claim button again. Clicking on that, Got the GotY added in my GoG library.
Happy cake day!
Damn, did not realize this! 8 Years! I don't remember why and how I joined the site but I did win Red Faction in the First or Second month.
Thanks for reminding! Now, I'll have to create some GAs but too lazy for now. I think weekend would be a good time.

Do you need to give GOG your Steam password to get it?
i had to input my login and pass into gog galaxy 2.0 in order to link my steam acc to gog.
Wait, don't they use openid (or whatever it's called) to login? If not, that's a major flaw, especially since it's not official Galaxy team developing those plugins.
SteamAPI is trash and login through OpenID won't show limited games & DLCs.
Galaxy 2 is an open-source program, it is pretty safe.
Gog crashing when tries to sync up my steam library.
Same. Have been trying for an hour now, getting nowhere. Every time I start it up again it first tries to sync my GOG library, and 3 out of 4 tries it already crashes halfway through that, plus the client is just generally unresponsive.
Compared to this, even the new Steam library works well on my potato >_>
(And I already own base Witcher 3 on GOG since its release anyway -- and seeing what others are reporting, I probably won't get the DLC anyway even though I own GOTY on Steam ...)
Edit: Yep, only got base game on GOG, despite owning GOTY (bought as GOTY, not separately) on Steam.
GoG Galaxy 2.0 worked fine when the client first launched for me... but a few months back it just started crashing like you describe for me too when syncing. Even if you restart the client over and over until it's done, it ends up saying "Could not load data, click to retry" every time, making the client useless.
I'm assuming it's due to the size of the Steam library, but who knows? Hopefully it gets resolved at some point. :/
I can confirm, it refuses to sync my Steam library onto the GOG Galaxy 2.0.16 in the same manner as described by you.
Plus "Plugin has crashed. Retry." in the Gear Symbol -> Settings -> Integrations tab. Best we can hope for is a fix soon enough.
Everyone who experiences this, should report it from the imbedded support of the application. Gear Symbol -> Report Issue
Same with me. At least it saves what it already imported before each crash so you don't start over from scratch each time.
Same, keeps crashing... too many games I guess :/
Also only got base game on galaxy. Not very useful, as if I ever want to replay the game I'd play it on Steam, where I have the dlc. Zero chance of me re-buying the dlc on gog.
Glad this lasts some days, currently hospitalized so can't claim it until I'm back home, one of those things you can't do from a phone.
Also free if you have just played once with Xbox Game Pass
So, theoritically, one can join game pass for 1$ then sync witcher 3?
Yes, never played or bought Witcher 3. I just downloaded the game with Game Pass, then synced.
Cool , Thanks
Is this only for console? I'm not sure if Witcher 3 is on the PC game pass?
You're right, but again, theoritically, if i join gamepass ultimate for Xbox, synced my new xbox game pass library via GOG, it's syncable? or do I have to download the game or play it first via an xbox?
You have to play it first, just only opening it actually.
Okay, Thanks for the reply :)
You're welcome again!
I'm pretty sure you'd have to play it at least once, just joining doersnt change your account
I know its not exactly the same, but for example, I'm on the full Game Pass so I can play the PC games, but I dont get any free Games For Gold from the console permanently applied to my account because I dont actually have a console (i.e. not everything gets automatically added to my account)
EDIT: looks liek Jacknot22 beat me to it :-p
Gotcha, thanks man for the swift response
According to the official list it's only on Xbox
WOW, hola, so basically, this trick can help u buy the game on GOG for $1 if u have Xbox xD
Strange that they let this happen, or was it their small hidden giveaway.
If u really can buy this masterpiece with just $1, it's a steal with donation :)
Hi, not sure what u mean, but are u having a giftable GOG code, I own the game but know s.o who will be very glad to have it, thanks in advance bro :D
12. Begging. Do not ask game developers or users for keys or games, unless they are offering and searching for interested parties.
well, yes, apparently he's looking for someone on his own first, but I'm still not sure what he mean, so I just need a confirm xD
is linking steam on gog galaxy 100% safe? i already linked other platforms there
All connections other than Microsoft is 3rd party on Galaxy (user made, not GOG) and Steam connection somehow uses a different login window instead of regular openid thing. That's why I didn't connect my Steam account.
I had actually created a topic on GOG about this: https://www.gog.com/forum/general_beta_gog_galaxy_2.0/why_is_steam_integration_different_than_the_others
u are right, this risk seems exploitable somehow, but I still connect it for the sync, better take care your Steam with multiple protection then :)
Grabbed, I have GOTY on Steam so I don't know what GOG for, but free is free, thanks for sharing :)
Very generous of CDPR, just hope they fix the issue with steam GOTY editions eventually.
Oooh this is what happened with Portal 2. Console version came with a Steam code to play on PC.
They're investigating the problem (having GOTY but getting the standard edition instead).
Unfortunately Playstation 4 owners seem to be SOOL as there has been an issue with the playstation integration for a while now. When trying to log in you get timed out by the server and so are unable to actually claim it on gog.
Same problem here.
F**k you sony
When trying to sync my Steam Library in the GOG client it is giving me an error.
"Sorry, we couldn't load the data. retry"
On the settings window at the Integrations it shows also an error:
" Plugin has crashed. Retry"
Anyone know how to fix this?
Already closed the program and tried again.
It could be related that my Steam library is kinda big.
Yeh ,i think it is + reddit hug of death. I had one crash and 4 or 5 "couldn't load the data. retry".
This is what i posted elsewhere ,i got the game even though it was still halfway through importing my steam library.
I did a search for 'the witcher' after syncing steam with gog through GOG Galaxy.
There's a little search box at the top of your Galaxy client.
I opened up "The Witcher 3" from search results.
On The Witcher 3 page there is a small image with a "claim now" button.
I already had the dlc on Gog from a free offer they did a while ago so that might help some people if they don't have the full game on steam.
Maybe you also got that got free dlc offer ,it didn't need ownership of the main game to claim it..
Infinity loop - Sorry, we couldn't load the data.
