GOG has launched its annual winter sale, and there are some very attractive bargains up for grabs right now, with the likes of GAMINGbible's game of the year for 2019, Remedy's mind-twisting Control, and the our second-greatest game of all time, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, enjoying serious discounts.

The Ultimate Edition of Control is marked down right now by 50%, making it a steal at £17.49, and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, with its expansions included, is discounted by 70%, meaning you can pick up one of the most incredible games we've ever played for £10.49.

In total, the GOG winter sale has discounts on over 3,300 titles, of up to 91% off. Other big-name games in the sale include the hugely acclaimed Divinity: Original Sin 2, with the definitive edition of the RPG marked down by 60%; The Outer Worlds is half price; and the complete first season of Life Is Strange - which also featured in our greatest games of all time list (at 42) - is enjoying a 70% price cut, making it £3.19(!).

In addition to the considerable discounts on offer in the GOG sale, the store's giving away a free game, right now. Head to the GOG homepage and you can download Prison Architect for absolutely no pennies whatsoever. This offer only runs for 72 hours, starting at 3pm UK time on December 16th, so act now or lose out.

In related GOG news, the store yesterday (December 16th) announced that it would not be selling the acclaimed Taiwanese horror game Devotion, after developers Red Candle Games had announced it'd be on the store from December 18th. In a tweet, GOG claimed that it'd received "many messages from gamers", and would not be stocking the title. The game was previously removed from Steam following the inclusion, in game, of a comparison between Winnie the Pooh and China's President, Xi Jinping, with Red Candle opting to take it down globally to make changes. The game never returned to Steam in any country.

Devotion's announcement for GOG was widely praised, and GOG's u-turn has been strongly criticised, with many making connections between Cyberpunk 2077's success in China (GOG is owned by CD Projekt), and GOG not wanting to risk that for the sake of a relatively small indie game.
