The Cyberpunk 2077 Trailer Just Gave Away a Ton of The Witcher 3 Codes

Be lucky or fast and you might still get one

Hidden within the sprawling, scrolling code at the very beginning of the Cyberpunk 2077 trailer, which closed Xbox’s E3 2018 presentation, was a little surprise for the more observant gamers out there. Twenty five character codes rapidly scrolled by before fans even got a glimpse of gameplay footage, and it just so happens that Xbox Store codes consist of twenty five characters. According to those who got in early, the code unlocked The Witcher 3: Game of the Year Edition.

I’ve tested a few of these codes and so far they’ve all been taken, so it seems they’ve likely all been taken, but there were a lot of codes and freezing the image at the right time can be extremely difficult (especially on hotel wifi). So, if you’re still on the lookout for a free copy of The Witcher 3, you might want to check out the video below, specifically starting around the 2:31:00 mark. The codes appear after the ICBRK.exe program is “run”. Freeze it at the right time and you’ll be able to read some of the codes, enter them into your Xbox One or the Xbox website and you might get lucky.

As I said, all the codes I tried were either too hard to read, or were already taken, but with enough perseverance you might find one that hasn’t been snatched up already.
