How do you play this on wine? I see like 10 different files. Why so many files? What do I do with those files? Might as well include install instructions for the first game too.

Witcher3 along with Dishonored2 and Rise of the Tomb Raider are on my to play list as well.

There are a few youtube videos of Witcher3 working on the newer staging version of wine but additional patches are required. Wine3rc1 might have these patches included, the release notes do mention Witcher, Directx10 and AMD ( :D )

Do you have PlayOnLinux? I don't have Witcher3 yet but if the GOG package is like Witcher1 or Witcher2, just create a new bottle install dependences ( DirectX, DotNet) then run the installer.

check winehq.com for the correct wine version to run... GOG games usually are listed as their own version of the game. Play On Linux(POL)is something I would recommend as a frontend for wine.
