GOG.com announces a new DRM-free online gaming platform

GOG.com has recently announced GOG Galaxy, a new gaming platform that aims to take on Steam. What's the main argument? a DRM-free library where you can play games such as Horizon Zero Dawn and The Binding Of Isaac: Rebirth (best prices). If you are interested in participating in the beta, here's the link. Here's what you can find on the official website:

Library features:

  • One-click install

    Prefer convenience? Install any GOG.com game with a single click, and it will forever stay up to date. As soon as the game is installed, it’s ready to play.

  • Backup copy download

    Want to backup your purchases? We get it. For all games, you can download a DRM-free backup installer that you can save to an external disk, drive or cloud.

  • Offline support

    It’s up to you when and how to play your games. GOG Galaxy will always work without an internet connection, and so will your games.

  • Rollback (soon)

    Sometimes game updates break things. Thanks to the built-in Rollback feature, you can restore your game to prior states with just a single click.

  • Optional auto-updates

    Don’t like being forced to update? In GOG Galaxy you can turn off auto-updating for any game and receive notifications when new updates are available.



In-game features:

  • Multiplayer & matchmaking

    GOG Galaxy-powered multiplayer games offer matchmaking and online play. In new and classic games alike, meet other players and make friends... or enemies.

  • Achievements

    Complete challenges laid out by the developers, experience more of the game, win bragging rights or just do it for the sake of your inner completionist.

  • Game-time tracking & stats

    For nearly every GOG game you can now track your play time. Additionally, select GOG Galaxy-powered games will offer extra stats or in-game leaderboards.

  • Crossplay

    Crossplay-enabled games offer online play between GOG and Steam. Because where you buy your games shouldn't prevent you from playing with friends.

  • Game overlay (soon)

    See notifications for new messages, requests or achievements, check on your progress and chat with friends... All that without leaving the game.

  There are also Community & Privacy features too,  but nothing different to what you can find on other platforms.
