GOG Announces Digital Platform, GOG Galaxy

During its annual Summer Press Conference CD Projekt revealed that digital distribution service GOG will receive a DRM-free gaming service called GOG Galaxy.

Interestingly, GOG Galaxy will follow the same principles as GOG, so the platform will be completely optional, players will be able to enjoy the single-player component of games without connecting to the internet and the client will allow Steam and GOG players to play together.

Through the client, users will also be able to automatically update their games, chat with friends and compare achievements with other users. As an alternative to Steam, GOG Galaxy sounds really interesting, especially if we take into account that the upcoming service will be optional and DRM-free.

As of this news article, a precise release date for GOG Galaxy hasn’t been confirmed and CD Projekt RED didn’t provide any details regarding the Cross-Play functionality. For more information about GOG Galaxy visit the official website or watch the video embedded above.
