Keep up to date with the latest GOG.com offers, purchase, install and play games all from this client
GOG.com has done a lot of people a great deal of good over the years, and it’s one of the heavyweights when it comes game DRM-free distribution. Now, the people at GOG.com have decided to create GOG Galaxy, a client that provides the same functionality as that of the website, while it also adds a few features that make the gamer’s life a whole lot easier.
Slick, user-friendly and very practical
GOG Galaxy enables its users to purchase, download and install all the games that are available on GOG.com with the same discounts, bundles and so on. The client displays a smooth and highly comprehensive user interface that makes it accessible to anyone who is looking for a better way of managing their GOG bought games and not only.
Through the GOG Galaxy GUI, you will be able to browse the newest titles, check out offers, add games to your wishlist, view technical details and even read up on what other people say about them. However, the best feature, so far, is that GOG Galaxy can be used to install all the latest updates and game patches that are released through the website, without there being a release delay between the two. Once it’s out, you get it.
A tool that brings the community closer together
GOG Galaxy is designed to offer a bunch of in-game features that enrich the GOG.com experience. You get multiplayer matchmaking and achievement tracking, stats oversight and crossplay. The latter means that if you or your friends have Steam acquired games, installing them over GOG Galaxy won’t affect you in any way, and neither will it prevent you from playing together.
With GOG Galaxy, you even get a chat feature that makes it possible to see what your friends are playing so you can join in or make an invitation to your game.
It’s optional, but things are so much better with it
GOG Galaxy is an optional application for GOG.com users. Not having it installed won’t affect the way you purchase or play games but there are several good reasons for you to have it. More so, it also provides several features that can be enabled or disabled according to your preferences.
