CD Projekt RED launch the client for their service ahead of Witcher 3 launch.
Whereas CD Projekt RED’s GoG has been an alternate service to purchase PC games for a very long time now, it has lacked the traction or hold that something like Steam or Origin was immediately able to gain, simply because it only existed as a webstore- there was no client for GoG.
That changes today, as the long awaited, previously announced GoG client, GoG Galaxy, is now available for everyone, right ahead of the launch of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt a few days from now.
GoG Galaxy includes multiple Steam like features, from auto updates for games to social features such as Friends Lists, messaging, and Achievements. Some games will even feature cross platform multiplayer, meaning a GoG version of a game can play multiplayer with a Steam version.
Features like Auto-Update aren’t mandatory, either. Players can choose to turn them off. Making it optional is the best motivation for us to make it better,” says VP of online technologies Piotr Karwowski. “We want it to be so good that you’ll actually want to use it.”
You can download GoG Galaxy if you have a Windows PC or Mac right here.
