GOG GALAXY 2.0 invites going out as Closed Beta goes Live today

From Press Release:

There are two things that matter to all of us gamers: the games we play and the friends we play them with. But as more titles come with dedicated launchers and clients, our games and gaming buddies become scattered in between them. With GOG GALAXY 2.0, you’ll be able to combine multiple libraries into one and connect with your friends across all gaming platforms!

“​As gamers, we need to juggle between multiple clients to access our games and see what our friends are playing,” says Piotr Karwowski, Managing Director at GOG​. ​“​We believe gamers deserve a better experience, and this became the driving force to redefine GOG GALAXY client,”Karwowski adds.“​GOG GALAXY 2.0 is designed for all gamers and extends well beyond existing GOG.COM users, into both PC and console platforms.”

Once you connect GOG GALAXY 2.0 with other platforms, it will import all your games into one library. You will see your friends activities and online status across connected platforms. And it’s designed to protect your privacy – your data belongs to you and will never be shared with third  parties. We see it as an all-in-one solution for the present-day gamer. Experience GOG GALAXY 2.0 yourself — sign up for the closed beta at ​www.gogalaxy.com and be among the first to get access to it!
