GOG celebrates its 15th Anniversary with a massive sale, “Good Old Games”, and giveaways
From Press Release:
September 22nd, 2023 – GOG has been built on the foundation of making games last forever. Our desire was to make classic PC games’ digital versions fully available in a DRM-free model. Over the years, we’ve evolved into a platform that prioritizes gamers’ needs, offering a wide range of games, from timeless classics to modern hits.
Originating as ‘Good Old Games’ our primary focus was bringing classic games back to life, fixing and ensuring their playability on modern systems, as well as enhancing their visibility, accessibility, and discoverability. Today, operating as GOG, we continue these efforts, while expanding our offerings to include modern AAA titles, indie gems and online games. However, one thing doesn’t change – our commitment to preserving games through a DRM-free approach, ensuring they last for future generations of gamers.
Now is the time to celebrate the 15 years of making games last forever – by releasing three classic titles from Quantic Dream – Heavy Rain (discounted -50%), Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy Remastered (-69%), and Beyond: Two Souls (-50%), and launching the Anniversary event full of great deals and other surprises. Additionally, today marks the start of the long-awaited Ghostrunner 2 preorders, a must-play game for fans of the original Ghostrunner and anyone looking for an intense and immersive action experience.
There’s no anniversary party without presents – The Night of the Rabbit, a story-driven adventure, is up for grabs in a giveaway. Lose yourself in a tale of magic and wonder, where anything is possible and where nothing is quite what it seems: join young Jerry and follow a peculiar white rabbit to the wondrous realm of Mousewood, a land where critters can speak and where mystery abounds. The game is available to claim for free until Monday, September 25th, 1 PM UTC.
Originally, GOG stood for Good Old Games. Classic games hold a special place in our hearts and we are known for dedication to highlighting the gems of the past. In 2022 revived the Good Old Games concept and introduced the “Good Old Game” tag, which showcases over 500 games that our Team has deemed iconic classics – games that are older than 10 years and are critically acclaimed, stand the test of time, defined certain mechanics, or simply created new genres.
Through these 15 years we’ve successfully revived many classic titles that were pushed toward oblivion. Some of these titles are available only in our store, and easily discoverable under the “Only on GOG” tag. Among the titles featured there are known and beloved classics such as: Icewind Dale 2, Mortal Kombat 1+2+3, Homeworld: Emergence, Diablo + Hellfire and many, many more.
Some classics enjoy universal recognition and adoration, while others remain hidden gems. We commit to deliver gamers the finest Good Old Games and improve their visibility, accessibility, and discoverability. Here are a few exceptional anniversary deals awaiting you:
Join us in celebrating the 15th GOG Anniversary, which will last until October 2nd, 2023, at 10 PM UTC.
