DRM-Free Steam Competitor GOG Galaxy Announced

Posted on Friday, June 6 @ 07:28:32 PST by Alex_Osborn
CD Projekt has announced GOG Galaxy, a DRM-freegaming platform comparable to Valve's beloved PC gaming service, Steam.



The major appeal of GOG Galaxy lies in its consumer-friendly approach to PC gaming. Users are not required to be online to play their games, unlike other services, where users need to maintain an internet connection in order to authenticate ownership of the title they're playing.

In addition, GOG Galaxywill feature a cross-play option, allowing users to play with friends on other services, like Steam.

Whether or not it will prove to be a worthy competitor to Valve's online platform remains to be seen, but there's a good chance CD Projekt'sflexible andconsumer-oriented approach could help push PC gaming to new heights. At the very least, it may get companies like Valve, EA, and Ubisoftrethinking their online strategies.
