GOG celebrates 12th anniversary with 3 new games and promo sale

GOG can proudly look back at 12 years of DRM-free gaming and offers customers a chance to celebrate with new additions and discounted titles.

After GOG celebrated its 11th anniversary with 5 new games and a promo sale, the company is still good for surprises. In this case it’s 3 newcomers: survival horror Silent Hill 4: The Room, sci-fi puzzler The Talos Principle: Gold Edition, and medieval strategy game Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord.

While the fourth Silent Hill title might be a bit controversial among fans (although I loved it on PS2), it’s a good sign that Konami has become part of the DRM-free platform (more about that in another upcoming post). Here’s hoping for the other three games making it to the platform. One can but dream… The Talos Principle has also took its fair amount of time to arrive, but it’s nice to have it in the newest edition, while Mount & Blade II is an early-in-development title that looks impressive, although it remains to be seen how the final version turns out.

Except for Silent Hill 4, the games are part of the 12th anniversary promo sale, i.e. together with many other titles, they have individual discounts that last until October 9, 2020, at 1 PM UTC. Buying Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord before the sale ends also unlocks the original Mount & Blade for free.

Time really flies by, and I can still remember that I was at gamescom when GOG first handed out fliers (an Abe’s Oddysee dollar note) close to the CD Projekt RED booth in the business area. So here’s to another 12 years of DRM-free gaming and bringing back the classics!
