GOG launching their own DRM-free online gaming platform

Written by Andre Yoskowitz (Google+) @ 06 Jun 2014 23:25

GOG launching their own DRM-free online gaming platform Good Old Games (GOG) is preparing to launch its own Steam-esque online gaming platform, however, this system will be completely DRM-free and will be optional rather than mandatory like the aforementioned Steam, or EA's Origin.
Dubbed GOG Galaxy, the platform will have auto-updating software, a player communication portal and will add multiplayer gaming for GOG Galaxy buddies and across platforms.

Unlike Steam and Origin and others, the platform will be optional, so won't need to be online to launch your games (or play), and you don't even have to use the client if you prefer to download the DRM-free games right from the game site.

Of course, multiplayer and friend chatting will require the platform and a profile but still not mandatory.
