GOG Galaxy is Coming Out of Beta
GOG (Good Old Games) announced that the GOG Galaxy software would be leaving beta this April. Current users can update their software now, but new users will not receive the update until it is officially released.
The largest change to the software is the inclusion of Universal Cloud Saves, even on older titles. Saves can be setup for any game that is registered with the client, no matter the age, and be downloaded, tweaked, or deleted at any time from any machine.
The client has also received a slew of new features including bandwidth limiting and scheduling, FPS counter, screenshot capturing, in-game overlay, achievement rarity, desktop and in-game notifications system, and a new chat system. Each of these upgrades has the customization to be turned on or off to hit each player’s needs.
For those who don’t know, GOG is a game retailer founded on the notion of selling DRM-free games. While GOG Galaxy seems counter-intuitive, it is a completely optional piece of software that can be configured just how you like. To learn more, head over here.
