GOG Galaxy 2.0 Update Will Organize Gaming Subscriptions


For those of you not yet familiar with GOG Galaxy it is a game client for PC and MAC by GOG. Unlike Steam, it is completely optional for GOG customers to make use of the game client; downloading purchased games from GoG does not require the app at all (This pertains to DRM Free games only).

GOG announced that the new client, which has been in open beta since last year, will be launching in the coming weeks, and recently promised users that it’ll also be getting a games discovery feature that will let you “follow upcoming releases, and discover games popular among your friends and the gaming community”. No firm release date has yet been announced.

Recently GOG updated the Galaxy 2.0 client so that it finally lets you manage all your PC gaming subscriptions in one place. For instance you can now see all your gaming libraries from Xbox Live, the Epic Games Store, PlayStation Network, Steam, and Uplay all in one place.

You can also browse, search, and install games without even leaving the GOG client.

Conveniently your friends will be displayed in the sidebar along with their online status and the games they are currently playing, so you can keep tabs on them.

For the more advanced users you now have the option to link multiple executables to any game and set up launch parameters. This will help launch games with custom mods attached.
