GOG.com unveils DRM-free GOG Galaxy
During today's GOG.com/CD Projekt RED Summer Conference, GOG.com introduced us to their vision for a truly gamer-friendly, DRM-free online gaming platform. It's called GOG Galaxy, and it's an entirely optional platform with new technology that places "unparalleled freedom" over online play and connectivively back into the hands of gamers.
"With this an entirely optional platform, players can dive into online multiplayer portions of their favorite games, while enjoying single-player anytime they please without needing an internet connection," GOG.com explained. GOG Galaxy is designed to be a platform-agnostic solution, allowing GOG.com and Steam players to game together with no restrictions.
An optional client will be released later this year, and GOG.com is already working with developers to implement the technology into their games.
