Gog New Year Sale Promo Image

GOG has kickstarted its New Year Sale giving PC gamers plenty of opportunities to pick up great games for affordable prices. This year’s sale features over 2,500 games with discounts going as high as 90% off. There is a huge variety of included games, from AAA blockbusters to iconic indie titles.

Those interested will want to make sure that they don’t wait too long as this is a time-limited sale. It will run until January 31, 9 PM ET. Also, there will be some flash deals that don’t last as long, so be sure to keep an eye out.

 

With over 2,500 games available in the GOG New Year Sale, it can be a daunting task to figure out what to buy. And although the best options are going to depend on your personal tastes, there are some particularly appealing deals. Despite its notoriety at launch Cyberpunk 2077 at 50% off ($29.99 USD) is a good shout. Another attractive option is The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Game of the Year Edition at 80% off ($9.99 USD). Those who favor the classics may instead prefer LucasArts’ The Secrets of Monkey Island: Special Edition at 65% off ($3.49 USD). Or if you’re more of an indie fan then look no further than Don’t Starve at 75% off ($2.49 USD).

Why use GOG?

Obviously, we all love a good sale, but GOG is just one of many digital game distribution services. Why should you bother using it over other competitors like Steam and Origin? For many of its users, the big appeal of GOG is that all games sold through the platform are DRM-free.

DRM stands for Digital Rights Management, and it’s what developers use to protect their products from piracy. Unfortunately, a common side effect of DRM is that it restricts when and where a user can access their games. It often requires the owner to be connected to the internet to access their library. Games purchased through GOG don’t have this problem and can be played freely upon purchase.
