It’s not just Steam that has big sales at this time of the year. The chaps from GoG – or Good old Games if you prefer, even if that’s becoming a bit of a misnomer – also give away a bunch of games as we enter the holiday season.
Yes, their focus is still on older games, but there’s a great selection of newer titles up for grabs too. GoG’s just kicked off its “Big Winter Sale,” and you can pick up some great classics, plus a number of newer games on the cheap.
Importantly, the Witcher 3 is currently on sale for half price. Yes, a full 50% off of one of the year’s very best games. Right now, you can also get the incredible, overlooked Baldur’s Gate-styled RPG from Obsidian, Pillars of Eternity, for half price too. And if that’s your sort of bag (baby!), you can also get Divinity: Original Sin for 33% off. Something else to consider? The locally-made, definitely awesome Stasis, which is also going for half off.
Unlike this year’s Steam Sale, these deals have a shelf-life, with new deals going up every 24 hours (after this initial, 48 hour launch), until December 13.
Within the next 30 or so hours, you can also pick up these incredible bundles:
- Star Wars Saber Bundle (Knights of the Old Republic, Knights of the Old Republic II, Republic Commando, Dark Forces, Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight, Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast, Jedi Knight – Jedi Academy, Empire at War, Starfighter, Battlefront II ) – $22.44 (77 percent off)
- Star Wars Blaster Bundle (X-Wing Special Edition, TIE Fighter Special Edition, X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter, X-Wing Alliance, Rogue Squadron 3D, Galactic Battlegrounds Saga, Rebellion, Rebel Assault 1 and 2) – $28.72 (60 percent off)
- LucasArts Classics Bundle (Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, Indiana Jones and the Emperor’s Tomb, Sam & Max Hit the Road, The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition, Monkey Island 2: Special Edition, The Dig, Loom, Afterlife, Zak Mckracken and the Alien Mindbenders, Outlaws) – $16.90 (75 percent off)
- The Divine Pack (Beyond Divinity, Divinity 2, Divinity: Dragon Commander) – $10.62 (85 percent off)
GoG is also giving you a digital lucky packet, with $3 mystery games (each worth up to $34.99). On top of that, they’re giving away some freebies too; get a free copy of Divine Divinity after spending $5, and Blackguards Special Edition after spending $50 or more.
All of these games are DRM free (so Merry Christmas to you too, RyanZA!), so you’ll have no issues playing them across your systems.
