Is the GOG version of DD on par with Steam version in terms of updates and patches?
I would like to know this as well.
last i knew the pawn rent bug was still in effect last time i looked (ie. no rent reports so no rc /items etc from people renting your pawns)
though you can still use your friends pawns or rent other peoples pawns with enough RC
beyond that we havent seen an update since june 2017 and all that shows in changelog is "fixed an issue with saves sometimes becoming corrupted while switching between offline and online modes"

That's sad, but thanks a lot for the answer, it's been really useful :D
A quick glance at Dragon's Dogma Steam page reveals that there's been at least two updates that have yet to be added to the GOG version.

Unfortunately, this isn't the first instance of a developer/publisher neglecting their games on GOG while maintaining support on other platforms.

Getting tired of purchasing unsupported games on GOG, pawns are such an integral part of this game.

I've held off buying any more games here for this very reason... I'd rather deal with logging in to Steam to play something as long as it's getting updated and supported... DRM-free is great and all, but... what's the point if you're buying something that isn't getting title updates?
I sincerely hope there will be updates coming at some point, because the main bugbear for me is the abysmally scripted sidequests.

For example, start 'sidequest A' only to fail it without realising because you've entered another area or plot point, then get offered other sidequests, let's call them 'B, C, D', that are rendered impossible to complete without 'sidequest A' being completed previously.

In a well scripted game which has a string of multiple quests linked to one another, failing at any point should render the rest of the string inactive, meaning the player doesn't get offered any subsequent quests of the same string. In this game, you still get offered those later quests, but have absolutely no way of completing them, because characters and locations mentioned never appear.

This is the kind of thing I might expect and be somewhat forgiving of, if it was an indie developer with an alpha release of a game, but this is a large developer with what's supposed to be a 'finished' product release.
Any idea if you can use update files from steam in the GOG version?

If the main exe hasn't been updated, might be possible... I did that for kicks one time with Hyper Light Drifter... used WinMerge to find the differences between the GOG version and the up-to-date DRM-free version from The Humble Store... copied over all the modified files from the Humble version and it worked great (showed the right version number on the main screen and all that), BUT... in that case, the main exe was exactly the same in both... I have DDDA on Steam and GOG... I might see if the main executable's are the same... if they're not, I doubt it'd work, which will most likely be the case cause the Steam version has the DRM in it

Thanks for your answer, I might try/check this with the exe's too

I ended up getting a refund a couple of months ago. I bought it because I thought that the game had been updated, but that was not the case. The support guy told me he would have "made the product team aware of the issue" but AFAIK the game is still out of date.

Correct... it's still out of date with the Steam release... granted, the game is still completely playable from start to finish, but... it would be nice to get the game updated
