We suggest you upgrade newer and better browser like: Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer or Opera

There are two things that matter to all of us gamers: the games we play and the friends we play them with. But as more titles come with dedicated launchers and clients, our games and gaming buddies become scattered in between them. With GOG GALAXY 2.0, you’ll be able to combine multiple libraries into one and connect with your friends across all gaming platforms!

As gamers, we need to juggle between multiple clients to access our games and see what our friends are playing,” says Piotr Karwowski, Managing Director at GOG. “We believe gamers deserve a better experience, and this became the driving force to redefine GOG GALAXY client,” Karwowski adds. “GOG GALAXY 2.0 is designed for all gamers and extends well beyond existing GOG.COM users, into both PC and console platforms.

Once you connect GOG GALAXY 2.0 with other platforms, it will import all your games into one library. You will see your friends activities and online status across connected platforms. All new library and friends features apply to your GOG.COM games and enhance your experience. And it’s designed to protect your privacy – your data belongs to you and will never be shared with third parties. We see it as an all-in-one solution for the present-day gamer.

Experience GOG GALAXY 2.0 yourself — sign up for the closed beta at and be among the first to get access to it!

Chromanin: Just wondering, are there plans to also integrate any of the services for these other platforms? I'm mostly talking about Steam streaming, library sharing, big picture, etc.

Also, does GoG galaxy have controller support? Another big reason why I use Steam.
Controller support is provided by the game itself, instead of GOG Galaxy :)

Such info can be a check on the gamecard.
high rated
phaolo: Good, but can you please tell me if this new version will add the option to manage offline setups? (games not installed, but stored on an external hdd).
Currently this is only possible with the unofficial user script gogrepo.
Without it, catching all the updates would be impossible.
You will be able to manually add single games that are not connected to any platform :)
Kristian: Two blue posts so far today, but neither one about Linux. It is like if there is a line in a store and the people at the store ask some people way in the back of the line to come to the register while ignoring everyone in front of them.
Because GOG GALAXY 2.0 is designed for Windows and Mac :(
bhrigu: I don't think this answers the question.

The question asks whether GALAXY would have a system to download and manage an archive of backup installers and update those "offline installers" when they are updated.
I'm afraid not, update is a feature specific to a platform, it won't work if a game is added from an offline installer.
high rated
Kristian: It seems they can answer a question about save games, fairly quickly even:

But Linux? That gets ignored.
It's stated e.g. in the forum post: we aim for Windows and MacOS for closed beta.
That obviously means Linux is not supported currently... We're sorry if it's something important for you, and for others.
Kristian: They have also not addressed if they mean that literally such that Galaxy for Linux will never come.
We're not saying GOG Galaxy for Linux will never come.

edit: Oh! My first post in this topic. I'm super excited for closed beta to go live soon! :)

sc_neo: 1. Will we need to connect our steam, uplay, origin whatever accounts with our GOG account like with GOG Connect, and will we need to enter the account credentials including password into the new galaxy 2 client? Or will it suffice to be logged in in each of those clients and then galaxy can connect to them locally?
With official integrations, you'll need to use your credentials to get all of the data, but your credentials are not stored in GOG GALAXY 2.0.

sc_neo: 2. Will galaxy 2 be open source so we can audit it to be sure what data it gathers?
With official integrations you'll always know what information is imported, as before you connect your accounts we will list that information for you. Community created integrations will be open-source so you'll be able to check what data is imported.
bhrigu: c. GOG is mostly silent about adding more essential conveniences like downloading of earlier versions of offline installers, managing backup archives to Galaxy
"Backup installers" are almost the same as having the installed files of the game on the disk. (they weight more)
Currently on our nearest roadmap, there's no plan to support automatically downloading and updating backups of installer files. You can still download them to your disk through Galaxy at any time.

"With official integrations, you'll need to use your credentials to get all of the data, but your credentials are not stored in GOG GALAXY 2.0. "

So where are my credentials of the other clients stored then if not locally in galaxy 2.0 client? Are my 3rd party credentials uploaded to GOG cloud servers instead of being saved locally?
As far as I know, the integrations store a token that lets you authenticate, so it's not plaintext credentials. (just like GOG Galaxy currently does for your GOG account)
victorchopin: Howdy!

..... WHEN?!!?

Thanks compadre ;)

ps: I'm a bit worried about specs. Should I be worried or it'll be a lightweight one such as Galaxy 1.0 ?
Soon. :) I hope the performance will be even better than now, don't worry.

JohanLiebheart: If I already receive beta updates for Galaxy, do I still need to sign up for the closed 2.0 beta?
Yes, separate process.
.Ra: I wonder if the overlay also gets a similar UI? I think that could use it more if anything.
Sign up for Beta to figure out ;)!

i_hope_you_rot: Will this support the Big Fish Games client ?
GOG GALAXY 2.0 aims to connect all clients and launchers :)
Ashleee: GOG GALAXY 2.0 aims to connect all clients and launchers :)
i_hope_you_rot: Is that means the Galaxy client will store my login names / passwords from all my game clients ?
No, we don’t store log in info.
avatar On top of that, you can also manually edit the metadata of every game in your master games collection.
lolplatypus: Okay, for those of us not using Galaxy, any chance of this feature comming to the site library? Because that would be amazing.
No :( this feature is only available in the app...
moobot83: guess gog only answer qwestions from people with positive ratings since my qwestion got simply ignored thanks
hey that's not true ;)

quoting Chandra's answer: "If you want to get access to any features specific to that platform, (like installing or auto-updating games, cloud saves, etc.), that gaming client will still have to be installed on your PC :)
GOG GALAXY 2.0 will launch the other client for you in the background."
