The DRM-free initiative.

We've always been on a mission to offer you games with no DRM protection whatsoever. Today, we want to start taking things a step further, help out people who bought a retail game with DRM, then ended up stuck with something rather unplayable. We can help you enjoy your favorites once again, and this time around, enjoy them DRM-free!

There are countless retail games out there that don’t work for various reasons: unsupported types of DRM, system incompatibilities, broken features. There's too many too count. Starting today, owners of several retail titles originally sold with DRM can get a digital copy of their game completely free at with no DRM as always, compatible with modern operating systems, and with plenty of goodies to boot.
<span class="bold">Reclaim these games, DRM-FREE:</span>

Editions released worldwide:
-S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl
-S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky
-S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat

Editions released only in CIS & Russian territories:
-Mount & Blade: Warband
-Mount & Blade: With Fire & Sword
-Eador: Genesis

To reclaim your game, just use one of the keys that came with your box. You can find more detailed information on the Reclaim your games, DRM-FREE! page to see if your key is compatible and just where to go from there.

This is just the start of something much bigger. We plan to add more titles to the list in the future - it's a long and complicated process that involves negotiating with multiple parties and a scavenger hunt to retrieve forgotten key-databases - but then, we are on a mission here, we'll do whatever it takes.

great idea...doesn't apply to me (yet) but thanks all the same! love it.
Cool! So can you do this with Steam games too, even if they don't have codes? Because that would definitely come in handy for the more expensive Steam-first games like the Y's series and Baldur's Gate Enhanced 1 and 2.
Nice touch. Too late for me for the S.T.A.L.K.E.R games I bought again on GOG a while ago and got rid of my boxed copy (discs went to recycling I believe)

I've pretty much replaced most of my games. But nice touch for those who haven't.
whoa that's massive
Another great gesture from both GOG and the developers/publishers.
I can confirm that it works with the STALKER games on Steam.

Copy past the CD key from your steam page, and off you go.

edit - except SoC do not have a CD key...

Great! Can't wait to see what other games might be available later on :-)
Splendid idea! This is a feature I don't thought I would ever see on a digital distribution website.

Brilliant! Nothing on there for me to reclaim yet, but this is such a great idea.

GOG is the nicest online retailer that has ever existed ;)
That's really great!
I don't own any of the available titles, so it's not useful for me right now, but maybe at some point in the future...
Nice going, gog :)
Guys help, i managed to reedem my Stalker Clear Sky steam key, but Stalker Call of Pripyat just wont activate and it is also a steam key. It says that my code is invalid. And i cant even find my steam key for Stalker Shadow of Chernobyl, really weird

I'm guessing you mean Library. Well, I right-clicked the games looking for "View CD-Key" but none of them had it. Where did you find them?
EDIT: Oh, nevermind. I see what you mean now. Had to switch to Detail View.

Any chance you could make it work for copies of stalker bought on Gamersgate which have now turn into steam crap?
A question nagged at me is, what's stopping people from using keygens and claiming games that they didn't actually buy?
