We are slightly adjusting local pricing due to changes in currency exchange rates.

Due to recent significant changes in currency conversion rates, we need to re-evaluate and update the local price values for the products on GOG.com. When preparing for the launch of our local currency payment options we've monitored the conversion rates for 18 months, looking at the average, and rounding it to the closest 0.09. That's how we came up with - for example - the 4.49€ equivalent for the $5.99 price-tag (with 4.51€ being the average converted price out of the previous 18 months). With fairness and clarity in mind, we decided to stick to the prices calculated this way, and only update them if a really considerable change in currency exchange rates would occur.

Unfortunately, this happened much sooner than anyone would expect. There are evident changes in the conversion rates for almost all currencies used on GOG.com. Therefore, we are forced to adjust some of the local-currency prices of the GOG.com catalog items.The prices are changing only by a small margin that allows us to compensate for the recent shifts in currency exchange rates. Here's a representative example of the pricing changes:

For $9,99 games:
- the EUR price was: 7,49; is: 7,99
- the GBP price was: 5,99; is: 6,19
- the AUD price was: 10,89; is: 11,49
- the RUB price was: 359; is: 389

The changes will come into effect on Wednesday, October 1 at 12:00PM GMT. We apologize for any inconvenience this change may be causing you. Please remember that you have the option to switch your preferred currency back to USD in the site's footer.

We will continue to monitor the exchange rates and apply further updates. Hopefully, we'll see the rates reverting to their more beneficial state soon, so that the next small price update can be in everyone's favor. We will communicate any future adjustments in the forum thread for this topic, so please follow it if you're interested in the future development for local prices.
We’ve updated exchange rates and the current ones are as follows:

5.99$ = 5.39 EUR = 4.69 GBP = 8.79 AUD = 388 RUB = 22.99 PLN = 57.70 SEK = 54.70 NOK = 40.10 DKK = 5.99 CHF = 7.89 CAD = 24.59 BRL = 42.00 CNY

9.99$ = 8.99 EUR = 7.79 GBP = 14.59 AUD = 639 RUB = 38.39 PLN = 96.30 SEK = 91.30 NOK = 67.00 DKK = 9.89 CHF = 13.09 CAD = 40.99 BRL = 71.00 CNY

14.99$ = 13.49 EUR = 11.59 GBP = 21.89 AUD = 959 RUB = 57.49 PLN = 144.50 SEK = 144.50 NOK = 100.50 DKK = 14.89 CHF = 19.69 CAD = 61.59 BRL = 106.00 CNY

Grargar: I'm not sure if it was a bug. It seems to have been a 50% discount for everyone.

Grargar: There was a small discount change for Heroes of Annihilated Empires, from 80% to 75%.
It's possible that it's an error on GOG's side when shuffling the games in the Flash Deals. In the case of The Banner Saga it took the place of a game that was discounted by 50% in the previous round. Could also have been the case for Heroes of Annihilated Empires, and if you remember this did also happen in the Fall Sale (can't recall with which game though).

Heroes of Annihilated Empires was the game from the Fall Sale that replaced Deus Ex GOTY which had 75% off. Anyway, this whole discount mess is more than likely a bug, which also made an appearance on the Mount & Blade bundle as well, which was supposed to have a total discount of 75%, but both With Fire and Sword and Napoleonic Wars ended up having a discount of 1% less and costing each 10 cents more.

KainXVIII: Gog, why do you keep raising prices in rubles? Now its cheaper to buy in USD currency, eh..
Probably because the RU <-> Dollar exchange rate took a dive last week

Took me a few seconds to figure out why Grargar was conducting a dialogue with himself...

Today, we're once again forced to update the local prices in RUB as per exchange rate changes.
Here are the examples of the most popular prices, as they look after the update.

5,99$ = 519 RUB

9,99$ = 869 RUB

14,99$ = 1299 RUB

EUR, GBP, and AUD prices did not change.

We will communicate any future adjustments in the forum thread for this topic, so please follow it if you're interested in the future development for local prices.

G-Doc: 5,99$ = 519 RUB
O_O
Did you make a mistake in the conversion rate? 519 rubles is in no way that low yet. Certainly not according to xe.com.
^ Comrades, remember you can still pay in USD.

Perhaps they are thinking ahead :)
No wonder that Steam just implemented regional locking for Russia.

Naturalmente. It's only a global marketplace when companies can charge more, not less.
