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.
Is it just me or have prices on GOG increased for Germans in the last days?
I should have bought Overload when it was $19.99, now it's $21.72 which is even more over my usual price range.
Something is off.
I can see the prices only in $ even though in my settings it is set to EUR. I wanted to change the currecny to something else and then change it back to EUR but the field is not active and doesn't give me any options to choose from. This messes up my math.

Something has changed, unfortunately. I was wandering where my currency disappeared. Hopefully it won't last long because - as you said - this messes up the math a bit ^^ or a lot - in some cases. Furthermore, the prices in $ are not preferable for me. And I was about to consider buying a game... Let's predict they are going to fix it soon.

Put something in your basket, and go to checkout. It should reset the currency to Eur.
It seems to be a pretty commonly occurring bug recently.

Go on somewhere with your "free mentality" BS. Trump's tariffs don't even affect your country.
Wait a second, the update changed the local price for mexico back to the original US price, is this a bug?
We've updated exchange rates and the current ones are as follows:

5.99$ = 5.29 EUR = 4.79 GBP = 8.29 AUD = 409 RUB = 22.69 PLN = 53.90 SEK = 51.00 NOK = 39.40 DKK = 5.99 CHF = 8.00 CAD = 23.19 BRL = 41.00 CNY

9.99$ = 8.89 EUR = 7.89 GBP = 13.79 AUD = 669 RUB = 37.79 PLN = 89.90 SEK = 85.00 NOK = 65.70 DKK = 9.99 CHF = 13.39 CAD = 38.59 BRL = 68.00 CNY

14.99$ = 13.29 EUR = 11.79 GBP = 20.59 AUD = 1009 RUB = 56.69 PLN = 134.90 SEK = 127.60 NOK = 98.60 DKK = 14.99 CHF = 19.99 CAD = 57.89 BRL = 103.00 CNY

Why do you always do this right before big sales? :(((

EDIT: well, the new prices are cheaper in Sweden, Russia, and Brazil. Lucky them...

PeriSiggy: Any chance in the future for local pricing for Argentina? I know it's silly but I really wanna buy from GoG and...yeah...I'm a bit lucked out on the currency front XD
I came here to ask the same thing. Right now dollars seem the only option and it's a very expensive option.
