New features, local currency option, new payment methods, store credit, and an updated look for!

For almost six years now we strive to bring you not only the best in DRM-Free gaming, but also to give you the greatest experience possible. To that end we're always looking for ways to improve our site and service. Today, we're rolling out a vastly updated version of our store with an improved interface, sleek new look, and lots of handy new features. Let's take a quick tour, shall we?

Video: Welcome to the fresher, better!

First of all we are giving you more DRM-free content: movies! We are starting with 20 documentaries about internet and gaming culture but we aim high! You can find more on this in the appropriate newspost, so let's focus on the other features we're rolling out.

We wanted to give you more choice as to how you pay for things on Now it's up to you if you want to pay in US Dollars, or in the currency primarily used in your country, whether it's the Euro, Pounds Sterling, Australian Dollars, or Russian Roubles. That's four new currencies supported by for your convenience. Still - the choice is yours, so if you want to stick to US dollars, just switch to it - you find this option at the bottom of each page. To make buying things at an even more flexible process, we're introducing some new payment methods: Sofort, Giropay, Webmoney, and Yandex.

All this also means that users for whom the local currency pricing has been enabled will have an option to select one of two different prices for each game in our catalog. Of course, we stand by the simple truth that $1 does not equal 1€, so a game with a $5.99 price tag will cost 4.49 Euro, 3.69 British Pounds, 6.49 Australian Dollars, and 219 Roubles respectively. $9.99 translates to 7.49 Euro, 5.99 Pounds Sterling, 10.89 Australian Dollars, and 359 Roubles. In a perfect world we would apply the same method of pricing to all of the games we offer. However, things are a little bit more complicated, and there are some games in our catalog that follow a different region-based pricing scheme. However, we wouldn't be if we didn't find a way to make right by the users who end up paying relatively more for such titles. Here's where the Fair Price Package comes in!

The Fair Price Package applies to all of the titles which we couldn't include in our standard pricing scheme. If you end up paying more for a game than its standard US Dollar price, we'll refund you the difference out of our own pocket. The refunded value will be added to your account in Store Credit in the currency of your purchase. That's right, no more gift codes, you'll be getting Store Credit that you can use to purchase anything on or partially pay for an item that's more expensive. More choice, ease of use, and less limitations!

Finally, the store has gotten itself a substantial visual revamp. We went for a fresh, mobile-friendly design that should make it even easier to find the games you want, notice the hot promos, and see what's new. The main page, catalog view, product pages, and checkout have been updated and also lay the groundwork for even more overhaul, coming within the next few months together with many of the GOG Galaxy features. We hope you like it!

PS. Unfortunately, we need to drop some titles from our classic catalog. In such cases, we always do our best to give you an advance warning and a last chance to purchase such games - preferably with a considerable discount. Check this news post to find out which titles are being removed from our catalog, when will it happen, and what parting discounts for them do we currently offer.

Can't complain and i hope you guys can get Legend of Korra and Avatar : The Last Airbender shows on GOG.
I've dated worse.
Sachys: Great improvement - the account page now takes forever to load and I have a phantom notifcation for... nothing! O__o

Edit: and it cost several pence more for games in £s than $s.
No, the notification is there for something, it just doesn't indicate which (forum answer, etc...). It does it for me too.

Also, where are the gift codes supposed to be, I had a couple myself.

Apart from that, can't think much of the new design, doesn't seem to bad I think. People don't like change so we'll see through using it to form an opinion. :)

Also, movies. This isn't a bad idea for the "diversification" of gog. Some of the movies may be bad, I dunno I haven't checked, but I'm curious of the idea. Gog could even do something like netflix that allows monthly streaming of whole catalogs of series. If done adequately, I'd give my money towards that. :D

Wait and see gog, but I like some of the things I'm seeing, despite the relative bad news.

Also, fair price package on ANY regionally priced game? Cool, that way we'll see at which point we're getting fucked by the publisher. Everyone should be happy. :)
RWarehall: Although I think you just tipped off what the code likely is.
Possibly... ;)

Oh, I didn't see all those answers as I was busy editing stuff on my post! Anyways, just found this option and changed prices to USD. However, the option isn't very evident right where it is. Maybe it should be moved to the settings tab or something?
Anyways, thank you everybody so much for the answers(Lillesort, Judas and Ababeb in that order)! Now I feel much better! :-)

P.S. Btw, I also didn't receive any answer notifications regarding these answers. It would be helpful if GOG re-enabled them...

Holy ♥♥♥♥, what happened?
Did I just enter the wrong room?
Mr.Caine: Ugh I hate the new design.The old one was genius in it's simplicity.
Same for me :) This seems to me like 'we do business for us not for you" design. Pity.

I was just comparing the old and new by using the way-back machine. Ignoring the cosmetic changes, I must say I enjoyed the functionality of the old site. You had all game categories clickable with no drop down menu. There is a link to see all games on sale in a single list. The rotating promo used game art for background. You could see all the new promos without hitting the scroll buttons. It just seemed to maximize the available space much better.
Alterego1972: It's a code for ask GOG a code for all the games ^^
Ah, so it's early access for this release. :)
I'm sure used to have prices down the right-hand side.
How to have the prize back in dollars?? I dont want to see the prize on euros... ¬¬
...Does this mean we should expect a GOG "app" soon? The only thing that makes sense about this is the ability to watch DRM free movies from mobile devices, although the games are not compatible the movies are. However, the site redesign seems like a big expense in good will to appeal to movie fans given the currently limited selection.

Nope - checked messages, replies, updates etc. NOTHING. o___O
I like that new GOG supports HTTPS better now, but it's still not without issues. Please fix this bug. For instance when you open , the page is secure, but all the links in the top bar are leading to the insecure pages.

For those who need a workaround for now, here is an HTTPS Everywhere rule:
