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.

Dt3r: Nothing against the new design, but you guys broke the wishlist page. It no longer shows prices.
I've seen some broken things being fixed still, I hope that's one.
Holy hell! I took a break to get other stuff done. And Wham, I'm smacked with what looks like a new site. I will need to take a look around first before reserving judgement.
Sweet new design! I like it!
I am gonna miss the old green and yellow logo but I will get over it.
Why so serious gog? Is fun not allowed in a game (+movies) online shop?
Beroga: Continuing this phase shift, Uplay should go orange, Origin green, GMG red, Humble Bundle pink I guess (for the hell of it), and so on and so forth (¬‿¬)
Hecke: Well, IMHO the colorchange in Steam is decent and frames the client window (at least for now, don't know what will happen), so it could be way worse...
It does look nice indeed, although percolating flatness (e.g. achievement progress bar) reeks of "Look how we nicely integrate with Windows 8", when imho they should be focusing on making it look more GNOME'y, but that's just my internal penguin talking.
So are there actually going to be any more good classic games on here now, or is it all going to be new indie rubbish?

The new site design hit me like a bucket of cold water to the face, which probably isn't a good thing. Movies? Are many people going to watch the awful selection on offer? Couldn't we just have had Tie Fighter and Grim Fandango instead?

I like the new fair pricing policy. it's flexible compared to the game coupons version.

Also the design - as people are resistant to change I hope the metrics reveal better usability and goal achievement.
New site is so clumsy :(
All of the paddings and empty space really annoy me. Font looks awful. And they are too large.
Checkout page is awful. Instead of two easy accessible compact lists("Games bought together" and "Wishlisted games") on the right side, we now have one useless and too large below.
Page, where you get redirected after purchase is bad too.
**EDIT** SOLVED. Thank you GOG!!!!

I have a problem with my gifts. Some have dissappeared and one that was redeemed (earlier today) looks unredeemed.....
The new look puzzles me. I dislike the tile system in general......

One thing that makes me happy is that pressing "back" on chrome now updates the previous page with the posts I've read. Cool!

Horrible new design.
Please go back to the tried and tested or make an option to do so available
It's a bit like getting home late one night, only to learn your wife decided to undergo plastic surgery while you were away. Oh well.
Anyhow, it looks a bit cold, doesn't it?
Not one to get overly excited about much of anything but .....


I love the push into film, even if it is a very conservative one toe in to test the waters.

A logical step and one I am damned glad to see GOG make. I sort of expected a site revamp with the galaxy launch. However so far not really loving the web layout, though like with most webpages, revamps usually take several attempts to work out all the kinks So it should in time become more intuitive and less seemingly invisible resource demanding.(though maybe its just limitations of my laptop vs actual desktop.)

Anyway, Thank you for moving to this next venue, and please keep bringing the good of Digital distribution everywhere it NEEDS to be.
I don't mind the new design.
I very much mind that the games catalogue no longer show if I own those games I already owned.
Huge surprise, but hey ! Good surprise ! I like it, something simple and clear but beautiful to look. Good work !
It will take some time untill I get used to the new layout. Let's see...
