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.

Looks fresh :)

I have to admit, I like the old web page better than the new one, the "New and Coming" tab is quite uncomfortable after the change, feels like I am going to miss new stuff.
Going to need a period of adjustment to the new website design, holding back on commenting one way or the other until it's seen some day-to-day use.

One concern I have that I'll voice now though is the sheer size of the bar across the top of the screen. Does it really need to be that obtrusive? Since it's mostly just text I really don't see the need for it to be that thick.

Other than that, it is nice to see GOG has been working on making the site more mobile-friendly. Using the site during the Insomnia sale on my phone while at work was a nightmare.
edit: zippo Witcher 1 codes. I think i had one or two gifts to put our forum BB league etc. Any chance of getting those back?

Happy to see the warning of games about to be removed.
Sad to see games are being removed.

Happy to see DRM free movies.
Curious to see what movies will come along. I may even have some suggestions.

Happy to see GOG is always trying to improve.
Sad to see yet another interface suffer due to being mobile friendly.

It's hard to describe, but the new home page feels sterile and cluttered at the same time. It also no longer has the GOG signature look, and just seems to resemble so many other sites that are out there. Seeing it makes me think of the new ShackNews page, Windows 8 Modern UI, and walking into a BrandsMart, none of which I like. UI developers, computers and mobile devices are not the same thing, please stop treating them like they are. Even more puzzling is that GOG doesn't even sell mobile apps. I have browsed GOG on my phone, and I never had a problem with it. It's actually listed as the most frequented web site on my phone. I just tried it on my phone too. Please change it back.
Alterego1972: Hello IAmSinistar, I can test your code. Happy for the new GOG, unhappy for all the games that are removed.
IAmSinistar: Code sent, let us know if there's actually anything there.

I'll be snapping up bundle codes for the games going away. I assume they will be good after the games are pulled, better check with a bluetext first though.
Code is Temporarily locked
RWarehall: I'm sure the 0 games one is Fallout.
Not just Fallout. I have another code with games removed from the catalog and it turned into a 0 games code as well. Hope they'll get it sorted out, because it was planed to be the code for day 100 of my giveaway :/

edit: I was wrong! It's still a 3 games code, but it contains NOTHING! ;)

Alterego1972: Code is Temporarily locked
Hmm, okay, maybe try it again in about 15 minutes? I tried it myself when it first appeared to be glitchy, so the server may have a lock on it from that. Hopefully the lock will clear soon.
Looks good, but doesn't mark owned games and that's a big deal...
New site-look looks o.k. to me but I miss the prices in my wishlist.
Telika: Somebody on gog has a grey fetish.

One thing that I love-adore-worship on GOG, and that is generally unsung, is the art for the game cards. And generally the art, on the website. And I loved how it was integrated to the web page's background. NOW EVERYTHING IS LOCKED IN LITTLE TILES, JAILED AND COMPARTMENTED LIKE SOME SORT OF SWISS IDEAL OF ORDER AND TIDYNESS. WHAT'S WITH THAT.



Edit here too :

On a closer look, there seems to be some bleeding to the what's new tile over the backdrop. Most of the news just spread a vague tint around, but there's some half-covered hint of imade when it comes to wastelands 2. So, yay, the images RESIST, and FIGHT BACK ! Break down the walls !!
I enjoyed this post more than the changes :thumbsup:

I never asked for this.
Am I right in having the impression that notifications no longer tell you which part of the Account dropdown menu you should click on?
I can't see which games I already own in the games section?
Or did I miss something?
I hope this feature gets added soon, again.
gandalf.nho: Guess the "no regional price" guys won, but at the same time GOG lost a lot of good games with that...
wrong. the regional pricing has not changed - read the original post. now it is just 'have some store credit to make up for it'

The games disappearing are something else.
