So GOG has this game yet it has DRM? Expensive and deceptive....
I don't think it has DRM right now. "Online features" (if one may call it that) are gone (and their re-implementation is not there yet) and all the content can be accessed via mods.
That being said, I'm against devs' plans to bar some content (unique ships) beside Ventures in the future.
About the price of the game: Yes, it is not cheap but it has a lot of game.
Still cheaper than Stellaris. :)
