Good Old Games has something new up its sleeve

11/17/11 8:40pm

GOG.com has some shiny new plans to take on Valve's Steam and EA's Origin, starting with some shiny new games.

Along with the classic games its known for, Good Old Games will begin to offer new titles through it's DRM-free distribution service for 2012 and 2013. 

"Traditionally, GOG.com has looked for great classics that are three years old or older," managing director Guillaume Rambourg said. "We will continue to add classic games, of course, but we are actively working to sign newer titles now. Of course, these new titles will have to come at a new, higher price point, but our key focus will always be on the same core values that have made GOG.com great so far: completely DRM-free games, flat prices everywhere in the world, and extra content and goodies for our fantastic customers."

GOG.com plans to have over 400 games by the end of 2012, and hopes to sign exclusive releases:

"Finally, we want to work closely with ambitious developers and independent publishers who feel a kinship with that 'good old spirit' that GOG.com embodies," Rambourg said. "Thanks to the commercial success of The Witcher 2 on GOG.com, more and more people realize that our values are universal." he continued. "They are coming to GOG and asking if we can carry their titles. We've made GOG.com the destination for classic PC games, but now is the time to take this to the next level and emerge as the best alternative digital distribution platform for all PC games."

It's all to reach their goal of becoming the second-largest independent digital games distributor on the web.
