GOG to Pursue New Games As Well As Old Ones to Battle Steam, Origin

GOG.com wants to be the second-biggest supplier of digital PC games in the industry, and while offering old-ass games for good prices is nice, it isn’t necessarily helping the service expand.

So GOG is going to increase its plans to bring new releases to its DRM-free distribution portal, in addition to continuing to supply the “good old games” for which the service is known, according to a story from Eurogamer. That’ll put it on-pace to compete with steam and EA’s new portal, Origin, but it’ll also mean a new, higher price point for new games.

The service will continue to offer its games DRM-free, including the new ones, and GOG says it’ll bring some 400 new games to its library by the end of 2012. The success of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings showed seems to have showed the service that people want DRM-free titles (you could only get The Witcher 2 DRM-free on GOG), so it stands to reason that expanding in that direction will bring in more customers.
