Good Old Games Opens Early Access Beta to All Comers

Good Old Games or GOG.com is rewarding its fan community for its support by offering keys to the Early Access Beta to anyone who wants one. Everyone who has signed up at the GOG.com website should look for a key in your email over the next week. The beta version of the site works just like the final version, offering players a chance to purchase DRM-free PC classics from this new games-on-demand platform.

“We want to reward everyone who showed us support, and thus decided to give everyone access to the beta site. Of course this meant we had to add all sorts of finishing touches to the site and test the new payment system, which caused a small delay. We used that extra time well and now we can provide players with the best GOG.com experience possibleā€¦ until, you know, we make it even better,” said Adam Oldakowski, Managing Director of GOG.com.

“We have prepared about 30 acclaimed titles from Interplay and Codemasters at this stage, but we’ll add more every week. Aside from buying games, all users will be able to join the community, add comments, write reviews and download additional materials for the games they bought. It’s a beta that works just like the final site will,” said Oldakowski.

GOG.com is offering a buy one, get one free incentive during the Early Access Beta. Anyone who purchases a game will get a bonus code to trade for any Interplay game in the GOG.com catalog like Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel. If you want to get in early on this deal, you have until the end of the closed press beta September 7th to visit the www.gog.com and get registered.

should be a cool service once it gets into its own, especially if it isn’t a steam style subscription service.

you know those mother ers, they didn’t give me my key.
Also Thor, steam isn’t a subscription service dude… and all it (gog) is is a website, no client to install other than the game itself.

do some reading.
