Good Old Games, aka GOG, has announced that it plans to take on Steam and Origin by selling copies of new gaming titles.
Traditionally GOG has only stocked games that are three years or older, however, that’s all about to change in 2012 when the DRM-free PC game retailer aims to start distributing more recent titles. Newer games are to be charged at a higher price point, which is fairly unsurprising considering they’re – y’know – new.
Praising the move, Managing Director of GOG.com, 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.”
