The GOG Winter Sale is live from now until February 1, 2020. Here are the best deals.
GOG – or Good Old Games, to use its Sunday name – is the digital storefront of CD Projekt Red, the developer and publisher behind The Witcher and Cyberpunk: 2077, among others. Its business model was originally built around classic games that were no longer easy to purchase, and games that are free of digital rights management (or DRM).
But in recent years, and in support of CD Projekt Red’s publishing ambitions, GOG has grown from a specialist boutique into a variety digital storefront, like Steam, Humble, or Epic Games. And a big shop means big sales. Here are the best deals from GOG’s Winter Sale.
- The Wasteland Series: We did a whole other article on this, but Wasteland 2: Director’s Cut is free right now. This deal also includes the original Wasteland.
- The Divinity Series: Divinity: Original Sin and Divinity: Original Sin 2 are two of the most critically acclaimed RPGs of the last decade. During the Winter Sale, the Enhanced Edition of DOS is going for $13.99 (from $39.99) and the Collector’s Edition is on sale for $20.99 (from $69.99). You can also grab DOS2 at a steep discount. Each version is on sale for 40-50 per cent off. That’s $24.69 for the Definitive Edition (from $44.99), $44.99 for the Eternal Edition (from $89.99) and $35.99 for the Divine Edition (from $59.99).
- Additionally, you can grab all of the Divinity games from before the series got really good – Divine Divinity, Beyond Divinity, Divinity 2: Developer’s Cut and three different versions of Divinity: Dragon Commander – for less than $13, total. They’re at the bottom of this page.
- Paradox Games: Five games from the strategy publisher are available at a steep discount right now. Age of Wonders: Planetfall typically retails for $49.99 and is on sale for $25.12. Stellaris is discounted down to $7.50 from $39.99. Battletech is $10.20 from $39.99. Imperator: Rome is normally $39.99, but is now $20.09. And, if you missed Surviving Mars when it was free on the Epic Games Store, you can get it now for $7.50 (down from $29.99).
- A Plague Tale: Innocence: A Plague Tale: Innocence is one of the best games of the year and it’s half-off on GOG right now. Asobo Studio’s third-person stealth game usually goes for $44.99, but you can get it for $22.49. It’s like The Last of Us or Tomb Raider, but set during the Black Death, and from a smaller team.
- Virginia: Variable State’s X-Files-esque walking sim is discounted from $9.99 down to just $0.99.
- Anodyne: Same here. This acclaimed Zelda-like is down from $9.99 to $0.99.
- Pathologic Classic HD: Pathologic got a prickly sequel this year, that made little money but inspired heaps of praise from certain critics. Right now, you can pick up the original for $1.29 (10% of the usual $12.99 asking price).
- Layers of Fear 2: Bloober Team’s second-best game (after the excellent Observer) is half off. You can grab this spooky ocean voyage for $14.99 (from $29.99).
