Get Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun free during the GOG Winter Sale

By - | Views: 14,835

GOG have put up their Winter Sale and it's a good chance to not only grab some cheap games but also get a free copy of the truly excellent Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun.

For the giveaway, scroll down a bit on the GOG.com homepage and find the giveaway banner. Click it when logged in and it will add it to your GOG library. I do love a free game, especially when it's as good as Shadow Tactics. The free game will be up until December 15th, at 2 PM UTC. However, there will be another giveaway on December 16 but they haven't said what game it will be.

The GOG team also put up a few lists for the sale including:

More classics have arrived too with the RTS games Star Trek Armada and Star Trek Armada II. Only officially for Windows as expected but they are old enough to likely run without issues in the Wine compatibility layer.

Expect more new releases and limited time flash deals during the sale.

Additionally, GOG have revamped their main game list pages. See all discounted games here.

The GOG Winter Sale lasts until January 5th, at 2 pm UTC.

I don't check GOG regularly and would never know about these giveaways if it wasn't for GOL, thanks again! :D

I bought a bunch of GOG games a while, and then upon trying to install them in WINE I just wished that they had Steam counter-parts.

Do you install via Lutris? The community install scripts tend to work well for a lot of GoG stuff and you can link it directly to your GoG account.

Half the time I try a giveaway I find the game is already in my library.

Do you have an script or a program for create GOL affiliate links from a gog game link?
example: I put https://www.gog.com/game/cyberpunk_2077 into the program and the address is converted to https://af.gog.com/game/cyberpunk_2077?as=1636858786
