GOG revives Alpha Protocol along with a Spring Sale

By - | Views: 35,603

After being removed from various stores back in 2019, GOG have revived Alpha Protocol from Obsidian Entertainment along with the launch of their own Spring Sale. The original removal was due to expired music rights.

In regards to the release GOG said "With conjoined forces of GOG, Obsidian Entertainment and SEGA, we’ve made sure to make it better than ever; compatible with modern PCs, with licensed soundtrack and performance improvements that are sure to make this timeless classic, yet again, your favorite spy story".

To go along with the re-release GOG also worked with Raycevick to produce a video on reviving it:

You can try out Heroic or Lutris to help you manage games for GOG on Linux Desktop and Steam Deck.

I bought Elvira's Horror Bundle. That's all I'm spending on this GOG sale, I think. lol

I remember the day Alpha Protocol came out. I had the day off work and I played through the entire campaign over the course of nearly fifteen straight hours minus food and bathroom breaks. It was janky in spots, as many Obsidian games are, but it was so much fun.

I never played Alpha Protocol, but people really seem to think it's amazing, and I adore Obsidian, so ....... I'm really tempted to pick this up.

but ........

I wonder if they'll ever put this version up on Steam in the future because I'm sure there will be enough people that want to buy this game for those that missed out on it before the delisting.

"There are over 27 thousand abandonware games in world-wide circulation. That is more than half of Steam's current library"
Great, we're one sentence in and I already don't trust this video

I wish it was on Steam. I basically quit buying games from GOG a couple years ago because it was easier just playing games in Steam. Still, I'm glad to see GOG do this, and I'm willing to buy it.

It is much easier in steam, however I have had good success just using Heroic to do all my gog playing. You can just use whatever the most recent GEProton is by default for all games. Not AS easy as steam, but kind of close.

This is true. I did all of Horizon 1 before he was born. I'll take this to heart.

Yeah. Although, especially once he gets a bit older, a bit of balance is important too. It's important to still have your own life--and not just important to you, but in some ways important to him as well.
