GOG celebrates 14 years with big sale, game giveaway and Skyrim release

By - | Views: 24,437

GOG are celebrating 14 years of existing with a big sale on lots of games, plus you can get a free copy of Master of Magic Classic.

For the giveaway, simply be logged in to GOG and scroll down to find the giveaway banner. They only have a build up for Windows but since it uses DOSBox you can easily run it nicely on Linux too. You can claim that game free until Sunday October 2nd, 10 PM UTC.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has also now landed on GOG with the Anniversary Edition and Special Edition. GOG said in their email that their version has been tweaked so you can get the Anniversary Edition content without the need for Creation Club access and naturally it's fully playable offline.

As for modding it GOG said:

As the game is recognized as one of the most modded titles in the history of video games, support for community-created content in Skyrim was one of our top priorities. The GOG version is compatible out of the box with most modifications mods via Nexus Mods Vortex v1.6.12 and newer. Support for mods requiring Skyrim Script Extender will be added later today. Additionally, GOG is preparing something special to provide an even smoother modding experience – expect more details soon.

The game has long worked in Wine / Proton so it's another option for you and good news for GOG fans.

As for the sale there's 900+ discounted so do let us know if you find a good deal.

Oh, Skyrim? It took them forever but good to see a DRM-free release for it.

I'm still annoyed that they didn't bother to fix the plant respawning in the 64 bits re-release.

I like the idea of supporting GOG, but they pretty much never have the best prices, often they are quite a bit higher. Skyrim Anniversary's best price to date is $16.98 and goes on sale directly on steam for $20. So paying $5~8 more for the option of DRAM free feels... almost dirty because it's basically telling me if I'm not going to be "using" the DRAM free aspect then I'm wasting money.

To be fair

GOG; Good Old Games

Anyway, glad to see GOG still going but.. I've promised myself I won't spend any more money on games for the time being.. so must.. not.. look.. at .. gog... website..

I don't know, I think that is a fair surcharge for actually being able to own the game indefinitely.

Just do what I do..... go there get the free game and leave and forget GOG exists till the next free game rinse and repeat......
Yay i guess would of been way more amped for this if it would of happened say in 2012 a year ater the game came out but now reached that point where i know every area of the map I can be level 24/25 before leaving whiterun hold and without cheating maxed out blade and armour. But if you ve never played it seems unlikely but if you ve never played it great time to get it.

I've never played it.

Reason: I have doubts Vanilla Skyrim would be better than nicely modded Morrowind. And mods on Linux aren't exactly easy to do for this series, so I never bought it.

If I can ever motivate myself to finish Witcher 3, maybe I'll buy it. I wont have the time to play like when I was able to play Morrowind, but maybe it'll be fun.
