GOG Galaxy has been added to the Epic Games Store
Unlike consoles, PC gamers have many options to choose from when it comes to video game stores and customers. Two of the biggest are the Epic Games Store and CD Projekt’s GOG Galaxy. In an interesting move from both parties, GOG Galaxy is now available for download through the Epic Games Store.
Go to the Epic Games store, you can now find a GOG Galaxy app available for download. For the uninitiated, GOG Galaxy is a PC game launcher which allows you to “Discover a hand-picked selection of good old games and great modern releases you can play offline. Build your cross-platform library – launch, play, and manage your games from GOG, Epic Games, and more.
As mentioned in the description, one of the main features of GOG Galaxy is the ability for the client to be used to access other non-GOG games, including from Epic Games Store.
While this addition makes some sense, it’s still odd to see the Epic Games Store PC client and storefront allowing you to download the competing GOG Galaxy game client.
Between now and early November, players can get their hands on two free games (Genesis Alpha One Deluxe Edition and Jazz Jackrabbit 2 Collection) by downloading GOG Galaxy through Epic Games. It will be interesting to see how the relationship between these two competing customers compares over time.
