GOG.com Lands Alan Wake, Puts it on Sale
It was cool when GOG.com announced they were adding newer games to the site. After all, more games available at a good price, DRM-free is never a bad thing.
The only problem was that other than a few indie games, the newer stuff was all four or five years old and available cheap elsewhere.
That changed a bit today with the addition of Alan Wake to the site’s catalog. It was a big deal when it landed on the Xbox 360 a couple of years ago, and generally really well received too. But the PC version of Alan Wake first appeared on Steam just three months ago. In fact, it just hit physical retail a few weeks ago, so while not a same day release, I think they can go ahead and call it “new” instead of “newer” with a clear conscience.
While the normal price of $29.99 is the same as the Steam price, GOG is launching it on sale for $14.99. Pretty good deal really. The sale only runs through the morning of May 15 though, so if you want it at this price, grab it soon.
Included with the GOG version are most of the goodies that come with the Collector’s Edition elsewhere ($34.99 on Steam), with the rather sad omission of the game’s soundtrack. GOG usually manages to land those as a bonus, so it must have just been some weird licensing thing this time around. Too bad.
