Telltale Games has become the latest studio to sign up for GOG’s burgeoning DRM-free service. The episodic game publisher is dipping its feet in the water with its Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series, which is available now on the site and playable through the new GOG Galaxy Client.
While Telltale’s presence is kicking off with the current Game of Thrones series, which has just seen its fourth episode launched, it will be joined by the likes of Tales from the Borderlands, The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us soon.
“Thanks to GOG Galaxy, we’re able to bring in major new titles, and the award-winning Telltale series are a prime example of that”, said Guillaume Rambourg, Managing Director at GOG.com. “Gamers finally get to enjoy the engaging, story-driven adventures DRM-free: anywhere and at any time – but also benefit from achievements and other optional GOG Galaxy features if they want to. It’s the freedom of choice that GOG.com is all about.”
While some of Telltale’s older titles are already available on the DRM-free service, the move marks the first time a current series has begun arriving day and date with other stores. GOG definitely appears to be on the up right now, with it looking increasingly likely we’ve got a serious Steam competitor on our hands.
