GOG has beaten Steam to the punch with a summer sale, live now on the digital retailer's website.
Head over to GOG.com to start checking out the first gaming deals of the company's "2015 DRM-Free Summer Sale", featuring discounts across a wide variety of titles.
For those who don't know, DRM stands for Digital Rights Management, an anti-piracy tool that requires consumers to authenticate purchases online or sign into a client to play a game. GOG has a DRM-free philosophy, not wanting to make legitimate buyers jump through hoops to play games they legally purchased.
As for the gaming deals, there are already sales on some great titles for the promotion's first day. The new and incredibly highly-acclaimed Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is on sale for $53.99. The game's developer CD Projekt owns GOG, which leads to many heavily discounted Witcher offers--The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings is only $2.99, and the first game in the series is $1.49.
There is a bundled deal on Lucasfilm adventure games as well, which offers a bigger discount if you buy all seven of its included titles together. You can get The Secret of Monkey Island, The Secret of Monkey Island 2, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, Sam & Max Hit the Road, Loom, The Dig, and Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders all together for just $16.61.
GOG is also selling bundles for franchises like D&D, Heroes of Might and Magic, and S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Individual titles such as Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series, Mount & Blade, Jade Empire, and more are also on sale--head over and take advantage of any discounts that interest you while the offers last! New deals are hitting in 20 hours, with a countdown timer at the top of the main page.
