GOG Galazy

GOG Galaxy, the gaming client designed to take the hassle out of PC gaming, will exit beta with release version 1.2, GOG has announced.

The major addition of 1.2 is Universal Cloud Saves. The new feature makes it possible to add cloud saving functionality not only to new games, but also to titles that never offered cloud saving before. This means titles like Planescape: Torment, Dragon Age Origins, Heroes of Might & Magic III, and Vampire: the Masquerade Bloodlines will gain benefits of saves syncing and cloud backup for the first time ever. Cloud saves can also be backed up and used outside of the the GOG Galaxy client.

“Losing your save files can be really frustrating. And a big part of gaming legacy, including many of the greatest games, was missing cloud saves – until now,” explains Piotr Karwowski, Managing Director at “Thanks to the Universal Cloud Saves feature of GOG Galaxy, not only new games, but also the all-time classics and titles which development has been finished years ago, will be upgraded with saves syncing and cloud backup.”
