When GOG set out to design its beautiful GALAXY 2.0 launcher, it envisioned an app that could tie together all of the major gaming platforms and storefronts, allowing users to browse, launch, and manage their libraries in a single location. That dream has gotten closer today with the official integration of the Epic Games Store, which, as GOG SVP Oleg Klapovsky explains, is already one of Galaxy 2.0’s most popular apps.
“We’re happy to add to GOG GALAXY 2.0 the official integration with Epic Games Store, which is the second most connected external platform in the app,” Klapovsky said. “Together with GOG.COM and Xbox Live, those official integrations are bringing a more seamless and reliable experience to gamers.”
Previously, GOG’s GALAXY 2.0 launcher only featured the Epic Games Store as a open-source, “community” integration, which meant that there wasn’t an actual support agreement with Epic in place. Now that Epic Games Store support is official, we should expect a more seamless and reliable experience between both platforms.
“We’re excited that Epic Games Store integration has come to GOG GALAXY 2.0,” added Steve Allison, General Manager of the Epic Games Store. “It’s an important step towards breaking down walls between PC stores, as it enables a unified experience for players to manage their PC games library independent of where their games were purchased.”
“The new official integration is the latest addition to GOG GALAXY 2.0, which we’re constantly improving with features requested by gamers. One of the recently added was the ability to see all your gaming subscriptions in one place. It helps gamers to conveniently browse, install, and launch games from an overwhelming amount of titles available on each subscription.”
