DRM-Free PC Game of Thrones Hits GOG

DRM-free versions of Tales from the Borderlands, The Wolf Among Us, and The Walking Dead coming later.


The Witcher developer CD Projekt Red's PC online store, GOG, has announced a new publishing deal with Telltale Games to bring The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones studio's past and future games to the platform. The first of these games, Game of Thrones, is now available--and at a nice, 40 percent discount.

That means you can buy the six-episode series, normally $30, for just $18. As with all GOG games, there is no form of DRM applied to Game of Thrones.

Other Telltale titles are coming "soon," including The Wolf Among Us, Tales from the Borderlands, and every season of The Walking Dead.

GOG notes that this is the first time Telltale titles are being released without DRM. The games will also include support for GOG's new, Steam-like GOG Galaxy. They will take full advantage of the platform's new features, including one-click installation, automatic updating, achievements, and more.

The 40 percent launch discount for Telltale's Game of Thrones runs through May 30.

The fourth episode in the series, Sons of Winter, was released earlier this week. GameSpot critic Alexa Ray Corriea wrote in her 5/10 review: "As Telltale's Game of Thrones passes its halfway mark, it takes a bit of a dip, staging a set of scenes that feels less like something you can control and more like something you can only passively watch. There's no sense of agency in the choices you are offered; you simply spin a conversation in a certain direction before arriving at a pre-determined outcome."
