GOG: Black Friday discount campaign starts with free play


Immediately after this year's Steam autumn campaign, the obligatory discount battle will also begin in the DRM-free store GOG, just in time for Black Friday. In addition to “more than 4,000 offers with up to 90 percent discount”, there are free games and the option of putting together your own bundles.

Discounted offers and free games

Since yesterday, visitors to GOG or the associated launcher GOG Galaxy have been greeted with a corresponding announcement. The Black Friday campaign runs until midnight on November 30, as a corresponding timer on the website reveals. However, Narita Boy can only be added to your own library free of charge for just under 24 hours, provided users agree to receive marketing e-mails.

Narita Boy is a 2021 action-adventure game with an 80s aesthetic. The recommended retail price of the 2D sidescroller is around 25 euros. There will be another free game afterwards – but GOG has not yet revealed which title it is.

Among the offers, Europa Universalis IV stands out with a discount of 80 percent, which is newly released on GOG and is therefore available without copy protection for the first time. All DLCs are also offered, but only reduced by 50 percent. Also worth mentioning is the Game of the Year Edition of The Witcher 3, which includes both addons and is offered at a discount of 80 percent for 10 euros – in view of the forthcoming and free next-gen update with 4K textures, ray tracing , DLSS and FSR 2.0 a very good offer. Cyberpunk 2077 (test) is again discounted by 50 percent and costs 30 euros.

Three collections for your own bundles

< p class="p text-width">GOG also points out the possibility of putting together individual bundles. Interested parties can choose games from the three curated categories “Indie Collection”, “RPG Collection” and “Timeless Classics” to receive an additional discount based on the number of games in the shopping cart.

The editors would like to thank numerous readers for pointing out this message.
