GOG.com Announces Support for Windows 8
GOG.com – the digital distributor earlier known as Good Old Games – has announced that 90% of the game titles available on their catalogue are now compatible with the recently released operating system Windows 8.
According to a news post on the official website of GOG.com, the company have tested and fixed 431 gaming titles in an effort to fully support Microsoft’s new operating system. Further it says that because of the fixes, the amount of Windows 7 compatible games has also increased.
“The majority of games that we support for Windows 7 work on Microsoft’s new OS already,” said Guillaume Rambourg, managing director of GOG.com, “but we’ve also put hard work into updating many of the titles that may be harder to get running under the new Windows as well. The result of re-testing and updating our entire catalogue is evident now with our official support of Windows 8.
“Gamers who are looking for a great opportunity to pick up the best games in history on their new OS will surely find something for them in the newly-updated GOG.com catalogue.”
So, if you are a hardcore gamer and have been holding off on Windows 8 for the fear that it would be unable to play your favorite gaming titles from GOG.com, you no longer have any reasons to worry.
GOG.com will also be updating their game titles catalog to allow users to search for games that are localized into languages other than English. The catalog will have more than a dozen different languages that users can filter by, including German, French, Italian, Spanish, Russian, Czech, and Turkish.
