Digital distribution service GOG, formerly known as Good Old Games, has just added three new games to its portfolio, including two classic titles, in the form of Thief: Deadly Shadows and Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell, as well as the newer Anomaly: Warzone Earth.
GOG started off by offering older titles without any sort of DRM protection and optimized to run on current day PCs and operating systems.
Now, the service is slowly branching out
by offering newer titles, alongside classic experiences.
We’ve already seen quite a few recent titles appear on the service, and now three new games are available through GOG.
The first is Thief: Deadly Shadows, the latest installment in the popular stealth-based series, which joins existing titles like Thief and Thief II: The Metal Age. “Thief: Deadly Shadows has been especially praised for its exceptionally refined standard of lighting, graphics, level design, and--of course--immersive gameplay,” GOG said about the game. “Sound effects, music, and voice acting are top-notch, and the game looks and feels better than ever with a dynamic lighting and shadow system, and the possibility to switch between first person and third person mode. The story, the dark and tense atmosphere, the visual appearance, the thrill--everything you wished for in a 3D sneaker is here.”
Thief: Deadly Shadows is available for $9.99 (€7.59) on GOG and you’ll get not just the game but also the soundtrack, design sketches, avatars, wallpapers and a manual.
For those who want even more stealth-based experiences, the classic Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell is also available on GOG right now. “Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell was an incredible arrival in the action-sneaker genre when it showed up in 2002: it had a fantastic plot that read like a techno-thriller from genre master Tom Clancy, the gameplay’s emphasis on light and shadow, high-tech toys, and careful planning interspersed with bursts of lethal action, and the impressive Unreal Engine 2 graphics all made this game a blockbuster success.”
The game is also available for $9.99 and you’ll receive a manual plus a reference sheet with your purchase.
Last but not least, the more recent Anomaly: Warzone Earth is also available on GOG, with users being able to experience this tower offense game right now. “Anomaly: Warzone Earth sports a top-down 3D view of the battlefield, with surprising amount of details, like dust storms, abandoned cars, and destroyed city streets. What’s best is that even though Anomaly is a 2011 game, it will not put too much strain on your hardware, and that speaks highly of 11BitStudios programming expertise.”
Anomaly: Warzone Earth is available for just $9.99 and you’ll also receive extra things like the soundtrack, wallpapers, avatars, and some special artworks.
