GOG Galaxy 2.0 Is Now in Open Beta and Available to Everyone
The main goal of GOG Galaxy 2.0 is to allow users to keep a single launcher instead of having to juggle multiple launchers, from Steam to Origin, from UPlay to Epic Games store and so on.
Piotr Karwowski, Managing Director at GOG, said in a statement:
For the past few years, we’ve seen continuous fragmentation of our game collections and gaming friends lists, further proving the need for an application that unites them all. And I’m sure there are even more clients and launchers on the way. We’re amazed and thankful for the reaction from the community to the app and taking it even further by creating integrations with 20 gaming platforms – allowing everyone to see all their games and friends in GOG GALAXY 2.0.
