GOG, another video games distribution platform that has gained popularity in recent times, is now offering its user-base the option of importing some of their Steam games to the service.
Called GOG Connect, CD Projekt RED stated in a press release that there was simply no reason for its users to buy a specific game more than once. Users mostly have the tendency to maintain their major games library on a single platform. Hence, those favoring Steam will always opt to purchase new games on that platform and vice versa, unless there’s some very attractive discounted deal on the horizon. GOG Connect ensures that players won’t have to deal with that issue any more, and can just choose to move their games over to the Polish platform.
According to the announcement, GOG Connect currently caters to just over twenty games. However, the platform owner plans to add support for GOG Connect to more games with time. It’s important to consider the fact that there are well over 5,000 games on Steam and it would be unprecedented for GOG to allow importing of each one of them.
Here are some of the games that you can import from Steam to GOG:
- FTL: Faster Than Light
- Galactic Civilizations 3
- Saints Row 2
- Shadowrun Returns
- The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing: Final Cut
- The Witcher: Enhanced Edition
- The Witness
- Trine Enchanted Edition
In order to be able to connect your Steam and GOG libraries for importing, you need to be signed into your Steam account at this page. Once done, you should be able to easily bring in your eligible purchases.
Do note that the process is only going to cater to a single Steam account per GOG user. This means that your GOG library is going to be able to link to only a single Steam account, and this process is permanent.
