GOG Early Access Announced with Added Benefits

GOG has announced that it is getting into GOG Early Access which is basically selling video games that are still in development and go up for sale before they are finished.

This is something Valve’s Steam has been doing for some time, but GOG Early Access is a tad different from Steam Early Access. Firstly, every GOG game which is still in Early Access comes with 14-day no-questions-asked refund policy. Furthermore, all Early Access games will be DRM-free and users will be allowed to get a previous update if a new update breaks the game.

Speaking of this; GOG Managing Director Piotr Karwowski said:

As an added bonus, rollback actually stores historical snapshots throughout a game’s development. That means you can always revisit any point in the game’s history with a single click.

Karwowski continued by saying the company wanted GOG Early Access to work in a responsible way which is why they implemented the refund policy:

We want all gamers on GOG.com to have access to what these titles have to offer, but we want to get it right. [Which is why we are] carefully evaluating each and every game, offering a 14-day refund policy, and providing GOG Galaxy support with update rollback and more.
