GOG.com now Windows 8 compatible

by: Sean Cahill -
As expected, websites have been making sure that they are compatible with the launch of Microsoft's new operating system, Windows 8.  GOG.com has followed suit, like many others, and announced that they are adding in their own support for the OS.  For those who are unfamiliar with the website, GOG.com offers DRM-free distribution of games at very low prices, so whether you are a veteran of the site or a newcomer, rest assured that if that shiny new laptop just arrived for the holidays, there will be no problems.
GOG.com, the DRM-free digital distributor specializing in legendary fun at legendary prices, announces today that it is officially adding Windows 8 support to the platform for more than 430 titles, with more to come in the upcoming months. As part of its mission to bring the best games in history to PC and Mac gamers, the service has added the new OS to its service. 

"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 catalog 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 catalog."

GOG.com will also be updating their catalog to allow users who want to search for games which are localized into languages other than English. Starting on 29 November 2012, the catalog will have more than a dozen different languages that users can filter by, including German, French, Italian, Spanish, Russian, Czech, and Turkish.
