GOG's Month of Activision: Week 5 releases

Posted by: Chad at 2/23/2010 11:16 AM
February just keeps getting better.  GOG has been releasing an increasing number of classic titles from Activision's catalogue of games.  Today, Gabriel Knight 2: The Beast Within ($5.99)was released on the service.  Thursday you'll be able to download King's Quest 4 + 5 + 6 ($9.99) and Call to Power 2 ($5.99).  Fans on the site sound pleased as it's been a pretty good month for GOG. 

Expect more releases in the future and we'll be sure to give you updates as we get them.  I am slightly confused; how could this be Week 5 of the "Month of Activision" when there are four weeks total in February?



The Beast Within, considered by many to be the best part of the Gabriel Knight series, is now available for $5.99. Finally, we're adding the King's Quest 4+5+6 pack and Call to Power 2 to the coming soon section.

Gabriel Knight 2 is a point-and-click adventure game but, unlike its prequel, it's created entirely in full motion video. The story picks up a year after GK1. Gabriel became a famous writer, accepted the title of Schattenjäger and inherited a castle in a small German village. The local villagers implored him to investigate the death of a local girl, which they believe was murdered by a werewolf. You'll be able to play as both Gabriel and Grace as they conduct separate investigations, which will see them visiting many fascinating places in Germany. Great acting, a fantastic story, memorable characters... Truly a must-have classic for any adventure game fan.
