GOG Galaxy Will Finally Receive Cloud Saves and Other Features

GOG

CD Projekt’s digital distribution platform GOG Galaxy will soon leave beta and update to version 1.2. Normally, such an event would not be cause for celebration, but the update’s prominent features, including much-awaited cloud saves, beg to differ.

CD Projekt touts GOG Galaxy as a rival to bigger digital distribution platforms, including Steam, Origin, and Uplay. Unlike those platforms, games offered through GOG Galaxy are DRM-free (i.e., players don’t actually have to download the GOG Galaxy client to play games they purchase on the GOG website) and come with numerous extras. For example, people who buy The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on Steam or Origin also receive artwork, the game soundtrack, a digital art book, premium wallpapers, and a digital map of the game world. The GOG Galaxy version of The Witcher 3 offers all of the above in addition to papercraft toys, a compendium of The Witcher universe, HD Videos, avatars, and a digital comic book. While Galaxy’s extras might tempt some gamers, the platform currently lacks various features some PC gamers find necessary, such as cloud saves. However, GOG Galaxy version 1.2 aims to rectify this problem.

The highlight of GOG Galaxy version 1.2 is its universal cloud saves. Most Steam, Origin, and Uplay games come with cloud save functionality, but many older games, such as the Legacy of Kain franchise and Shadow Man, and some modern titles, including Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition, lack this feature. CD Projekt promises that GOG Galaxy’s cloud service will apply to all games available on the platform, without exception. Yes, even games that predate the internet.

GOG Galaxy 1.2 will also provide various smaller features, some of which are not available in other digital distribution platforms. These features include but are not limited to:

  • An in-game overlay
  • A bandwidth limiter and scheduler to decrease download speeds when gamers want to download or upload more pertinent files
  • A new chat service
  • A screenshot capture function
  • Desktop notifications
  • The ability to know the rarity of various achievements
  • An FPS counter
  • A new settings window
  • A hibernation mode that limits GOG Galaxy’s CPU usage when idle or during gameplay
  • The ability to activate and deactivate various features to customize each player’s experience

The GOG Galaxy version 1.2 update is scheduled to launch sometime in April.

All you have to do to get my attention is talk about video games, technology, anime, and/or Dungeons & Dragons - also people in spandex fighting rubber suited monsters.

Helldivers 2 has seen a rapid rise in popularity, presenting both opportunities and challenges for Arrowhead Game Studio. Although one could argue that the studio has produced a modern masterpiece, Helldivers 2 is still prone to persistent connection issues. Players who have shown great patience with the ongoing server issues in the game are now starting to clash, focusing on personal gain instead of uniting for the success of Super Earth.

IGN reported that players are pleading with Arrowhead to include an AFK auto-kick feature on the Helldivers subreddit. This request comes after some players confessed to remaining logged in to continue playing and bypass the unpredictable server connection process. This issue requires an urgent resolution.

The leader of Arrowhead, Johan Pilestedt, was informed about the problem and assured that the developers were investigating the situation. “I have already communicated this to the team,” Pilestedt confirmed. Regarding Helldivers updates, Xbox players are now petitioning Arrowhead to release the game on their platform after comments from Xbox boss Phil Spencer about the game’s exclusivity.

Respawn’s Star Wars Jedi series has garnered significant acclaim from players, with Cal Kestis’ gripping journey of survival serving as a focal point. Actor Cameron Monaghan, renowned for his portrayal of Kestis in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Survivor, has expressed his openness to bringing the character to life in a live-action adaptation. However, Monaghan emphasizes that certain conditions must be met for him to consider reprising the role.

During a panel at FanExpo Vancouver 2024, Monaghan, known for his roles in Shameless and Gotham, provided insight into his perspective. While many actors would eagerly seize any opportunity to join the Star Wars universe, Monaghan’s willingness to portray Kestis in live-action hinges on the narrative significance and continuation of the character’s story. Merely appearing as a superficial presence would not align with his vision; there must be substantial meaning and relevance for Kestis within the context of the story.

As anticipation builds for a potential third installment in the Star Wars Jedi series, Respawn Entertainment’s reported development of a first-person Mandalorian game raises intriguing possibilities. Could Kestis find himself embarking on new adventures within this immersive gaming experience?

Fans are speculating and curious about the possibility of a live-action Star Wars movie starring Dominic Monaghan. Would such a project capture your interest? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
