GOG.com is maybe not as big as Steam, but is surely a great alternative for VALVE’s giant, especially if you want to avoid DRM (Digital rights management) and ‘money-burning’ Steam sales. And GOG’s customers who will use the final version of Windows 10 will be happy to know that they’ll be able to play their games from GOG without any compatibility problems.

GOG.com recently released an announcement that provided us with all necessary details about service’s compatibility with upcoming Microsoft’s operating system. The post stated that testers from GOG’s team are constantly working on this, and that they’re very optimistic about the release of Windows 10.

“You have been asking on our forums, and now we are here with the official word! We’re getting ready for Windows 10 and putting our QA Team at full capacity to test the games we (and you!) are looking forward to play on the upcoming OS.”

GOG is short for Good Old Games and it is Polish distribution service for PC games and films. GOG is the subsidiary of CD Projekt, the company who also owns CD Projekt RED, developer of one of the most popular video game series today, The Witcher. GOG.com is especially popular because it offers video games to users through it’s DRM-free platform for Windows, OS X and Linux.

But since GOG is not as popular as Steam or Origin, it is in the interest of the company to keep up with trends, and Windows 10 will be extremely popular, every serious company should offer services compatible with this operating system.
