GOG returning to regional pricing for upcoming games

New, 31 comments

GOG.com will offer regional pricing for the release of several titles from "bigger studios," according to a recent post on its site.

Referencing regional pricing in regard to sales for The Witcher 2, the post explains that the game was listed differently in the U.S., the U.K., the European Union and Australia.

"We're doing something like that once again in order to bring you new titles from fantastic bigger studios," the post reads. "Since we don't accept currencies other than USD on GOG.com right now, we'll be charging the equivalent of the local price in USD for these titles.

"We wish that we could offer these games at flat prices everywhere in the world, but the decision on pricing is always in our partners' hands, and regional pricing is becoming the standard around the globe. We're doing this because we believe that there's no better way to accomplish our overall goals for DRM-Free gaming and GOG.com."

GOG plans to release two role-playing games and a strategy game with regional pricing. Although the post does not name the upcoming titles, it also mentions that anyone who pre-orders or buys them will receive, for a limited-time, a free game from a specific selection.
