GOG.com has added Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment titles to its catalog of DRM-free games.
A total of six WBIE games have been added to GOG’s catalog, five of which will be receiving discounts during their launch week.
- Mortal Kombat 1-3 Bundle
- LEGO Batman (-50%)
- LEGO Harry Potter Years 1-4 (-60%)
- LEGO Harry Potter Years 5-7 (-60%)
- F.E.A.R.: First Encounter Assault Recon - The Complete Trilogy (-50%)
- Bastion (-60%)
GOG.com’s VP of business development and operations Oleg Klapovsky hints at more WBIE games being added to the website’s catalog in the future. “We are very happy to see another of the gaming's juggernauts venture into the DRM-free waters with us." he writes in a prepared statement. "Together with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, we are planning on more exciting releases, so stay tuned!"
This is certainly a good first step for GOG.com as WBIE has certainly been publishing some big-name games over the past couple of years. Bastion would certainly be my most recommended out of the group considering it’s discounted at 60% and it’s such a unique and inspired game.

I find the success of GOG's store to be rather interesting. I bought a copy of Galactic Civilizations II simply because of all the hype about it being sold DRM-free. I thought that was awesome and wanted to support the effort. The game wasn't bad either! Though I hadn't been following the game before I bought it.
Fast forward and now we've got GOG not only bring back the nostalgia factor, but being pretty handy about their store and carrying the DRM-free solution. Considering we're still with the grasp of the Ubisoft draconian drm era I think this is awesome. I don't think I've seen their sale prices on current-ish titles be as crazy as Steam sales, but I may have to throw a few bucks their way to continue to support this DRM-free concept.
I just find it interesting that THAT many people care about the whole DRM FREE angle. Steam is DRM and has never given me a single problem. Sure, I don't miss the days of Starforce and whatever other BS DRM there was, but that hasn't been a problem for a long time.
I was hoping No one lives forever would have been on that list. Sadness.
No one even knows who owns the rights to NOLF. I'm pretty sure Night Dive Studios is working on it though.
