GOG.com announced that several new games have arrived on the DRM-free gaming platform, along with pre-orders opening up for the highly anticipated release of Harebrained Schemes’ Battletech, the crowdfunded revival of the classic series that was made popular by FASA Studios.
So three new games have landed on GOG.com and another has become available for pre-order. Into The Breach from Subset Games is currently available over on the store page for $14.99. This is a tactical tile strategy game. It’s very much like the original Battletech turn-based strategy games of old – those CRPGs from yesteryears… like Westwood’s Battletech, which is currently available as abandonware on sites like Lemon Amiga.
I was never any good at those old turn-based titles because they were difficult to get into and had some steep learning curves.
Anyway, if you were interested in a turn-based mech game, Into The Breach is available right now and you get a free copy of FTL: Advanced Edition with your purchase.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance has been receiving a lot of high praise from gamers thanks to its realistic take on 15th century Bohemia. The game puts players in the role of the bastard son of a blacksmith who must get revenge and save the land.
Some game journalists have been rectum-ruptured at the idea that a game made by a man who lived through and hated Communism would side with #GamerGate because the people fought for better ethics in video game journalism. In result, some of staff at large outlets like Giant Bomb have refused to review or even play the game.
Even still Kingdom Come: Deliverance managed to sell more than 1 million copies in a single week without coverage and support from some of the traditional old-guard in the gaming media.
You can check out the aforementioned games along with the pre-order/pre-purchase of Battletech over on GOG.com right now.
