GOG.com is kicking off its holiday sale today and will be offering discounts on more than 600 video games in its DRM-free game library between now and 8:59 a.m. ET on Dec. 29, the company announced.
To kick off the sale, GOG is offering post-apocalyptic role-playing games Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel for free during the first 48 hours of the sale. Due to the Fallout franchise rights changing hands from developer Interplay Entertainment to Bethesda at the end of this year as the result of last year's litigation settlement, GOG will no longer be able to sell the games after 2013. Players who purchase these games from GOG before the end of the year, however, can keep them.
Three types of daily deals will be offered during the two-week sale. Each day of the sale, registered GOG.com users will receive Mystery Boxes containing free games and other gifts, as well as notices on special sales. Well-known YouTube gaming channels, to be announced throughout the sale, will also showcase games each day with recommendations. Furthermore, the GOG.com community can vote on one of two game bundles to go on sale every day.
Still no Linux support, but this is good too as the games can be run in DOSBox. I especially like the highlighted bit. Make haste, lads and lasses.
Edit: Here's a link to the free games and here a link to the article.
