GOG.com has officially begun its 2016 Summer Sale. Slated to run for two weeks, the promo will feature over 1,000 deals along with activities and an XP system that awards points for use towards free games. New deals will be added every 24 hours. To kick things off, the service is giving away a free copy of System Shock 2 through their GOG Galaxy client for the first 48 hours. The recently updated Homeworld Remastered Collection is also on sale for 50% off. For those wanting to see some of the games in action, GOG staff will be streaming Stardew Valley and Grim Fandango Remastered tomorrow on their Twitch channel. As a bonus, anyone who tunes in will receive an XP boost.
GOG.com has added three new Dungeons & Dragons game packs. In all, seven titles have been updated for modern systems and made available on the service. Dungeons & Dragons: Ravenloft Series includes both Strahd’s Possession and Stone Prophet. Dungeons & Dragons: Krynn Series includes three titles: Champions of Krynn, Death Knights of Krynn, and The Dark Queen of Krynn. Lastly, Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Sun Series includes Shattered Lands and Wake of the Ravager.
The quarter-destroying duo of Dungeons & Dragons: Tower of Doom and Shadow over Mystara have been brought back from the past with the release of Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara today for PC and PS3 and tomorrow for 360. The Iron Galaxy-developed double pack features both beat ‘em ups and a host of extras, including unlockable concept art, new House Rules customization options, and four-player local and online multiplayer support with drop-in/drop-out play. Players will select one classic D&D class, from the deadly warrior to the powerful mage, and go on an adventure that features branching paths, a lite RPG-style leveling system, and a new dynamic Challenge system.
For those who have been gaming for a while, there are two—of many—general truisms regarding Capcom’s library: DuckTales was and is a fantastic platformer, and there is no reason why the Dungeons & Dragons collection shouldn’t be released stateside. Capcom has ticked several boxes in one announcement with the news that they will be releasing DuckTales Remastered and both Dungeons & Dragons side-scrolling brawlers, Tower of Doom and Shadow over Mystara, online this summer.
