gog.com/news/release_the_saboteurRelease: The Saboteur
A single spark of courage can ignite the fires of hope.
The Saboteur, a stylish action-adventure chronicling one man's fight for revenge in Nazi-occupied France, is available now, DRM-free on GOG.com, with a 50% launch discount.
Sabotage really is an underappreciated art. Not only does it require copious amounts of creativity, street smarts, patience, and bravado, it can also help oppressed people survive an occupation long enough until the time is ripe to fight back. Racecar mechanic Sean Devlin wasn't planning on becoming a saboteur, but when his best friend gets killed by a sadistic German officer, he finds himself joining the French resistance, willing to cause some mayhem and avenge his buddy's death in the process. As he's running across rooftops, engaging in shootouts, and blowing up enemy assets, the black and white Parisian districts will gradually get more colorful, signifying the locals' growing confidence against the receding oppressors. Vive la résistance!
Work the streets and shadows of Paris and push back the German occupation forces in The Saboteur, DRM-free on GOG.com.

Aragami, a supernaturally-imbued stealth game, is now available for Windows, Mac, and Linux, DRM-free on GOG.com, with a 10% launch discount.
Moving silently and avoiding light sources doesn't make you one with the shadows. You must dance with them, embrace them, let them flow through you like you flow through them. As a vengeful spirit summoned to this world by an enigmatic girl that wants to escape her prison, Aragami must fight the army of Light by disposing of its unwitting minions. Not an easy undertaking, but he yields the power to control the shadows, bend and twist them at will, and have them consume his opponents while keeping his presence concealed. Every challenge can be approached through multiple paths, however, and sparing your oblivious enemies may appeal to you more than bathing your sword in their blood. As long as you reach Yamiko in time to fulfil your mysterious destiny.
Infiltrate a well-protected city and cast your shadows upon its guards, as the vengeful Aragami, DRM-free on GOG.com.

Reliving humanity's greatest conflict.
Medal of Honor: Pacific Assault the historically-inspired FPS of WWII heroics, is available now, DRM-free on GOG.com with a 60% launch discount.

Giving orders to your mates and calling a medic for health recovery are among the innovative features that give Pacific Assault that all-important coat of realism which perfectly compliments its accurate depiction of some less known WWII battles. And it proves that as much as war changes every man, so can one man's heroics change the war, either in big ways or small.
Join Medal of Honor: Pacific Assault and experience the war that changed the course of history, DRM-free on GOG.com.The 60% discount will last until November 3, 12:59 PM UTC.

Who built this place? Where did everybody disappear to? Why is the ship's computer so eager to get you out of here? There are many paths through this haunting story, and all of them will face you with inventive puzzles that require creative use of shrinking and growing devices, gravity-bending technology, and careful observation.
Whether you play the regular version of the game or the VR-enhanced experience, prepare to visit breathtaking locations that will challenge your perception of reality every step of the way.

The art of multitasking!
Cossacks 3, a multifaceted RTS with massive battles and demanding tactical gameplay, is available now, DRM-free on GOG.com with a 10% launch discount.
To the foot soldier war is often nothing but a savage, cruel game of survival but a general cannot afford to think this way. No, he must approach war as the ultimate battle of wits, a stimulating challenge of educated extrapolation. As a commander of thousands upon thousands of soldiers, swarming the battlefields of the 17th and 18th century Europe, you must start by overseeing the construction of the necessary buildings and materials before getting into the nitty gritty of the massive battles. The placement of your units, the tactical maneuvers, the trickery of the landscape - you must take all these factors into account whether you do battle on land or at sea. With twelve possible nations at your command, 70 different unit types, and over 140 historical buildings, it might take you some time to refine your strategies, but when you finally master the art of war, no campaign or multiplayer challenge will seem insurmountable.
Build and control your well-oiled machine of 17th-century warfare in Cossacks 3, DRM-free on GOG.com. Decorated war veterans will want to bolster their armies with the Digital Deluxe Edition, which provides access to 4 future DLC containing single-player campaigns, multiplayer battles, and the game's OST. If you're not ready to commit, you can always upgrade later.
The 10% launch discount will last until November 27, 10:59 PM UTC.
Note: You will find a redeemable multiplayer code in your Cossacks 3 gamepage. If you purchase the game until December 6, redeeming this code will also give you access to some Early Bird goodies, including an additional single-player mini-campaign, 2 unique units, and a special multiplayer badge.

"Atmospheric and impossible to rush, Shadow Tactics is a fabulous game - a game I think I prefer to both Commandos 2 and Desperados. I can see myself replaying it regularly."
RPS Recommended - RockPaperShotgun
"A glorious return for the hardcore tactical stealth genre."
8.5/10 - NZGamer
Veterans of Commandos or Desperados might find it a bit too handholdy (I wish they'd kept the tutorial parts separate from and out of the actual story missions) but other than that it's really good so far. Very close to what you'd expect a modern take on the top-down squad-based real-time tactical stealth genre to look and play like. Plus, you can't go wrong with early-17th century Edo period Japan (complemented by top-notch Japanese VO) for the setting.volsung;n7179500 said:GOG sent me a recommendation for Shadow Tactics earlier today. Looks pretty cool. Has anyone played it yet? There are a few games that interest me in that same price range and I don't see myself spending more than $100 in games when I could buy just one and wait the for rest.
