Good Old Games has announced that the latest update to its game delivery program, GOG Galaxy, brings with it universal cloud saves with version 1.2. The update also marks the end of the Beta.
The Universal Cloud Saves system allows you to store your save games from new and old titles that are purchased through GoG and run with GOG Galaxy.
The highlight of Update 1.2 is, of course, the Universal Cloud Saves. This new feature makes it possible to add cloud saving functionality not only to new games, but also to titles that never offered cloud saving before. Thanks to this, excellent games like Planescape: Torment, Heroes of Might & Magic® III, or Vampire®: the Masquerade – Bloodlines gain the benefits of saves syncing and cloud backup for the first time ever. Of course, if you prefer to keep your precious saves close at hand, GOG Galaxy also lets you download a backup of your saves data at any time and use it as you see fit.
This huge Update introduces the option to customize the Client to your needs by selecting which features you want to use. In addition, there is a brand new hibernate mode that cuts down on Client CPU usage while playing a game, and saves resources as well as battery life when idling in the background. We also went through the GOG Galaxy community wishlist and packed Update 1.2 with some of the most-requested features, including bandwidth limiting and scheduling, FPS counter, screenshot capturing, a sleek in-game overlay, achievement rarity, desktop and in-game notifications system, a new chat, and more!
GOG Galaxy Update 1.2 is available now for those who opted in to test the latest update versions. It’ll roll out to everyone using GOG Galaxy in April.
