A new sale kicks off today for digital PC store GOG.com. The Most Wanted Games Sale highlights over 150 of the most wishlisted games on GOG, up to 85% off. The sale ends April 23.
Unsurprisingly the top spots on everyone’s whishlists are dominated by big RPGs. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and its expansions hold the #1 spot (The Witcher 3 was developed and published by GOG owners CD Projekt). It’s currently 60% off.
Clocking in at #2 is the seminal 1999 cRPG Planescape: Torment, which is still lauded as having one of the more memorable stories and best writing in gaming (67% off). A spiritual sequel, Torment: Tides of Numenera, released last year from InXile Entertainment (it’s 50% off on the Most Wanted Sale).
At the third spot is the other seminal cRPG from that Golden Age, Baldur’s Gate II (75% off). Note that as with Planescape: Torment you’re technically buying the Beamdog-developed Enhanced Editions. Both games include their unaltered originals and the Enhanced Editions have generally been well received.
Other highlights of the Most Wanted Sale include a mix of classic and modern favorites: Divinity: Original Sin 2 (15% off), Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura (35% off), Darkest Dungeon (60% off) and Superhot (50% off).
Does you wishlist line up with the general community’s? Or are you like me, having purchased most of those games already and now your wishlist is an eclectic assortment of less popular games that never go on sale? Harrumph.
The Most Wanted Games sale ends April 23. In related GOG news, if you pre-order Battletech you can get Shadowrun Returns for free, while a pre-order of Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire nets you Wasteland 2.
