What's notable about this sale is that it brings, for the first time on GOG, a DRM-free variant of the BioShock Infinite Complete Edition - which includes Episode 1 and 2 of the Burial at Sea DLC, as well as Clash in the Clouds and Columbia's Finest - at 75% off. That's about $15.29, though prices may vary depending on region.
In addition to the brand new DRM-free addition, major GOG sales usually come with a free giveaway, and this time it's the turn of 2016 sci-fi puzzle title Obduction. This was created by Cyan, the same folks behind well-known puzzlers Myst and Riven. You're free to claim it at no cost until June 1 at 1PM UTC - that's 9AM EST, 6AM PST U.S. time.
In addition, GOG has also created seven collections of games as part of the whole festival-themed sale:
- Arctic Mages (containing Banner Saga + OST, Banner Saga 2 Deluxe, Banner Saga 3 Deluxe)
