A couple of days ago, Galaxy 2.0, GOG's upcoming hub type launcher, got a closed beta update and now, it has reached the open beta phase. You can see a small feature overview above.
As a reminder for those who haven't followed the development too close, the folks at GOG announced their plans for the new launcher in May, launcher which entered an invite-based closed beta a month later.
In July, it received its first relatively major content patch, version 2.0.3 or the Nyx Update. Keeping the space theme, September's Atlas Update (v2.0.5) added a slew of features like global search, expansive customization features for your library, and much more. November saw the release of the Euporie Update (v2.0.9) with its support for mouse shortcuts (on Windows), duplicate game stacking, searching for community integrations, and access to GOG game extras.
Finally, the Argus Update (v2.0.10/2.0.11) that made its way to folks on December 7 added the ability to see your friends' activity across connected platforms via a new dedicated sidebar, as well as to share your stats - like number of owned games, achievements, and so on - to social media. Feel free to check all of the linked updates for our in-depth looks.
