GOG Galaxy Epic Games Store integration has finally arrived to GOG's desktop client, making it easier than ever to play all of your games in one place.

"We’re happy to add to GOG GALAXY 2.0 the official integration with Epic Games Store, which is the second most connected external platform in the app," said GOG Senior Vice President Oleg Klapovsky in a press release. "Together with GOG.COM and Xbox Live, those official integrations are bringing a more seamless and reliable experience to gamers."

 

The addition of the Epic Games Store to the list of supported integrated platforms brings an even bigger library of games to one launcher such as the newly-launched Rogue Company, a third-person shooter from Hi-Rez Studios and First Watch Games which has had a surprise launch for its beta program today.

What is GOG Galaxy Epic Games Store Integration and How Does It Work?

Simply put, GOG Galaxy Epic Games Store integration connects the two platforms together and allows you to launch Epic Games Store games from GOG Galaxy.

It's pretty easy to get it done. Here's how you do it:

 
 
  1. Click the Settings Gear in GOG Galaxy.
  2. Hover over "Add Games & Friends."
  3. Select :Connect Platforms."
  4. Press the "Connect" button next to "Epic Games Store" and enter your EGS credentials.
  5. Once you're gone, your GOG Galaxy Epic Games Store integration should be complete!

Previously, GOG officially debuted this style of integration for Xbox Live. The Epic Games Store marks the second official service enabled as part of GOG Galaxy's integration program.

While Xbox Live and the Epic Games Store have official support, it's not the only way to get all of your games in one place. Community-created integrations (also available in the same Integrations Settings menu) allow you to connect Origin, PlayStation Network, Steam, UPlay, and other libraries to GOG Galaxy, although these unofficial releases might not work as well.

In any case, it's now easier than ever to play your games from one launcher! If you haven't grabbed it already, you can download GOG Galaxy for free and start assembling your ultimate game library in one app.

Would you want to launch all of your games in one spot or do you prefer to use each individual launcher? What service or platform would you like to see integrated into GOG Galaxy next? Let us know in the comments below!
