GOG.com, the DRM-free digital distributor with the best games from all of history, continues the new year's celebration that started with the 500th game release on the digital distributor (Leisure Suit Larry's Greatest Hits & Misses). The string of great additions to the catalog continues with the award-winning Neverwinter Nights 2: Complete, a DRM-free version of the successfully Kickstarted Strike Suit Zero, and 10 new games for Mac all arriving on GOG.com today.

Neverwinter Nights 2: Complete comes with: the initial game as well as two expansion packs, Mask of the Betrayer™ and Storm of Zehir™; the adventure pack Mysteries of Westgate™; premium game modules from the developers of Neverwinter Nights 2; and Bioware’s Aurora Toolset for easy mod creation. This is the most-patched and up to date version of the game, encompassing over 100 hours of solo gameplay and limitless online campaigns. The core game tells the story of a new hero thrust into a world of intrigue and plots, influencing the fate of the great city of Neverwinter™ itself and uses the time-tested 3.5ed D&D® ruleset and fan-favorite Forgotten Realms® campaign setting.

Strike Suit Zero is fast and frenetic space combat game that takes the stylish visuals of Japanese mecha combat anime and mixes it with the solid game mechanics of a space shooter sim. With dazzling visuals, unique gameplay mechanics, scads of massive, hulking enemies, and a branching campaign where player choices affect the fate of Earth itself. Successfully funded on Kickstarter, GOG.com is happy to be the DRM-free digital distributor for this title. As a special bonus for GOG.com's customers, everyone who buys the game in the first month will receive a free DLC pack for Strike Suit Zero (once it's released).

Finally, GOG.com brings even more great Mac games to the service with the addition of Alpha Centauri and the Alien Crossfire expansion, Fallout 2, Legend of Grimrock, Sid Meier's Colonization, Postal 2, Ultima 7, Freespace 1, Terminal Velocity, Conquest of the New World, and the Blackwell Bundle now officially supported by GOG.com, bringing the total of Mac games to just shy of 100.
