Quick Guide | How to Activate a CD Key on GOG.com

gogtutorial

 

GOG.com (Good Old Games), created by the Polish publisher CD Projekt, is a digital distribution platform and video game activation website similar to Steam and Origin. The only difference is GOG.com is DRM-free. DRM or Digital Rights Management is a type of copy protection technology used by many companies to limit the usage of digital media.

There are two ways for you to activate a game or a CD key. The first one is through the GOG.com website, and the other one is through GOG GALAXY, GOG.com’s very own client. This tutorial will show you both methods.

 

Before anything else, create an account on GOG.com if you have not done so yet.
