The latest update for GOG's unifying game launcher, Galaxy 2.0, squashes bugs and adds more tutorials to the closed beta. Users can also now hide games from their library, which seems especially important for a client that lists every game on your PC, and even beyond.

GOG also took some time to lay out the known issues it's working to address. Most notably, the client still doesn't have compatibility for Xbox Play Anywhere games. You also can't import games manually, but that's on the way. Some games may also still appear as "Unknown" in your library.

James recently went hands-on time with Galaxy 2.0's closed beta and found it to be the best way to conventionally gather his games across the many launchers in his life.

Here's the full patch notes for Galaxy 2.0.3:


  • Added tutorial on how Bookmarks work
  • Added context menu for bookmarks in Sidebar with an option to reorder bookmarks


  • Added tutorial screen for Friends Recommendations
  • Fixed issue with Friends Recommendations not displaying original platform name

  • Release of the games which were on preorder before, will be noticed by GOG GALAXY 2.0 immediately
  • Context menu will no longer stay open after leaving Library
  • Tags will no longer stay in context menu for games after last game using this tag has been removed
  • Fixed falsely displaying “Not Compatible” over Install button for some platforms
