GOG Galaxy’s next update will include a patch rollback option

On GOG Galaxy, you'll soon be able to turn back the clock on those pesky game updates that didn't go quite how you wanted.

Now and again, a game update doesn’t go quite how you (or even the developer) intended. Sometimes you just don’t want to update because the latest patch isn’t compatible with your favorite mod. Whatever your reason, sometimes you want that new patch to just go away.

With GOG Galaxy’s next update, you can make that patch go away if it doesn’t work out. With the rollback option, you can undo a game update at your convenience.

Other features also included in update 1.1:

  • the ability to pause and resume downloads without losing progress
  • friend search – find friends via e-mail or GOG username
  • new installation options
  • a compact sidebar
  • decrease in RAM and CPU usage, so client loads faster, performs better
  • HiDPI support

The gaming platform created by Valve competitor GOG, Galaxy is currently in beta, with update 1.1 available to those who are signed up for preview updates, but it rolls out “soon” for everyone else.

Galaxy has been billed as the “optional client” for GOG, and while it shares a lot of the same features with Steam, its games are all DRM free, giving users the option to play offline without having to enter activation codes.
