To celebrate the availability of Saints Row IV: Game of the Century Edition and the standalone expansion Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell on GOG for the first time, the game distribution service is giving away Saints Row 2 for free. All you have to do is head over to GOG's website and claim your copy before the offer expires on Saturday, April 22, at 3:00 AM PT (6:00 AM ET / 11:00 AM GMT). Once you claim it, the game is yours to keep for all eternity.
What is neat about this offer (other than being free) is that no digital rights management (DRM) is attached to it. You can simply install the game and play it without checking in with GOG's servers for authentication or logging into the company's Galaxy digital distribution client (essentially GOG's version of Steam).
Even if you already own a copy of Saints Row 2 on Steam, it might be worth downloading the freebie if you want a DRM-free copy. Along with the other two Saints Row games, you can import each of them into your Steam library through GOG Connect. This will not alter your Steam copies, it just allows you to download the games from GOG without any DRM hooked in.
Saints Row 2 was released in 2008 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and then was ported over to PC in early 2009. It features open-world gameplay in the fictional city of Stilwater, taking place five years after the events of the original Saints Row. It is a reasonably well-liked game with a critic score of 72 on Metacritic for PC, and 6.8 score from users.
Saints Row IV is even more liked. It has an average 86 score from 45 critics on Metacritic, and a 7.4 user score from 1,546 user ratings. It is available at GOG on sale for $4.99, down from $19.99, while the Gat Out of Hell expansion is available for sale at $3.74, down from $14.99.
