Heroic Games Launcher 2.13 has been released. Heroic Games Launcher is an open-source game launcher that uses the Legendary CLI tool to support games from the Epic Games Store, GOG, and Amazon Games.

Heroic 2.13 "Dorry & Broggy"


The day has come for a new Heroic release and here we are, with one of the biggest in recent times.
This new release brings tons of new features and improvements for GOG games which makes it more feature-complete than ever!

We also started a partnership with GOG and now every game you buy from the GOG store inside Heroic will give us a commission, so it is another way of supporting the project. :)

GOG Changes

  • Reworked downloading module
  • Ability to install and uninstall DLCs at any point (Windows and Mac builds) *
  • Ability to change game language at any point (Windows and Mac builds) *
  • Xdelta-based patching support for Windows and Mac builds *
  • Automatic installation of game dependencies as long as they are provided by GOG (Windows builds) *
  • New implementation of install script interpreter
  • Faster way of downloading and updating Linux native games *
  • Beta channels support for Windows and Mac builds (it's now possible to access Metro Exodus: Enhanced Edition) *

  • Version rollback for Windows and Mac builds *
