Have you ever wondered what would happen to your video games if you died? This is a somewhat complex and particular topic that already generated conversation on social networks two weeks ago with Valve. It turns out that Steam does not allow you to inherit your account if you die, which shows that accounts are not transferable to friends or family. However, GOG, the CD Projekt RED storewanted to add to this topic and has resolved some interesting doubts on this issue.

Yes ok give a password and username It is something simple, bequeathing your account legally seems like a fairly complex issue. Although Valve refuses To facilitate this process, GOG has said that it’s open to carry out said procedure, but first it would be necessary to meet a series of conditions for it to be done effectively. “As you may know, GOG does not collect enough information to really identify a person in particular (such as name and surname) or your family or marital status,” the store begins in a statement sent to PC Gamer.

“For this reason, we cannot establish that anyone is related to a particular user or that a particular user has died,” it says. “In general, your GOG account and GOG content are not transferable. However, if you can get a copy of a court order that specifically entitles someone to your personal GOG account, the digital content attached to it taking into account the EULAs of specific games within it, and that specifically refers to your GOG username or at least email address email used to create said account, we would do everything we can to make this happen“, Explain.

GOG would allow you to transfer your account and games in case of death

You read well, GOG would allow you to transfer your account and games to a family member or friend in case you die, but you need a court order and help of justice. “We are willing to handle such a situation and preserve your GOG library, but currently we can only do so with the help of the judicial system“. With this gesture the CD Projekt store once again wins the applause of the community, but even the company makes it clear that these types of processes are new for them, and there are “little or no existing legal guidance on the topic of video game preservation.”
