    I like GoG... it is like a Second Steam to me... especially the old titles made easy to play.

    "In my case I have grabbed many an Epic Games Store freebie but have never got around to downloading the launcher yet, and it looks like I won't need to - once I get time to explore some of the games."

    Is this true? Normally for GOG integrations you still need the underlying launcher - you just don't need to use it directly. I can't see Epic giving GOG the keys to the bank vault?

    Got to be honest I tried to avoid Epic but finally given in (Still prefer Steam).

    That is how I read it, but have yet to install either GOG Galaxy 2.0 or Epic's launcher.
    I know on Steam that launches the uPlay or EA Origin client etc when certain games run.
    I can give it a try this afternoon, sometime after the important news at 2, if no one else knows for sure.

    UPDATE: yes, launching an EGS game from GOG Galaxy 2.0 runs the Epic Games Launcher in the background before the game starts to load.

    Only because you don't actually need it running to launch a game. You can still just open teh .exe direct from file manager!
