Epic Joins Steam, Unreal Games Now Available

By Chris Faylor, Mar 17, 2008 12:51pm PDT Unreal creator Epic Games today joined the ever-growing ranks of game studios that sell their products through Valve's PC digital distribution platform Steam.

Epic's initial offerings constitute five titles: Unreal Gold, Unreal II: The Awakening, Unreal Tournament: Game of the Year Edition, Unreal Tournament 2004: Editor's Choice Edition, and Unreal Tournament 3.

Each title will be sold for 10% off until March 24. An Unreal Deal Pack is also available, containing the five titles for $59.95--a savings of over $46. The discount applies to the Unreal Deal pack as well, making it $53.95 until March 24.

"Epic is a leading developer of game engine technology and has produced some of my favorite games of all time," said Valve president Gabe Newell. "It's an honor to be working with them and offering their current and classic titles to the millions of Steam gamers around the world."

  • Epic probably got serious about doing this after Id Software released their back catalog on Steam. Tons of comments in that news posts all started with "This is awesome, now we need Epic to get their games on Steam as well". 'nuff said. :)

    Too bad I already bought the Unreal Anthology on CD. Have no plans to play UT3 at all. It was just nice to add UT 2 & U2 to my games archive to play if I wanted. Right now I can't get that Digital Extremes Pariah game to load up at all. Keeps giving me an error message no matter what I try. :/
