Epic Joins Steam, Unreal Games Now Available

81
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."

          That could change.

          Vivendi have no games on steam, but activision do.

          Activision/Blizzard/Vivendi are one company now, so I guess if their stuff on Steam sells well they will be likely to continue the relationship.

          Just to echo everyone else, that'd be an insta-purchase for everything by LucasArts.

        Ubisoft
        Sierra On-Line (I'd re-buy all those old adventure games in a second)

          Quest.. for... Glory. If those games -- some of my favorites of all time -- were updated to run on XP/Vista with no DOSBox'ing, maybe I could get some of my deprived friends to see their majesty..

          Of course, Monkey Island, too. (Lucasarts)

        Is EA still trying it's own download service?

      Bought. Getting 5 unreal games (including UT3) for $54.00 was just too good to pass up.

        Sucks for those of us with some of the games already. I don't have Unreal Gold or UT2 - but then again the price isn't exactly bad for each now is it...

          I own a couple, but my discs are shot to hell. and with UT3 (standalone) being 45$ there's really no reason not to.

            except that I refuse to buy or play UT3. UT2004 was OK enough for the $15 I paid for it, but I do not enjoy the UT-style one bit. The only time I had fun was doing crazy shit like 300% speed, gauntlets only. The rest of the time I loathed pretty much every minute I played it.
