GOG.com To Include Epic Games From Epic Games

Share |

The title is misleading, but I find it amusing. Let me clarify. GOG.com — the super convenient service that let’s you download DRM-free games (which are good and old… that’s important) at avery low prices with extras, like a game’s soundtrack, artwork and so on — will now include games from the development team, Epic. As expected, they’re all Unreal games.

"Today GOG.com, the best place for digitally distributed, DRM-free PC classics, announced an agreement with Epic Games, Inc. that will bring several titles in the renowned studio’s Unreal series to GOG.com. Under the agreement, Unreal Gold (including the Return to Napali expansion pack), Unreal Tournament: Game of the Year Edition, Unreal II: The Awakening Special Edition and Unreal Tournament 2004: Editor’s Choice Edition will soon be added to the GOG.com games catalogue, completely DRM-free, compatible with modern operating systems, packed with bonus materials and sold at unreal prices.

“Epic Games redefined the first-person shooter with the Unreal series, and we’re very happy to welcome them to the growing list of companies that share our vision of digital distribution,” said Adam Oldakowski, Managing Director of GOG.com. “We know that a lot of gamers have been waiting for new deals, and we’re sure that the Unreal games will satisfy their lust for alien blood and intense multiplayer action… DRM-free, of course.”

“Epic has partnered with GOG.com to make our time-honored Unreal series more accessible than ever before,” said Jay Wilbur, vice president of Epic Games. “GOG.com provides an affordable way to buy our back catalogue of games and get up and running with minimal effort.”

The Unreal games have already begun to appear in the GOG.com games catalogue with today’s release of Unreal Gold (http://www.gog.com/en/gamecard/unreal_gold) and Unreal Tournament: GotY Edition (http://www.gog.com/en/gamecard/unreal_tournament_goty). More titles, as well as announcements of additional publishers and new site features, will appear in the coming weeks."

This is cool, but I can’t believe Planescape: Torment isn’t available yet.
