GOGcom secures 25 classic EA games

first_imgThe Good Old Games service (GOG.com) has impressed ever since it first came online. A digital download service with no DRM offering classic games that work on modern versions of Windows. It’s an ageing gamers treasure trove of nostalgia, and a great collection for the curious younger gamers out there.That treasure trove of titles just got a little bit bigger thanks to a new deal that has been agreed with EA. The deal will see GOG.com get at least 25 classic games from EA’s back catalog over the coming months.AdChoices广告The full line-up has not been revealed yet, but the first three games are already available and include:Wing Commander: PrivateerDungeon KeeperUltima Underworld 1+2The next three games planned for release are:Crusader: No remorseSid Meier’s Alpha CentauriMagic CarpetAfter those six games are out, we won’t be seeing any more until the end of summer. The other bad news is the EA deal does not include System Shock or Syndicate, but hopefully another deal can be done if EA generates a decent amounts of revenue from this initial offering and sees the value of adding more titles.So far all the games are priced at a more than fair $5.99 each, and we hope that trend continues when the other titles appear. GOG has also been doing money-saving deals more regularly, so hopefully we should see an EA weekend deal in the not-too-distant future.Last year GOG admitted that there are only around 250 games left to add to the catalog before it’s complete. The aim is to reach 400 at some point next year. With another 25 from EA the service gets a little bit closer to its goal, but if games like System Shock are held back indefinitely it may never be truly complete.Read more at GOG.comlast_img read more
