EA Unleashes Multiple Classics on Steam!

EA often gets a lot of heat from the gaming community, largely by being a soulless corporate automaton of a company that churns out games with fingers in their ears to what the community wants… pretty much like all the other big publishers. However, not everything has fallen on deaf ears, as it seems EA has cracked open its vaults to release a series of classic PC games to Steam for the first time ever.

Albeit, I’m not saying they’ve exactly rushed to the task here, as many of these games are decades old, but all of them are absolutely brilliant classics that are worthy of your attention. Especially if you’re like me, pushing forty years old and remember playing these games when your back, hands, knees, or all of the above were in perfect working order.

In their recent statement, EA said “Whether it’s city planning in SimCity 3000 Unlimited, dungeon planning in Dungeon Keeper 2, tactical planning in Command & Conquer or planning your next attack in The Saboteur, the re-release of these beloved games from EA’s archives on Steam have every player covered.”

Let the nostalgia begin!

In celebration of the launch to Steam, fans and those yet to experience these iconic experiences can purchase these titles at discounted prices for a limited time. Not that they were overly expensive to begin with on other storefronts, but honestly, while there is a sale on, you may as well get stuck into some of the best games EA ever put to market.

The full list of games now available on Steam, which feature the most up to date patches, includes:

  • Command & Conquer – The Ultimate Collection
  • Sim City 3000 Unlimited
  • Populous
  • Populous 2: Trials of the Olympic Gods
  • Populous: The Beginning
  • Dungeon Keeper Gold
  • Dungeon Keeper 2
  • Sid Meier’s Alpha Centauri Planetary Pack
  • The Saboteur

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
