GOG.com Gets Unreal with Epic

The Ground-Breaking Shooter
Series is Coming to the DRM-Free Classic Games Site

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
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

and Unreal Tournament: GotY
. More titles, as well
as announcements of additional publishers and new site features, will appear in
the coming weeks.
