The Motherload – GOG.com snags EA Classics

After a fair amount of teasing over the past few months, GOG.com have announced the big publisher to compliment their already hefty catalogue…

Why hello there Electronic Arts!

A total of 25 titles from the mega-publisher are currently expected to hit the service, including classics from Bullfrog & Origin.

The launch titles are Dungeon Keeper, Wing Commander: Privateer & Ultima Underworld 1 & 2, with Magic Carpet, Crusader: No Remorse & Sid Meier’s Alpha Centauri due shortly.

It is expected that the majority of titles announced will be $5.99/equivalent given their age.

The site does come with the unfortunate clarification that the current deal with EA does not currently include the System Shock or Syndicate licenses, although this may change with time (or when EA want some additional marketing behind the Syndicate remake rumoured to be in development at Starbreeze).

Oh look, another silly video!

The biggest announcement in GOG.com’s history is a fact! Electronic Arts grants access to its deep back catalogue of classic franchises via yours truly GOG.com!

In a ground-breaking, earthshaking, and jaw-dropping deal we’ve managed to sign with EA and will be releasing more than 25 legendary classics from the globally renowned publisher. With today’s announcement three widely known and much awaited brands get the revival treatment from GOG.com: Wing Commander: Privateer, Dungeon Keeper and Ultima Underworld 1+2.

We will be adding more than 25 titles from EA over the next few months, so the games will be unveiled gradually, but we can already reveal that the next upcoming titles from this huge deal are: Crusader: No remorse, Sid Meier’s Alpha Centauri and Magic Carpet.

While the agreement between Electronic Arts and GOG.com brings back many acclaimed and well known franchises, it doesn’t include the much anticipated System Shock or Syndicate series at this time. After releasing the first six Electronic Arts classics, we will take a break from the concentrated awesome until later in the summer.
