Digital Arts has added 9 basic video games to Steam together with Dungeon Keeper Gold, SimCity 3000, and WW2-era open-world motion sport The Saboteur, which had beforehand been delisted from Valve’s digital PC retailer, however is now again and on sale.

Nowadays, I really feel like I spend extra time writing and studying about video games being delisted, deleted, canceled, or caught on outdated platforms. Simply earlier as we speak, on March 8, I used to be studying posts from builders about how Warner Bros. Discovery is planning to delist a few dozen video games from Steam with little warning. So I’ll take any excellent news I can get, like EA bringing some basic PC video games to Steam, making them simpler to play on gadgets just like the Steam Deck.

On March 7, EA introduced that 9 basic PC video games had been added to Steam. The writer even made somewhat fancy trailer saying the information. How good.


Right here is the total listing of video games EA simply added to Steam:

  • Command & Conquer The Final Assortment
  • SimCity 3000 Limitless
  • Populous
  • Populous II: Trials of the Olympian Gods
  • Populous: The Starting
  • Dungeon Keeper Gold
  • Dungeon Keeper 2
  • Sid Meier’s Alpha Centauri Planetary Pack
  • The Saboteur

A pleasant bonus: In the mean time, to have a good time these video games coming to Steam, EA has all of them on sale.

Now to be clear, most of those video games had been obtainable on GOG already. So it’s not like EA is bringing these video games out of the void and making them playable as soon as extra. However it’s good to see EA supporting Steam extra, and having the choice to purchase basic video games in additional locations is at all times good.

Plus, The Saboteur is now again on Steam after it was delisted from the platform someday in 2015. Weirdly, the open-world motion sport developed by Pandemic—the final sport the OG Star Wars Battlefront devs made earlier than being shut down by EA—was by no means faraway from EA’s digital storefront on PC or from GOG. It was simply Steam that misplaced the sport in 2015. However now, virtually a decade later, this superior sport that includes slick black-and-white visuals is again. And if you may get it engaged on the Valve’s Steam Deck, it appears to run effectively.

Publishers nonetheless must do much more to assist outdated video games and hold them from dying or being misplaced to time. So this may not look like a lot, nevertheless it’s one thing at the very least and it’s not unhealthy information and proper now, I feel all of us deserve a bit of excellent information. Get pleasure from your Friday and have a pleasant weekend.
