Unreal has disappeared from GOG since he has already been delisted from Steam.
You may still buy The Unreal Gold, The Unreal Tournament 2004 – Editors Choice Edition, The Awakening Special Edition and the Unreal Tournament GOTY. But after two o’clock, Friday 23rd of December, they are delisted gone.
Unreal, released in 1998, was a first-person shooter that was, while taking advantage of the first player, a fun multiplayer mode. This was followed by the multiplayer-only Unreal Tournament which took the game to the next level. We haven’t played that once but we can still remember chasing people in the remote-controlled combat missile. Happy days.
The two title titles are gone, except that before being yanked from Steam. They’re being removed as they turn them off the online services for those titles. Their online services will be disabled this February 23rd, and while Unreal Tournament 3 isn’t being delisted, its online services will be closed in the short term.
If you have bought them you’ll still play them offline. However, you won’t be able to buy them from GOG after December 23. But after looking through many online stores, there appears to be no way anyone can buy them anyway.
Not allowing copies on eBay, so he’ll have to. It’s disappointing news. Despite it being confusing, this whole affair is so sad that Epics Unreal engine began life as Unreal. That title is being used by dozens, maybe even hundreds of game developers, but it’s being removed.
So, unless a remaster is waiting for the first time, that’s the sad day for unreal fans. Also take them up as long as you can.
