    Epic Games and Valve, two of the PC industry's leading technology and content development studios, have inked an agreement to bring Epic's award-winning titles to Steam, a leading platform for PC games and digital content with over 15 million accounts around the world. The Epic hits now available on Steam include Unreal Gold, as well as Unreal II: The Awakening and the Unreal Tournament series of games, including the recently released Unreal Tournament 3, which has shipped over one million copies to date. All of Epic's titles available on Steam are offered in the Unreal Deal Pack, an incredible value for just $59.95. And, to celebrate the launch, all of Epic's games on Steam are available for 10% off their regular price. For more information or to purchase Epic's games via Steam, please visit Steam Games.

    Unbelievable. One of my signatures used to read "Steam Sucks":roll: I have to say my opinion of Steam has changed drastically after I actually talked to someone there to resolve the problem I had a while back. This is good for the UT3 clubhouse too. I'm glad, hopefully we'll start to see some more people on the servers!:toast:

    Nice. I'll be picking up that Unreal pack.

    Hopefully we'll see a classic "Megagames" pack in the future.

    If they end up running the oldskool Unreal Tournament (the first tournament game) that would be so f**king sweet. that game was total chaos & in a way the game play is a lot faster then a lot of the more upto date tournament games.

    ahhh the good old days when i use to play Unreal Tournament over the college net even though we werent allowed to :p 6players + Deck16 = hours of stupidity

    Unreal Tournament 3, think 2004 but x10 then add in some new vehicles change the weapons slightly pump up the graphics to insane and roid up the game play.

    Man Steam is what microsoft wanted digital download world. Steam is so big now and growing even faster only bad thing is that you cant take you disk to your friends and play it over there.
