Epic celebrates Unreal's 20th anniversary by giving away Unreal Gold
May 22, 20181 min read
Epic Games' first 3D title, Unreal, is 20 years old this year (and now I feel old). The game and its incredible follow-up, Unreal Tournament, played a massive part of my childhood and helped get me into PC gaming in a big way. I recommend that everyone at least give it a try, not only to see the beginnings of one of the industry's biggest game engines, but because it is simply a great game (hell, watch LGR's retrospective on it to see why).
Trying it has gotten a whole lot easier as Epic Games is handing out Unreal Gold for free on Steam and GOG. Unreal Gold is a compilation of the original title and its decent expansion, Return to Na Pali. For a limited time, you'll be able to grab the game and add it to your account for the low price of a mouse click. If you're worried about your PC being able to run it, don't be. The game is not only incredibly scalable, but runs perfectly fine on modern hardware with a few quick fixes.
