Long overdue, EA finally releases some of its classic games on Steam

Baby steps.

EA has announced that they’re releasing a slew of their older games onto Steam. All of them were available elsewhere, but finally, they’re available on the PC’s biggest digital storefront.

A lot of these are from Bullfrog, one of the many studios that EA shuttered, but there’s also the Command & Conquer – The Ultimate Collection, which features some games from Westwood, another studio that EA shuttered.

Here’s the list:

  • Command & Conquer – The Ultimate Collection
  • SimCity 3000 Unlimited
  • Populous
  • Populous 2: Trials of the Olympic Gods
  • Populous: The Beginning
  • Dungeon Keeper Gold
  • Dungeon Keeper 2
  • Sid Meier’s Alpha Centauri Planetary Pack
  • The Saboteur

That’s a coincidence! I’ve been working on something involving Command & Conquer, and while doing my research, discovered The Ultimate Collection. I saw that it was available on the “EA App” (formerly Origin), and that’s as far as I went in that direction because I’m not installing the EA App. Now I don’t have to! Phew. But that’s neat since I just discovered its existence today while I was looking up if you could still buy Command & Conquer Renegade.

Aside from that, everything else was available on GOG, and I already own most of them on that list, but not Command & Conquer – The Ultimate Collection.

If it sounds like I’m being flippant, it’s because EA is one of the worst companies when it comes to preserving their back catalog. SimCity 3000 is here, but do you know what isn’t available? The original SimCity. Most of what they made back in the ‘80s and ‘90s might as well not exist to them.

But credit where it’s due. You can now buy the listed EA games on Steam. That’s not nothing. Maybe they’re going to pay better respect to their old classics, but I’ll believe it when I see it.

The games are available right now, and they’re all discounted quite considerably for a limited time.
