After their unexpected departure in June, EA has made an even more unexpected move and relisted Ultima Underworld 1+2, Syndicate Wars, and Syndicate Plus on GOG.com and Origin. Yet more surprising, they’re giving them away for free on both platforms until September 3rd. GOG.com announced the news on their forums earlier today including a message from the publisher:
“Syndicate and Ultima Underworld are back! It seems that twenty years on there’s still plenty of love for these titles so we’re pleased to confirm that effective immediately they’ll be available again on GOG, and we’ll be keeping them in the store for the foreseeable future. To celebrate this we’re offering these games as a free download for four weeks.”
Grab them on either platform, or both, for the next few weeks. Here are the links: Ultima Underworld 1+2 (GOG, Origin [1,2]), Syndicate (Origin), Syndicate Plus (GOG), Syndicate Wars (GOG). Thanks again to Dimchkin for the heads up on the news.
