LucasArts gets Steamed
LucasArts will be joining the Steam content distribution service on the 8th of July, offering some of their all time classic gaming experiences. Old Skool gamers rejoice! Indiana Jones and the Monkey Island games are amongst our all time favourite adventure games.
LucasArts previously announced the return of the classic Monkey Island® franchise with two new projects due to be released in the near future. Tomorrow, July 7, Telltale will premiere the Tales of Monkey Island® game series on PC, delivering a completely new epic storyline and swashbuckling flair that will unfold across five monthly episodes. The first Tales of Monkey Island chapter is expected to release for WiiWare™ in the coming weeks as well.
The Monkey Island celebration continues on July 15 when LucasArts publishes The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition, a completely re-imagined version of the first game in the series that adds updated high definition graphics, a re-mastered musical score, and full voice-over to the classic adventure game originally launched in 1990.
The complete list of games to be released on July 8 via Steam includes:
• Armed and Dangerous™
• Indiana Jones® and the Fate of Atlantis
• Indiana Jones® and the Last Crusade: The Graphic Adventure
• LEGO® Indiana Jones: The Original Adventure
• Star Wars Battlefront® II
• Star Wars Republic Commando®
• Star Wars Starfighter™
• The Dig®
• Thrillville®: Off the Rails™
It looks like the old DOS based games will be updated to include a real Windows executable - no DOS Box like solutions required whilst Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis is set to include some never before seen extras.
