Publisher EA has announced a raft of classic PC titles are now available for the first time on Steam, including some big names.

To celebrate the launches of these games, there are also discounts. For example, Command & Conquer – The Ultimate Collection is half price at the moment (£9.98). It’s a large collection of games, too, including the following according to Steam:

  • Command & Conquer
  • Command & Conquer: The Covert Operations
  • Command & Conquer: Red Alert
  • Command & Conquer: Red Alert: Counterstrike
  • Command & Conquer: Red Alert: The Aftermath
  • Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun
  • Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun Firestorm
  • Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2
  • Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2: Yuri’s Revenge
  • Command & Conquer: Renegade
  • Command & Conquer: Generals
  • Command & Conquer: Generals: Zero Hour
  • Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars
  • Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars: Kane’s Wrath
  • Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3
  • Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3: Uprising
  • Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight


A lot of the games have been available elsewhere, like The Saboteur on GOG, and of course EA’s own launcher and store has them, but most of these are brand new to Steam.

Here’s the full list of games, which EA says includes the most up to date patches, as well:

  • Command & Conquer – The Ultimate Collection (50% off)
  • Sim City 3000 Unlimited (60% off)
  • Populous (60% off)
  • Populous 2: Trials of the Olympic Gods (60% off)
  • Populous: The Beginning (60% off)
  • Dungeon Keeper Gold (60% off)
  • Dungeon Keeper 2 (60% off)
  • Sid Meier’s Alpha Centauri Planetary Pack (60% off)
  • The Saboteur (50% off)

So there you have it, some genuine classics on Steam for a good price. Some of these will likely appeal to Steam Deck owners, and although it’s a busy period, if you’re in the mood for some classics, that’s not a bad list at all. EA says “Whether it’s city planning in SimCity 3000 Unlimited, dungeon planning in Dungeon Keeper 2, tactical planning in Command & Conquer or planning your next attack in The Saboteur, the re-release of these beloved games from EA’s archives on Steam have every player covered”.
