GameTap New Releases 06.16.09

This week’s new releases on GameTap, Unreal Tournament: Game Of The Year Edition and Unreal: Gold Edition, represent the first offering from our recent partnership with Epic Games. To celebrate this release we’ll be hosting an Unreal Tournament multiplayer event on June 27th at 7PM. GameTap subscribers will have the opportunity to frag not only each other but also the GameTap staff. Details such as server info will be posted in the GameTap community forums on the night of the event.

Today also marks the return of GameTap’s free game of the week promotion which will continue for the foreseeable future.

New Release For Subscription Service, Available 06.18.09:

Unreal: Gold- You are Prisoner 849 and the starship that served as your prison has just crashed on the planet Na Pali. While blasting everything in site on your quest for freedom you'll unravel the tale of an invading alien race hell-bent on stripping the planet of its natural resources using the native inhabitants as forced labor. This version of Unreal includes the Unreal Mission Pack: Return to Na Pali!

Unreal Tournament: Game Of The Year Edition- It is 2341, and the most popular sporting event in the world is the Liandri Corporation's Deathmatch Tournament. But hey, you don't care about any of that, this isn't a game where story matters for much. All you need to know is that you can get out there and kill something. This is your chance to experience the fast-paced multiplayer classic for yourself.

Next Week’s Release: Rise Of Nations

Free Game Of The Week, 06.18.09– 06.24.09:

Total Overdose- Ramiro "Ram" Cruz is your usual tough guy -- drugs, guns, the gangster life. But Ram's twin brother Tommy chose a different path: the DEA. And when Tommy's injured during an undercover operation in Mexico, the only choice is to bring Ram in to fill his brother's shoes. You'll soon be up to your eyeballs in dirty cops, dangerous drug lords and more gunfights than most vaqueros ever saw.
