3D Realms returns, releases anthology

Get 32 games for $20 for the next 48 hours.

3D Realms has returned five years after shutting its doors in May 2007.

To celebrate its relaunch, the studio has assembled a 3D Realms Anthology consisting of 32 classic games along with a "re-rockestrated soundtrack". This bundle will ordinarily sell for $39.99, but is half off at $19.99 for the next 48 hours. More on that later.

This new and improved 3D Realms includes original founder Scott Miller along with new additions like CEO Mike Nielsen and vice president Frederik Schreiber, CEO of Interceptor Entertainment.

3D Realms is mostly known for the Duke Nukem series, which it left in shambles when Gearbox purchased the rights to Duke Nukem Forever, a game it released. But 3D Realms also published Wolfenstein 3D and produced Max Payne and Descent - whose developer Parallax Software later spawned Saints Row studio Volition.

As for the 3D Realms Anthology, it contains the following titles and can be purchased DRM-free at the studio's official site.
