Sold Out, the UK's premier publisher of affordable PC titles, has further strengthened its reputation as the country's most respected super-budget firm with seven incredibly strong titles making up its March line-up of £4.99 releases.
In a collection that represents one of its strongest line-ups to date, the March Sold Out releases comprises huge smashes such as Command and Conquer: Tiberian Sun , Tomb Raider Chronicles, Sim City 3000: UK Edition, and Conflict: Desert Storm - each of which have enjoyed massive success as full-price titles, and are all making their debut as budget-priced releases.
Command and Conquer: Tiberian Sun represents a real coup for the label, with the hugely advanced real-time strategy epic widely regarded as one of the greatest PC titles of all time. Governing a high-tech army, players must build a powerful combat force from scratch, mining minerals for use in the creation of a host of tanks and vehicles, whilst also investing in the training of crack ground troops. Boasting stunning in-game visuals and Westwood's brilliant cut sequences, Tiberian Sun's reputation is wholly earned, and is a welcome addition to Sold Out's £4.99 label.
Keeping up the high profile of Sold Out's March releases, Tomb Raider Chronicles marks the return of Lara Croft to the range, in her fifth PC adventure. Boasting more moves and a wider range of locations and hazards, the famed archaeologist is tested to the limits in a mission that mixes puzzles and reflexes. Sim City 3000: UK Edition is another well known release, with players given carte blanche to create, run and maintain a sprawling metropolis. Every aspect of the city's care falls under the player's control, with the movements and happiness of the populace directly affected by how safe and clean the city is kept.
Conflict Desert Storm is SCi's superb Gulf War combat title. Developed by Pivotal, the game offers an incredible level of detail as players battle the terrible desert conditions and a hostile enemy in a series of running battles. Rounding off March's stunning collection are Tiger Woods PGA 2001 - EA's superb golf title - and Project Eden, a 3D action title developed by Tomb Raider creators Core Design for Eidos. SCi's football title 442 completes this varied and unbeatable line-up, and as ever, all will feature Sold Out's .Now online consumer support software.
"Our March seven dwarfs the competition," offered Garry Williams, Managing Director for the £4.99 label. "Where else would you see the likes of Sim City 3000, Tomb Raider Chronicles, Conflict Desert Storm and Tiberian Sun in the same month? Nowhere - and this just proves how far ahead Sold Out is in terms of delivering the best games for pocket money prices. We defy anyone to beat this line-up..."
