Classic games servers rolling out on GON over the next few weeks

Lovers of classic multiplayer games, rejoice! Games.on.net have just announced that we are deploying a number of servers for some older classic games. These servers are here to stay and will never be shut down!

These public servers will run as is, with little to no customisation. So what games are to be catered for? Well, let’s look at the list. We’ve got the original Call of Duty, as well as Call of Duty 2, Unreal Tournament and Unreal Tournament 2004 and Quake 3. What a list!

So next time you have a LAN with a few friends, fire up some old classics. The servers will be rolled out over the next few weeks and as they’re public servers, if you could let us know when they’re down or broken or otherwise not working, that’d be great. Check out the forum thread for more info.

You do know that all the games listed have LAN play right? ;) We’re actually looking at playing CoD 2 for our next LAN.

 

UT2004?!

Freaking AWESOME!

 

I’m curious whether anyone will be on the servers.

Games like MohAA still have people on them sure, but a game like AvP 2010 has loads of servers yet only 2 are ever populated.

 
 

Fantastic idea :) I hope I can find my copy of UT2004 haha

 

OMG haha, this is awesome.
when you say, Original COD, Do you mean United Offensive expansion too? If So I will def dig around for my copy. I miss those days.

 

cod:uo ….. i think my pantaloons just got tent like

 

Awesome, Unreal Tournament! The only game I’ve ever been able to consistently be in the top 3-5 players in a match online. Been years since I last played it though…

 

Music to my ears.

 

How about Counter-Strike 1.5 or Crysis Wars?

 

quake 3 ? it begins !

 

*sings*…I feel like pwning noobs…

 

jme,

Crysis Wars is hardly a classic game.

 

These happen to be my favourite shooter games of all time. Especially COD 1 (only ever played cod1, btw), UT99 and Quake 3.

 

hmm, to go and buy UT Gold or UT2004…

 

merkin,

Well there were never any Australian servers. So it hasn’t been played in Australia for a long time.

 

still waiting for Wolf:ET servers to return to Node, but may be a long wait…

Man that was my favourite online game ever!

lol, came to suggest the same thing :D

T’was a sad day when they closed :(

 

UT2004 and UT Yay!

Agree that Wolf:ET would be a welcome addition… esp since the game is free.
