Mastertronic Announce Colin McRae DiRt, Overlord, And Tomb Raider: Anniversary Are Out Now In Their Sold Out Range

Mastertronic have announced that Colin McRae DiRt, Overlord, And Tomb Raider: Anniversary are coming to their Sold Out Range in the UK. all three games should be out now for £4.99.


Press Release

Step into the dark side in Overlord as you use any means necessary to conquer a twisted fantasy world to become the most powerful being in the world. The game centers around simultaneously controlling the Overlord and an army of goblin-like minions to traverse the gameworld and defeat the seven heroes who slew the Overlord's predecessor, and who have since been corrupted by power. Each one represents one of the seven deadly sins. Controlling a mysterious figure that has inherited the legacy of the evil, long-dead Overlord, the player emerges near death, from the ruins of the old Overlord’s Dark Tower. Gamespot says ‘Overlord is an enjoyably mischievous experience that blends real-time strategy and RPG elements to unique ends’. Only your actions will determine whether you will rise to become the new all-powerful Overlord. So how evil can you be?

Colin McRae DiRT is the sixth rally-racing game in the Colin McRae Rally series that combines elements of arcade and simulation driving to make for an unforgettable gaming experience. Colin McRae: DIRT is the most diverse and exhilarating off-road racing experience ever with sensational gravel, mud and dirt events the world over. Events include the series' intense point-to-point races and takes players further off-road than ever before. Colin McRae: DIRT delivers the wheel-screaming exhilaration of off-road racing with the next generation of the series' sublime car handling and physics system and a devastating new damage engine that ensures players experience every bump in the track, every loose rock, every inch of shifting dirt through the reactive environments. With an incredible range of off-road vehicles, thrill-packed tracks, modes that make the most of online multiplayer, and more varied events than any other single-championship rally game, Colin McRae: DiRTis a bigger, faster, wilder racing experience.

Celebrate and commemorate ten years of Tomb RaiderTM and Lara CroftTM with Tomb Raider: Anniversary, an entirely new gameplay experience inspired by the first ever Tomb Raider adventure. When Lara Croft is hired to retrieve a mythical object called the Scion, she begins a dangerous search across isolated and desolate worlds, places untouched for thousands of years. But Lara is not alone, the tombs are guarded by fearsome creatures, and close behind are others desperate to learn the Scion's powerful secrets. Explore uncharted and mysterious worlds – enter into strange, undiscovered lands and solve their deepest, darkest mysteries, open doors to new realms, uncover great rewards and unearth secrets to Lara’s past.

Mastertronic’s Product Director Neil McKennacomments, “Our Sold Out range has always represented good value for money and we are delighted to highlight this with the addition of these high quality titles to the range. The critically-acclaimed Tomb Raider Anniversary has smashed box office records and both Overlord and Colin McRae DiRT received high review scores. Where else would you get a box office smash hit for under a fiver? These are sure to be essentials in everyone’s collection.”

All four PC titles are out now on general release and retail at just £4.99.
