The original Marathon from Bungie has been released on Steam, and you can get it today completely free.

“Today, we’re thrilled to announce that the Aleph One community is bringing the original 1994-1996 Marathon Trilogy to Steam starting with Marathon 1,” the studio said via Twitter. “Thank you to the Marathon community for your support over the years. We couldn’t do it without you.”

This updated version of the original Marathon features widescreen HUD support, 60+ frames per second, positional audio, and 3D filtering and perspective. All of it being done using the original game files.

Marathon was first released for Mac back in December 1994. The next two games in the series, Marathon 2: Durandal and Marathon Infinity, were then released in 1995 and 1996, respectively.

In addition to the first game, both Marathon 2 and Marathon Infinity will also be available on Steam. No official release date for those two games has been announced, but, like Classic Marathon, they will both be free.

As far as the future of the series, the new Marathon game remains in development at Bungie. The latest update on the game saw changes that will see it have a cast of heroes to choose from.
