Valve announced it has signed an agreement with id Software to bring id's entire portfolio of PC titles to digital content delivery platform Steam, including most Quake and Doom titles, as well as Hexen, and even Commander Keen.
Starting today, Steam users may download full versions of these best-selling and critically-acclaimed games, including the complete DOOM series and QUAKE I - III, including mission packs, as well as id's pioneering PC side-scroller, Commander Keen and vintage favorites Wolfenstein 3D, Spear of Destiny, Heretic, and HeXen. As part of the id Welcome Celebration on Steam, select id packages are being offered with a 10%, limited-time discount.

"Valve pioneered digital delivery of video games with Steam," said Todd Hollenshead, CEO of id Software. "As a game developer themselves, Valve understands what developers and game players want and need in an online distribution system, and Steam delivers."

"We can't overstate our admiration for id, its games, and the technical advancements the company has delivered to help move the industry forward during the past 15 years," said Gabe Newell, co-founder and president of Valve. "Like many other studios, Valve was born when we licensed the QUAKE engine to build our first game. We're proud to welcome id to Steam and give people around the world an easy way to play the games that have inspired everyone here at Valve."
