Beginning today, players may purchase the latest offerings for the City of Heroes, Guild Wars, and Lineage franchises via Steam. This includes the just released City of Heroes Architect Edition, making City of Heroes the first and only MMO that gives players the power to create their own unique story arcs and missions. NCsoft will also deliver its highly anticipated MMO, Aion™, on the Steam platform when it launches this fall in North America and Europe. Once a player purchases their favourite NCsoft games through Steam, they can then sign in from any PC to play.
“NCsoft’s leading-edge MMO’s are an incredible addition to the Steam library of games,” said Jason Holtman, director of business development at Valve. “NCsoft is a clear leader in the MMO industry, and we believe our player community will be very excited to have access to the diverse catalogue NCsoft has to offer our members.”
“We are thrilled to offer our franchises to the legions of gamers several in the Steam community,” said David Reid, president of publishing for NCsoft West. “Steam’s community is filled with passionate players intent on having the latest updates on their favourite games. Extending our distribution reach with Steam will allow more gamers the freedom and flexibility to stay updated and engaged with our games and online communities.”
For the next few weeks, Steam will have special offers for several NCsoft products.
