Steam Just Keeps Getting Better – Now With Free To Play Games
With the many fantastic daily deals available on Steam, you have to wonder what could be better. Valve has satisfied that curiosity today by announcing the immediate addition of five Free To Play (F2P) games to Steam.
- Spiral Knights
- Forsaken Worlds
- Champions Online: Free for All
- Global Agenda: Free Agent
- Alliance of Valiant Arms (AVA)
In addition, beginning on Wednesday (6/15/2011) with Spiral Knights and concluding Sunday with AVA, each game will offer exclusive in-game content to those who try the “F2P game of the day” on Steam.
“The introduction of Free to Play games is another example of the constant evolution of Steam,” said Jason Holtman, director of business development at Valve. “Free to Play games offer new game genres and game experiences for customers, while offering developers and publishers new revenue opportunities and the ability to reach customers in areas of the world where the traditional packaged goods model is less popular than F2P.”
All five games will be monetized using the same micro-transaction system currently used in Team Fortress 2. This leaves me to wonder if user created content will be available to sell for the new titles in the future.
