Codemasters goes for Steam distribution

U.K. based publisher latest to sign up


Valve
must be doing something right with Steam. Codemaster has followed the lead of other software developers in making its titles available via Valve’s Steam electronic content delivery system. Software developers and publishers including Take-Two, id Software, Activision, Capcom, Eidos, as well as many others are already taking advantage of Steam’s electronic software distribution model.

Codemasters says that Steam users will be able to purchase Overloard, DiRT and Clive Barker’s Jericho right away via Steam. The biggest news, however, might be the fact that Codemasters will make the highly anticipated Turning Point: Fall of Liberty available for download and purchase via Steam the same day that it will be on retail shelves.

Codemasters has several other PC titles in development, including Operation Flashpoint 2 and Hei$t, but they did not indicate if these titles would follow Turning Point: Fall of Liberty’s lead and be available via Steam upon release.

Valve claims that Steam has over 13 million accounts worldwide and is by far leading the electronic software distribution race. Similar electronic software distribution platforms, including EA’s Link service and Direct2Drive, do not even come close to the number of users that Steam has, according to industry estimates.
