If you are a publisher and game developer company, then it’s a good thing to distribute your games via Steam in order to attract more gamers and to extend your player-base, and this is exactly what NCsoft has done. The South Korean publisher has announced that they will offer its MMOs via Valve’s online distribution platform.
NCsoft is now offering three games through Steam – City of Heroes, Guild Wars, and Lineage, however, the publisher is expected to launch another game called MMOG Aion: The Tower of Eternity which will also become available via Valve’s distribution platform. As the NCsoft store is now open, Steam will probably take the advantage as gamers can find a lot of the South Korean’s MMO games and expansion packs like City of Heroes Architect Edition, Guild Wars Game of the Year Edition, Guild Wars Nightfall, Guild Wars Factions, Guild Wars Trilogy, and Lineage II: The Chaotic Throne.
So if you are a Steam user, and you would like to play some of NCsoft’s games, then go ahead and download some. If you hurry up, you will be able to buy Lineage II: The Chaotic Throne for only $9.99, while the Guild Wars: Game of the Year Edition is available for $26.99. I will ask you once again: what are you waiting for?
