CCP’s MMOG EVE Online will be digitally distributed through Valve’s Steam service.
To commemorate Steam’s first MMOG, a special free 21-day trial period for EVE will be available to all Steam gamers, as well as $5 off their first full month of EVE Online.
“Launching EVE on Steam means the addition of another fantastic PC game and the introduction of MMOs on Steam,” said Jason Holtman, director of business development at Valve. “The team at CCP continues to expand EVE’s universe and gameplay for the legions logging in to play each month, just as we continue to expand Steam’s consumer and developer features.”
“We are immensely excited and honored that EVE Online will be the first MMO on Steam,” said Magnus Bergsson, VP of Sales at CCP. “Steam has been the leading online distribution platform for a long time and home to some of the most dedicated gamers around, so we couldn´t think of a better fit for EVE Online.“
