Sony Online Entertainment has signed a distribution agreement with Valve to bring its MMO titles to Steam, starting with the EverQuest and EverQuest II collections, as well as Vanguard: Saga of Heroes and Pirates of the Burning Sea.
“We are always looking for additional ways to introduce our great catalog of games to new audiences. It’s hard to think of a larger group of PC gamers interested in multiplayer games than those connecting to Steam,” said John Smedley, president of SOE.
Inexplicably, old versions of EQ and EQ2 are being offered through Steam as well. Users have a choice of purchasing last year’s EQ1: Secrets of Faydwer and EQ2: Rise of Kunark at a reduced cost. I am not a Steam user, but hopefully it is obvious which versions are the latest so people aren’t confused. I’d hate for someone to buy Kunark, realize it’s a year old, and then to get TSO they have to spend another $40.
