Valve has just announced that the latest game with the Crysis branding, Crysis Warhead, will be heading to Steam mid-September and will be available for pre-order this weekend.
Already plunked my 30 down. Steam is a good convenience.
I'm buying this ASAP. I love Steam.
You know Steam is gaining, er, Steam when big titles like this come out, especially when EA published them to begin with. Awesome news
I wonder how this would do on my PC. I just dont like FPS games on PC.
DD is the future, and the future is now. So long, Bru-ray
with steam you can delete games that take too much space on hdd and reinstall them later if you want. Thats what i like.
I like steam, I can buy games in dollars and get them half the price they cost in UK.
Kinda weird they would be doing this, EA has its own download service so why would they put it on Steam? Anyways, it just means more people are able to download the game, will be picking this game up from retail soon enough.
One reason being because theirs isn't as secure as Steam and has never been perfect. Its easier for them to put it on Steam. Another being that the game isn't made by EA its published by EA. A publisher doesn't make the game it just puts it out there. Its made by Crytek. EA doesn't own them. Not yet anyway. Besides that maybe EA is planning to scrap their download service. Pirates still get around it and get Spore.
EA is publishing Crytek's games, but Crytek is part of EA's 'EA Partners' program. Under this program, I'm assuming, they have more control over how their games are distributed digitally than if they were owned and operated by EA.
I wonder why they didn't offer Spore over Steam? Then there would be non of that activation crap to worry about.
lets see Crytek whine about piracy now. bet they wont.
definitely getting this on steam over a dvd laying around too like someone mentioned above. This is good news for me.
