The ever growing phenomenon that is Steam, has recently announced a deal with 2k Games, that will see the digital distribution software deliver four more top-notch titles from one of the gaming gods: Sid Meier.
According to Gamesindustry
you will be able to download both Civilization III
and the brilliant (I'm still playing it) Civilization IV
. You'll also be able to get your hands on (in the digital sense anyway) Shattered Union
and the swashbuckling Sid Meier's Pirates
No doubt in triumphant mood Gabe Newell released this statement:
"With titles from legendary designer Sid Meier and 2K's world renowned developer, Firaxis Games, 2K is one of today's foremost publishers. Through this initial agreement with 2K, Steam's game library expands to include four great strategy games. We look forward to delivering more from 2K in the future."
Apparently Steam already has somewhere in the region of 10 million customers. That number will only rise as Steam incorporates smash hit titles from other major developers. Before you know it we'll be buying all of our games from Steam, won't we?
These games will be available to download later this week, as of yet there is no news on what price they will be.
