CCP and Valve have teamed up to proudly announce that EVE Online will be the first MMO title to be available on Steam. They will be offering a 21 day free trial of EVE for Steam gamers, and an addition 5 dollars off their first month’s subscription.
EVE Online, the award winning massively multiplayer online (MMO) game from CCP, is coming to Steam, a leading platform for the delivery and management of PC games and digital content with over 13 million accounts worldwide.
To celebrate the launch of Steam’s first massively multiplayer online game offering, a special 21-day trial period for EVE will be available, free of charge, to all Steam gamers. Steam gamers will also save $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."
Not sure I see the point, since you can download it off the EVE site as it is…but hey, the more exposure for this fabulous game, the better!
