Rockstar builds up Steam

Publisher's entire back catalog of PC titles now available through Valve's online digital distribution service.


As digital distribution's popularity continues to grow, so too does the number of publishers offering their games through download services. Today, Rockstar Games announced it would be offering its entire back catalog of PC games through Valve's popular digital distribution service, Steam.

Rockstar's support for Steam includes 10 games. Among that number are the complete Grand Theft Auto series, ranging from the original GTA through Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, as well as Midnight Club II, Max Payne, Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne, Manhunt, and Wild Metal Country.

Gamers who prefer to shop in bulk can purchase the entire Rockstar Collection for $59.95 or can get just the GTA Collection for $29.95. Since Rockstar has previously made GTA, GTA2, and Wild Metal Country available as free downloads through its Classics series, the three games are available only through Steam as part of their respective bundles.

Promoting the addition of Rockstar's PC games, Valve is also offering a 10 percent discount on all of the publisher's titles for the first week.
