Valve’s Steam Now Supports Games With Subscriptions – Darkfall: Unholy Wars As A Launch Title

Valve today announced the addition of Subscription Plans to its offering of services. With Subscription Plans, Steam offers gamers the ability to sign up and manage payments for subscription-based games on Steam. The launch title for the new service is Darkfall Unholy Wars, with additional subscription-based games to follow.
Steam customers may now sign-up for, manage, cancel or renew game Subscription Plans at any time, online directly through Steam.
The next title with a subscription that will be launched on Steam is EVE Online.
This move from Valve seems, awkward. Obviously, this will give a big boost to a number of subscription-based games as they will be introduced to a wide range of gamers. On the other hand, this move may backfire.
Darkfall Unholy Wars is said to be an innovative, Real-Time, fast-paced, PvP, Sandbox MMORPG. Players are called to form clans and battle for dominance across the seamless, zoneless, uninstanced open fantasy world of Agon.
The game is priced at 39.95€ and there is a 14,95€ monthly fee.
