Remember Impulse? They're no longer their own thing, after GameStop picked them up, but this is good news for Steam users who've always wanted to try Stardock titles. Since Stardock's platform now belongs to GameStop, the company can begin offering their games through Steam and other digital distributors without any conflicts of interest.
The move begins with one of Stardock's most popular and long running series, Sins of a Solar Empire. As of now, Sins of a Solar Empire: Trinity -- a bundle featuring the core game plus the Diplomacy and Entrenchment expansions -- should be available through Valve's distribution platform.
Stardock CEO Brad Wardell included a statement with the announcement:
"With the sale of our former PC digital download technology to GameStop earlier this year, we no longer have any conflicts of interest in offering our titles to other digital distribution channels. We are starting with Sins of a Solar Empire: Trinity, with other titles being made available over the coming weeks."
