Valve really does prepare for every possibility, so their Steam platform has adopted a new subscription payment plan, namely for MMO-esque games. The first game to utilize this plan? An indie MMO RPG by the name of Darkfall Unholy Wars, which made it on to Steam through the community voting tool Greenlight.
This game in particular is available for $40, with a follow-up monthly subscription of $15. Players can, of course, cancel at any time.
Now we'll see if any others will follow Darkfall in utilizing Steam's new subscription payment plan. It would undoubtedly make many MMO players happy, if only due to the convenience factor of having MMOs native to the Steam platform.
