Steam Now Offering In-Game DLC

Steam’s only one or two artillery shells away from becoming Skynet at this point, we think. First, it gained access to the Internet’s vast wells of knowledge, and now the thing can even purchase DLC , if it’s feeling so inclined. We’d be lying if we said we weren’t a little more worried than we’ve ever been in our entire lives .

“Valve, creators of best-selling entertainment products and advanced technologies, today announced the arrival of in-game downloadable content to Steam, their massively popular PC gaming platform. In-game DLC allows developers and publishers to use their own games as a platform for selling additional content to gamers,” read Valve’s press release.

In other words, no more middleman. Shift-tab, grab a few new items, maybe a war against China , and hop right back into the game. No muss, no fuss – just complete reliance on Steam quick, efficient fun.

GameStop , a bunker. A bunker, GameStop.
