Steam announced today that it will continue to support popular PC games on its store, adding more than a dozen titles to its catalogue.
The announcement comes after Valve and others announced last week that they were pulling support for games with less than 10,000 reviews from Steam.
The move is a welcome addition to a game-and-software industry that has seen a resurgence in recent years, thanks in part to the rise of Steam, a digital storefront with more than 400 million users, according to market research firm comScore.
Valve’s decision to roll back support is the latest sign that the digital platform is ready to take its rightful place as the dominant player in the gaming industry.
Other titles that are now available in Steam include:The Sims 3: Build-a-Sim game (9,000)The Sims 4: Build a Family game (7,000, including two free DLC packs)The LEGO Batman Videogame: The Toy Shop game (5,000 and counting)The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (5 million downloads)The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited (3 million downloads and counting), the last of which was announced last month, will all be free in the Steam store.
Other popular titles available on Steam include Call of Duty: Ghosts, Star Wars Battlefront, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft and Overwatch.
While Valve’s move to remove support for Steam games was announced on Monday, it wasn’t until Wednesday that the company released an updated list of games that will be available in the store.
As of Wednesday, there were more than 10 million titles in the games section on Steam, according the company.
Of the Steam games that were added to the store, more than 2.5 million have already been installed, and more than 900,000 have been downloaded.
Those games include titles such as The Elder Scrolls: Legends, Call of Juarez: Gunslinger, Battlefield 1, Fallout 4 and Hearthstone.
The company says the game-specific content in the latest update is the result of user feedback.
“We know many of you have been asking for more of these games and are thrilled to bring them to you,” Valve said in a statement.
“There are many games and titles on the list that are still available, and we’re happy to say that more than 100 more games will soon be available for your enjoyment.”
More than 5 million games are currently available on the Steam platform, according Steam’s statistics.
