Zac’s Game Corner: Mass Effect 3 Not Coming to Steam

Mass Effect 3 willnot be released through steam. Bioware confirmed on the official website.

“Steam has adopted a set of restrictive terms of service which limit how developers interact with customers to deliver patches and other downloadable content.  We are intent on providing Mass Effect to players with the best possible experience no matter where they purchase or play their game, and are happy to partner with any download service that does not restrict our ability to connect directly withour consumers.” EA’s Origin service was also compulsory for PC versions Dragon Age 2 and Crysis 2.

I wonder what this will mean to steam if all the newest games fail to support it. I hope
Steam gets its act together and changes its terms. Leave a comment with your
thoughts about Steam and Mass Effect 3. Happy gaming everyone!
