Slowly but surely, Valve continues its quest for downloadable game distribution dominance, today securing a Steam deal with yet another publisher: Rockstar Games. As of today, Rockstar’s entire catalog of PC games has been launched on Steam, including each title in the Grand Theft Auto and Max Payne series, Midnight Club II, Manhunt and Wild Metal Country. All are available with a launch week discount of 10%, with a complete Rockstar Collection bundle of all 10 games going for a mere $53.95. The discount ends on January 11th, so act fast.

“We were immediately excited by the opportunity to offer our PC catalog via Steam because it allows us to reach out to gamers around the world in exciting new ways,” said Rowan Hajaj, Head of Finance and Corporate Development of Rockstar Games. “We are continually looking for ways to give back to our fans and this collaboration will give people a chance to easily revisit some of our greatest titles.”

“Rockstar Games brings some of most viscerally engaging games the industry has ever witnessed to Steam’s expansive library of titles,” says Jason Holtman, director of Steam business development. “We’re delighted to provide a place where gamers across the globe can discover all the fine work Rockstar Games has produced.”
