With the massive popularity of PC Game Pass, Valve says it’s ready to help Microsoft bring the feature to Steam.
Speaking of the company’s own video game showcase with Gamer on PC, Valve CEO Gabe Newell revealed that the digital distributor isn’t planning on creating a subscription service just yet, but would be happy to work with Microsoft to integrate its PC Game Pass. “I don’t think it’s something that we think we should do ourselves, create a subscription service at this time,” Newell explained. “But for their customers, it’s clearly a popular option, and we’d be more than happy to work with them to get it on Steam.”
In fact, there have already been talks between the two gaming giants, but Newell has yet to share any concrete plans to secure the partnership. “We talked to the people there a lot about this subject,” he added. “If your customers want it, you have to find a way to make it happen. This is where we are.
Unfortunately, even though PC Game Pass joins Steam, Steam Deck owners still won’t be able to run these games at first, as the device only runs on Linux. The good news is that Valve and AMD are currently working on driver compatibility for Windows, so those installing the second operating system might be able to use PC Game Pass after all.
Elsewhere in the game GRID Legends arrived with a new story mode and cross-platform multiplayer.
