Steam

Valve has taken its digital game distribution platform mobile, launching a Steam app for iOS and Android.

Before you get too excited, that doesn't mean you'll be able to play Steam's extensive collection of games on your mobile. Instead, users simply have access to the Steam store, community forums and the ability to chat to fellow Steam members while on the move.

”With the free Steam app, you can participate in the Steam community wherever you go,” chirped Valve.

“Chat with your Steam friends, browse community groups and user profiles, read the latest gaming news and stay up to date on unbeatable Steam sales.”

Gosh.

The Steam app for Android and iOS is available now. ®
