Valve has just announced that it will be adding subscription-based games to Steam. [Editor's note: As some users pointed out, Steam has had subscription-based games before, but this is the first time the payments have been handled via Steam.]

The launch title for this service is Darkfall Unholy Wars, which costs an initial £29.95 followed by a £11.95 renewal fee every 30 days. Valve noted that further subscription-based games will follow.

Users are free to sign up for, renew, or cancel their subscriptions plans at any time directly through Steam.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
