Ubisoft adds portfolio to Steam

US only, for now, bizarrely.

Ubisoft is offering over 40 of its games to North American members of Steam.

The reason us Europeans are not recieving the content is unclear, but apparently it was Ubisoft's decision.

"It's their call," Doug Lombardi, Valve marketing mouth, told Rock Paper Shotgun. "We offer worldwide coverage, and we're happy to offer the products to as many customers as the publisher/developer desires."

Ubisoft is offering more titles than any of the other companies signed-up so far, which includes Activision, SEGA, THQ, 2K, Eidos and Rockstar as well as developers id Software and Epic Games.

Among the Ubisoft games to be sold via Steam will be the upcoming release of Assassin's Creed on PC. It's available for pre-purchase now and will be playable on 9th April, a couple of days before the European retail version.

Other brands such as Tom Clancy, Heroes of Might & Magic and Far Cry will be on offer soon.

Steam currently caters for more than 15 million of you around the world.

Pop over the Steam website to find out more.

Ubisoft has been contacted for comment.
