THQ digital distribution has stretched to Europe today with the launch of the E-Shop.
To drag you away from Steam, THQ will offer anyone pre-ordering promising shooter Metro 2033 a free copy of Red Faction: Guerrilla. What's more, the first 6000 people to pre-order Dawn of War II expansion Chaos Rising get the Librarian Wargear Pack for nothing. Nadda.
THQ's E-Shop is available in France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK, according to the little flags at the bottom of the site.
Games can be downloaded up to six times (and more should customer support nod) and installed on up to three different PCs - or on the same PC as many times as you like.
Take a butcher's at the THQ E-Shop website to find out more. And do bookmark it, as there may be many Steam defying deals in the future.
