Gamers who have been following the popular City of Steam – which has garnered a hardcore following well before its release, with gamers those who have been following the game and anticipating every single move like a creepy ex from an online dating relationship – will be pleased to know that the game will be published in English-speaking territories.
R2 Games has inked a deal with Machinist Games to bring City of Steam to a broader audience. The browser-based game has had some successful closed beta results and has managed to become even more iconic thanks to the game's attachment to Steam's Greenlight. That's right, City of Steam will aim to get on to Steam's store as a free-to-play MMORPG set within a steampunk universe.
David Lindsay, CEO and Creative Lead of Mechanist Games commented about the publishing deal, saying...
"City of Steam is a game founded on community values, market-facing ears, player ideas and input. This is where our development focus needs to be, especially as the momentum snowballs toward release,"..."A partnership with R2Games gives us that extra boost needed to make City of Steam's great release, an amazing one. We share a vision that this game can be the very best browser-based MMO out there."
There's a lot of excitement because for one, it's a steampunk game and two, it's a free-to-play steampunk game with a really polished looking game design. The game starts with players just trying to make a home in the ruinous world depicted in the game. From there players will begin to unfold how the world came to be the way it is and attempt to restore it.
While the news about R2 Games publishing City of Steam is quite autonomous, you can actually get involved with the game by visiting the official Greenlight page.
