New on Steam: Subscription plans for MMOs and the like


And the option to limit your download rates

In a new feature rollout, Valve has added the ability for developers to incorporate subscription plans within the digital-distribution client. In other words, users can sign up, manage, cancel, or renew their game subscriptions without leaving Steam. Headlining this feature is MMORPG Darkfall: Unholy Wars, a game that you are now aware exists.
