Valve to launch Steam in China

Chinese game company Perfect World has partnered with Valve to launch a localized version of Steam, our sister site is reporting.

The partnership aims to provide Chinese gamers and developers with a new channel to access games and other entertainment products on Steam’s distribution platform. While an agreement between the companies has been signed, a launch date has yet to be announced.

The two companies have worked together since 2012, with Perfect World operating  Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Dota 2 in the region. Perfect World stated that the launch of Steam in China would not affect its existing Steam operations.
