Ubisoft's Mania Planet, known most of all for their titles TrackMania and the up coming ShootMania Storm have announced that all there game services will be available through Steam, including ShootMania's open beta.
Anne Blondel-Jouin, Nadeo Publishing Managing Director had this to say about the Steam releases:
"This partnership with Steam’s worldwide publishing platform allows us to introduce ShootMania Storm and all of the ManiaPlanet games and services to an even wider audience of PC gamers in the world. As a matter of fact, it is key to us that as many players as possible join the actual growing community so that everybody gets maximum fun with the game. Through Steam, we’ll make "competition for everyone" a dream come true for more gamers and map-and-mod makers who all create the user-generated content and activity that make ShootMania Storm so attractive and innovative on the FPS PC competitive field. I want to take the opportunity to thank whole-heartedly the players who have already joined ShootMania Storm frenzyness and to welcome warmly the new comers: we're looking forward to seeing all of them on the servers."
