Valve has announced the official launch of the Steam Trading feature. Previously available only in a closed beta, all Team Fortress 2 and Spiral Knights players can now trade in-game items to each other, with support for Portal 2 coming in the near future. This feature also applies to games that have been purchased as gifts or Extra Copies. Valve has set up a Steam Trading FAQ to answer any questions players might have at SteamPowered Support and has plans to expand the Trading feature to other games in the future (as deals with publishers are reached).
So what are you waiting for? There are an innumerable amount of hats out there just dying to be traded!
Valve has been at the forefront when it comes to experimental pricing in the digital age of game consumption. They’ve also taken bold steps towards the “games as services” model. Now that ideal becomes more of a reality.
Team Fortress 2, one of the iconic Valve franchises, has now gone free to play. Robin Walker, who worked on the game way back when it was just a Quake mod, sat down with Develop to discuss the reasons for the move. Getting more people on Steam is one, as is learning more about consumer habits. But Walker also cites the fact that in multiplayer games, the more people actually playing it creates more value for each consumer.
Anyone yet to try out Team Fortress 2 should do so promptly, and be sure to read the full interview with Robin Walker.
