Valve loves offering free stuff to their consumers – or at least so it seems since they’re offering, for free, five Source MODs. Of course, in order to get them you must be the owner of at least one Source-based game. Also, it appears that in the future these MODs might not be offered for free, so you’d better hurry to take yours now!
But that’s not all! In order to celebrate the launch of MODs on Steam and give gamers an easy entry into the world of Source MODs, Valve is offering Half-Life 2: Episode One for just $4.99. The original Steam MOD squad is comprised of: Age of Chivalry, D.I.P.R.I.P., Insurgency, Synergy, and Zombie Panic.
“Valve has been supporting the MOD community since the company’s inception, offering updates to the SDK, holding MOD Expos and being the first to bring a MOD to retail with Counter-Strike in November 2000,” said Doug Lombardi, vice president of marketing at Valve. “The debut of these MODs on Steam marks the beginning of a new level of support for the MOD community by putting the leading MODs at the finger tips of over 15 million targeted gamers.”
In order to get your free MODs head over to the official Steam website. And while you prepare to download them, it’s worth noting that all these freebies are using Steamworks, too!
