Publisher Ubisoft hopes to become a major player in the PC space with a broader digital store.
The firm has been selling PC games via its Uplay service for some time, but has now opened that up to third parties, with EA, Warner Bros, Telltale and Bohemia amongst the companies on board.
Wider selection and overhauled policies can widen the store's audience, it is hoped.
Ubisoft was criticised by PC gamers for controversial 'always-online' anti-piracy protection. But the firm has now stopped the practice and Ubisoft's worldwide Uplay director Stephanie Perotti says it's listening very closely to feedback.
"Announcing all these partners for Uplay and a wider choice of PC games, it shows our commitment to PC, and we want to improve out relationship with the PC community," she told MCV.
"We are always seeking to improve. We took a lot of that feedback on board. With every game on PC we are improving. Far Cry 3 and Assassin's Creed III on PC were very high quality." Source: MCV
