Good news if you’ve purchased or are thinking of purchasing Elite: Dangerous from the game’s website: Frontier said that it will be offering Steam keys to all owners, including Kickstarter backers. The studio is also working to connect Steam and Frontier accounts for those who prefer to play through Valve’s service.
“We know a number of long-time players and backers like to play through Steam and we think it’s fair everyone has that option, not just new players,” Community Manager Edward Lewis wrote.
The Steam keys will become available on May 28th and will be attainable through a player’s Frontier account page.[Source: Official forums. Thanks to Dhalkar for the tip!]
