Valve has announced the release of Steamworks, a complete suite of publishing and development tools ranging from copy protection to social networking services to server browsing. SteamWorks is now available free of charge to developers and publishers worldwide.

Steamworks, the same suite of tools used in best-selling PC titles Half-Life 2 and The Orange Box, is available for all PC games distributed via retail and leading online platforms such as Steam. The services included in Steamworks may be used a la carte or in any combination.

Steamworks Features:
  • Real-time stats on sales, gameplay, and product activation
  • State of the art encryption system
  • Territory/version control
  • Auto updating
  • Voice chat
  • Multiplayer matchmaking
  • Social networking services
  • Development tools
Valve's SteamWorks offers game developers powerful tools to assist in more rapid development of games. Game creators can now concentrate on game's core features, instead of developing the auxiliary functions offered by the SteamWorks suite.
