A local version of Steam has been launched in China. The games are approved by the government - there are only 53 of them in the catalog

 Valve has launched the official Chinese version of the Steam store. As usual, it was not possible to do without nuances.


As noted by PC Gamer, the most important feature of the new version of Steam is the most severe censorship. Only games approved by the PRC government can be published on the site. Due to such restrictions, the Chinese version of Valve's store currently contains only 53 games, as shown in the screenshot below.

Local users are trying to lure a number of benefits. In particular, gamers are lured into very fast local servers forCS: GO andDota 2 , however, it is already obvious that this strategy does not work very well. If only because a serious surge in the popularity of the site in mainland China was associated withPUBG that didn't make it into the government approved directory.


The control point in the head of the new version of Steam is the complete lack of community and message board features. But Steam China is all of a sudden supporting user reviews of current releases. As journalists note, at the moment, the Chinese version of the Valve store with its content and appearance resembles the usual Steam from the end of the 2000s, in which, first of all, Valve's games were sold.
