What is Steam

No, this is not the kind of steam you see when water evaporates. This is the Steam gaming client software that you install on your computers.

Steam was released by Valve back in 2003 as software to update Valve’s games. Valve is the proud owner of some famous games, such as Counter-Strike, Half-Life, DOTA, and many more.

However, they then started to include more third-party games in Steam and it slowly became an e-commerce hub for gamers.

A while later, they also introduced other features like group chats and broadcasts and developed complete gaming libraries, which made Steam a separate gaming community.

Steam currently holds 30,000+ games, both free and paid, which you can download right off the bat using the Steam client.

If you are looking to get your hands on the latest games and best deals, then download and install Steam using the links shared below.
