I haven’t been not a big fan of Ancient Egypt settings myself, but…
If I had to take a guess, the dilemma prospective buyers have to solve is the following: this is the cheapest AssCreed Oranges has been so far, is the saving enough to make up for it not being a Steam key, but uPlay only?
And to keep guessing, Steam and Valve’s popularity seems now at a low point, also with the polarizing effect of EGS, more people may be more open to the thought of non-Steam keys than previously, though my belief would be that the majority that doesn’t speak all that much still has a preference for Steam keys.
The discount is substantial, even considering AssCreed Oranges alone; when the final reveals are factored in, it seems like a no brainer?
And yet that non-Steam key dilemma still hangs in the air. I haven’t run through any data systematically, however, off the top of my mind, I would say several AAA headliners delivered as non-Steam eventually were joined by early reveals, though I can’t recall if it was the case for them all.
Either way, it will be interesting to see how it plays out.
