Valve has added another development partner to its Steam digitial distribution network, with Swedish Simbin set to deliver its game Race over the service.

Launching on November 24th, Race will be available both online and off, with the retail version including all the Steam functionality that aids multiplayer matchmaking, auto-update patches and anti-piracy encryption.

"Delivering Race via Steam means over ten million gamers will have the chance to purchase the world's first ever World Touring Car Championship game directly from their PC," said Henrik Roos, CEO of SimBin. "Powering the retail version Race with Steam means every player will have all the latest content available for the game and be able to enjoy the industry's most advanced set multiplayer services."
