Success for Steam subtitles campaign

A campaign to get Steam to confirm whether or not a game includes subtitles in its listings has seemingly been a success.

MCV reported in July that UK gamer Kristina Barber has began a petition for the addition of such information, saying at the time that “I don't think in this day and age that I'm asking much to know if I can play a game or not”.

And although there has been no official reaction from Valve, users overnight spotted the addition of subtitle information on the digital PC marketplace.

“When I noticed the store I was gobsmacked, so overwhelmed with happiness that Valve actually listened to us and it's going to help so many people,” Barber told MCV today.

“I can't wait to see the further developments! Valve appear to be in the process of marking games with languages/subtitles on the new feature so I guess we'll have to sit tight and see what awaits us.”
