Piranha Bytes: Steam popular with gamers, offers a high level of security

Posted By | On 04th, Apr. 2012

Björn Pankratz, Project Director at Piranha Bytes, has mentioned in an interview with GamingBolt that Steam offers a high level of security and is undoubtedly the best digital distribution platform on the PC.

“It is far from lucrative for both our publisher Deep Silver and us to find that the game can be downloaded free of charge on the internet two days before the release, so we opted for Steam this time, a platform that is widely used and popular among gamers, as well as providing quite a high level of security,” he said.

“We hope it will prove to be the best possible solution for everyone.”

We also asked him about which platform offers the best experience for Risen 2, and this is what he had to say.

“Although, we develop our games on the PC, privately some of us are console gamers and others prefer PC games. The advantage of consoles is quite clearly convenience – you can watch the game on a big TV screen while sitting comfortably on your sofa, while PC gamers usually sit at their desks.

“On the other hand, PC gamers get to enjoy better graphics, for example. So people should decide for themselves what is more important to them,” he added.
