At A Glance

This Alert Affects:
Anyone who has a Steam account and purchased one or more games through the Steam Store.
What’s Going On?
An ongoing antitrust lawsuit claims anticompetitive rules imposed by Steam operator Valve Corporation have forced game publishers to pay an excessive 30% commission to sell their games on the platform – which, in turn, has allegedly caused consumers to pay inflated prices for PC games. Attorneys are now gathering consumers to take legal action against Valve and potentially recover compensation.
What You Can Do
If you have a Steam account and bought one or more games from the Steam Store, join others taking action by filling out the form linked below.
What Am I Signing Up For, Exactly?
You’re signing up for what’s known as “mass arbitration,” which involves hundreds or thousands of consumers bringing individual arbitration claims against the same company at the same time and over the same issue. This is different from class action litigation and takes place outside of court.
Does This Cost Anything?
It costs nothing to sign up, and the attorneys will only get paid if they win your claim.
How Much Could I Get?
While there are no guarantees, the attorneys believe consumers may be able to get a refund of up to 60% of the amount they paid for games.
