Updated September 14, 2018: All of these games are now available on PC. Disneyland Adventures, ReCore, Rush, Super Lucky's Tale, and Zoo Tycoon all cost $19.99 on Steam.
Today, Microsoft announced that it has partnered with THQ Nordic to bring a few Microsoft exclusives to Steam. Beforehand, the titles were only available on the Windows 10 Store which limited their commercial appeal.
ReCore: Definitive Edition has to be the highlight here because it's quite a thrilling third-person adventure. After a rocky launch, it's now a stable experience. Games like Super Lucky's Tale and Zoo Tycoon: Ultimate Animal Collection are also a blast to play due to their family-friendly nature.
- Disneyland Adventures – The package is a collection of minigames based on Disneyland attractions. It garnered surprisingly positive reviews at launch.
- ReCore: Definitive Edition – The "Definitive Edition" is the updated version of the original game. It features better textures and fixes a lot of the bugs that significantly impacted the experience at launch.
- Rush: A Disney-Pixar Adventure – This game is similar to Disneyland Adventures, but takes you through the words of films like Cars, The Incredibles, and Toy Story.
- Super Lucky's Tale – This jovial platformer follows a fox named Lucky as he burrows his way through a variety of environments to save the world.
- Zoo Tycoon: Ultimate Animal Collection – Have you ever wanted to operate a zoo? Well, this game gives you exactly that. While it's not a true simulator, it's accessible to everyone.
We would never have expected THQ Nordic to bring these Microsoft exclusives to Steam. Its unclear why the company didn't release them on the platform itself. However, more gamers should pick them up now as a result of this.
Will you buy any of these game now that they're available on Steam? Let us know.
