New digital distributor emerges: Atomblock

Distributor Atomblock is to launch a new download site in UK with 450 titles ready to download from clients including EA, Codemasters, Ubisoft and 2K Games. Atomblock plans to have over 1000 titles by the end of the year.

Atomblock is the latest player to join the increasingly competitive world of digital games distribution. The firm says it will open digital game shops for retailers and media, and its platform has already been picked up by MSN Benelux.

Much like many of its rivals, Atomblock’s service includes DRM, content delivery, payment, customer service and also reporting. Its clients will be able to launch digital download stores in the UK, Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, Spain and other territories by 2011.

Atomblock was founded in 1995 and distributes software and hardware in Benelux.

The more the merrier?
At this stage their website http://www.atomblock.com/ does not contain much info as of yet so I have no clue what games they will have available at launch, prices, if they’ll have any launch specials or if they’ll kick Steam where it hurts. But I might be a bit blind.

    Interesting, but if it will have even more region blocks then Steam/Impulse it will be worthless.

    The main problem with Digital Distribution is region locks, followed by retarded prices, followed by stuff like D2D Borderlands – this game can’t have any addons/DLC packs instaled…
