Autodesk Maya LT 2015 Coming to Steam

Today Autodesk announced that Maya LT 2015 is coming to Steam, Valve's popular entertainment platform. Maya LT brings its powerful animation and modeling feature set to Steam's active community of over 65 million gamers, developers and artists to help them create 3D game assets to personalize their games and bring them into popular Steam titles like "Defense of the Ancients 2" (DoTA 2) or to create assets for use in their own games.

"The Valve community is unique, because it includes a very engaged mix of both gamers and developers working together to mod titles and generate content. We hope Maya LT will further that creative spirit and help a Steam user of any skill level to create high quality 3D game assets," said Frank Delise, director, games solution, Autodesk. "We're engaging with the community on day one by participating in forums, answering questions and offering custom tutorial content for 'DoTA 2' fans. We can't wait to try new things with the community and see how they push Maya LT to its limit and beyond." 

A unique solution for professionals and hobbyists alike, Maya LT boasts a targeted feature set developed from the ground up for the indie game industry, like powerful modeling tools to help create and alter 3D assets of any size and a simplified workflow with the Unity 3D Engine. When purchased on Steam, developers will have access to a full commercial Maya LT license, allowing assets created in the tool to also be exported for use in any game on PC, console and mobile.

An online entertainment platform, Steam hosts over 2000 games in all genres. Users can not only instantly download and play games, but also create and share content through the Steam Workshop.

Available April 22, 2014, Maya LT term licenses will be available monthly for $50 USD and will be available in select countries. To learn more or purchase the product on Steam, visit: http://store.steampowered.com/app/243580 .

I don't see the pricing on the steam page. I guess we'll see in a few days when it's actually released. If it's the same pricing on the Autodesk site I can't imagine many people buying it. Especially considering the Modo Steam Edition at $150. Both have features the other doesn't though.

Not sure, but Maya LT is availble as both monthly rental, and one time fee.Last year it was around $30-50 a month, depending on duration of the rental. And the other option was $795So it's possible that it is the one time fee, option that is going to be on steam

Uhhh, are they going to have a monthly fee for a product on Steam? I do not know the rules exactly but I think there is a reason why there are no pay-to-play games on Steam.
