Why has Free-to-Play Shooter Enlisted Been Removed from Steam?

Another one bites the dust

It’s not everyday that a well-established video game like Enlisted, coming from a reputed publisher like Gaijin, is removed from digital stores like Steam. Yet, the unexpected has happened, as the early access title has been taken down from one of the world’s largest digital video game stores. This has puzzled a lot of those who are wondering what might have happened.

Enlisted had a Major Pricing Controversy

It’s not a good idea when a video game requires a purchase at one place and is available for free on another. Players have been able to download the game for free from Gaijin’s website, but the same privileges weren’t offered to those on Steam. If players opted to play on Steam, they’d have to spend $19.99 to get a different version.

While the DLC pack did offer certain extra perks along with the base game, it was a controversial policy. The DLC meant that there was no way for players to play Enlisted for free on Steam, while they could do so by downloading directly from Gaijin’s website. This led to the second part of the controversy.

Enlisted and its Inability to Transfer Progress

Even when players did decide to shell out $20 to get a copy on Steam, they were in for a rude awakening. Despite several attempts, they weren’t able to transfer their in-game progression. This occurred when someone’s Steam account, with a different mail from the one used in Enlisted, was linked with another Gaijin game. This created a lot of furor as many players had to start afresh even when they didn’t intend to do so.

For now, those who have purchased the Reinforced DLC pack will be able to play via Steam. However, no fresh purchases are currently possible until the early access resumes. A date has not been stated, so new players are better off getting the game directly from Gaijin.
