Not satisfied with just offering hardware, Lenovo will now have a dedicated online storefront for PC games and closed betas. The store will be limited to gamers in the U.S. for now, but the manufacturer is promising exclusive deals and a tight screening process to weed out "half-finished, half-hearted" demos.

While Lenovo has been offering gaming laptops since at least 2014 with the Y40, it wasn't until the manufacturer created the Legion brand that its gaming arm would begin to really take off. Lenovo has been pouring more resources into gaming products ever since with Legion-branded gaming mice, keyboards, headphones, and the recently released Legion C530 mini PC. To supplement the hardware, Lenovo will be launching a new online store dedicated to PC titles and software later this month just in time for the Holiday shopping season.

Called the Legion Game Store, the site will offer over 200 PC games when it launches ranging from small indie titles like Dead Cells to triple-A titles like Battlefield V. Lenovo is also promising special discounts as the OEM will be partnering with publishers for exclusive deals and closed betas to draw in more players.

Lenovo owners will be able to access the Legion Game Store through the Lenovo Vantage software that comes pre-loaded with most Lenovo PCs and laptops. The manufacturer says this will reduce clutter since players will not need to install any separate software to access the new online shop.

The store will launch on November 26, 2018 as http://www.gamestore.lenovo.com/.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
