We are advised that it will be available on Steam and they also say "We have internally tested that the game works with NVISION 3D very nicely. It is fairly performance heavy though so a high end GPU such as the GeForce 580GTX and moderate graphics settings are recommended. We have not tested AMD HD3D but will aim to do so or get a 3rd party confirmation whether it works or not."
