I think you may be out of luck. From what I've read, the game is on route to be shut down in July, 2014, and as such, I don't believe new players can sign up. If you had the game client already and have an account with them, then you can definitely still play until July, but I'm not sure new players can join.

The above information is correct. While the game is now available through Steam, only people who previously had it before the gfwl marketplace shutdown can play. The game servers are set to shutdown in July when gfwl is offline.


While many games have recently been converted from gfwl to steamworks there has not been any word if this will happen. Regardless, it would prevent earning gamerscore.
