Valve Reveals Steam Library Update, New Events Feature
Valve’s next big updates to Steam are a new events feature and a formal landing page for user’s game libraries with an overall redesign, Valve announced at GDC 2019.
“A lot of the emphasis of the things we’re working on right now in terms of features for both developers and customers are really for the way games are being built and played today,” Valve UI designer Alden Kroll said. “So, more live service games that need better communication channels with their players, for example.”
That communication channel comes in the form of Steam’s new events page, which you can see in the slideshow below. Events are categorized by major and minor events and show things like broadcasts, big game updates, tournaments, and even things like Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s weekly challenges. Event information can show up on things like game wishlist notifications. Kroll said this will help give context to why recommended games are relevant.
