Valve has announced today that Steam will be receiving a major update. The update will encourage the creation of gaming communities by giving every game a “Game Hub” where players can share screenshots and videos as well as start discussions.
“The New Steam Community is all about showing off the best content that gamers have created,” says Emily Kent at Valve. “With over 89 million screenshots, videos, Steam Workshop maps, levels, mods, and items, plus news articles and product updates, the community has created an unbelievable wealth of content around their favorite games.”
Sounds like a good idea to me. Giving gamers another outlet to discuss and share their favorite gaming moments via Steam will make things easier for those looking for a gaming community.
