Valve has this week made their new Steam Library makeover available to all via an open public beta, providing a new Steam layout for game pages, events and more. Anybody is now welcome to join the Steam Library Beta and can sign up by registering their details via the link below. “Find a whole new world of useful information and content on your game detail pages” explaisn Valve.
“We’ve brought together everything from the developer, your friends, and the community into a single place to make it easier to keep up with what’s happening outside the game. Your library is your gaming history it should be a pleasure to peruse. The new Steam library makes it quick and easy to explore, sort, hide, and feature your games.”
“To power the new Library features, we’ve also rolled out new tools for posting events and announcements. We’re giving you more control and flexibility than ever before to communicate with players through the store, your community page, and now in the library!”
Features of the new Steam Library design include :
– UPDATES – When games in your library receive an update or host an event you’ll be the first to know. Click on an event to browse all the recent updates for that game.
– RECENT – If you want to pick up where you left off this shelf shows the games you played or purchased most recently. Just push the big green button to jump right back into the action.
– FRIENDS’ ACTIVITY – Looking to socialize? You can see what your friends have been up to and which games they are currently playing. You might even find a new game worth picking up.
– CUSTOM SHELVES – Customize your Library Home page however you want. Add a custom shelf or ten. The choice is up to you. Highlight your favorite collection(s) or just show off all your games.
