Valve has this week launched it new Steam Trading Cards system that allows Steam players to receive rewards for playing games.
The new Steam Trading Cards have initially launched in a beta development stage and enables Steam players to collect trading cards and sets of cards can be turned into game badges and tradable Steam community items.
Playing any of the participating Steam Trading Cards Beta games allows you to get your hands on the new Steam Trading Cards. Up to half the Steam Trading Cards set is dropped through game play, the other half is earned through your collecting prowess, Valve explains in a little more detail:
“Once you’ve collected a set of Steam Trading Cards you can craft them into a game badge. Like the current badges, they are tied to your account and are shown on your profile. Unlike the current badges, crafting games badges earns you marketable items like emoticons, profile backgrounds, and coupons. Level up your badge by collecting the Steam Trading Cards set again and earning more items.
All badges now have XP which contributes to your Steam Level, a summary of your badge collection. You can view someone’s Steam Level by hovering over their avatar. Leveling up earns you non-tradable items like profile showcases, extra friends list slots, and more.”
