Valve Launches Steam Discovery Update

  

Redesigned Steam Home Page Brings Recommendations, Curators, and Customization to the Forefront

September 22, 2014 – Valve today launched the Steam Discovery Update, which introduces new functionality and features designed to optimize the Steam shopping experience as the number of new titles on Steam increases.

In the past nine months, Steam has added over 1,300 new titles and grown to over 100 million active accounts. Designed to meet the demands of this growth, the Steam Discovery Update delivers a smarter Home page, offering recommendations based on past purchases, recent playtime, and recommendations by friends.

Steam Search has also been updated with extremely detailed filters. And a new feature called Curators allows anyone to become a taste maker and build a following.

"We have made great efforts to increase the number of titles we can publish on Steam, which means more choices for customers," said Alden Kroll of Valve. "This update introduces multiple features and functionality to help customers explore Steam’s growing catalog and find the games they are most interested in playing."

Steam is a leading online platform for PC, Mac, and Linux software, games and digital entertainment with over 3,700 titles and 100 million active accounts. It is the product of Valve, creators of game technologies (Source, Steam) and numerous best-selling game franchises (Counter-Strike, Dota 2, Half-Life, Portal, and Team Fortress).

It's very pretty, and seems vastly more powerful, but I'm struggling to "personalise" it...Quote

I definitely prefer it over the old version, but I'm just not used to it yet.

I've also been talking to TTL, and OC3D might recommend games through it's OC3D Gaming Group. Once it is set up i'll start a thread where we can try to add a few titles to our recommended list.Quote

I do quite like this, especially the "in library" notification when you hover over a title you already have.Quote
