Steam is Redesigning Game Libraries, Adding New "Steam Events" Feature

Valve reveals major Steam library redesign and new events page

And the customers that are interested in finding out 'what's happening in games in my library, what kind of events are happening, what's been updated recently, what are my friends doing, ' making all that much easier for players to be able to find.

The Steam library home page will have a carousel dedicated to game updates and events, to keep players clued in about what's going on in their games.

The biggest new feature for the library, at least in terms of functionality, is an extension of the tags Steam has been using on the store for several years.

Valve is sprucing Steam up a bit for users by redesigning the library, and adding an events page.

Game developers can inform customers about ongoing events happening in a game, such as broadcasts, tournaments and game updates.

As well, this new Library design brings a horizontal feed showing what's new in applicable games the player has purchased; the information is provided in small banners overlaid onto the game tiles. Recently played games will now display at the top for ease of access and updates section will clue you in on which of your titles has just received new patches or content.

We think of this as the way developers will be able to communicate with players through Steam. Players will also be able to set reminders about the events that can reach them by way of email, text message, phone notification, Google Calendar, or other options. Events will inform you of what's happening now for the games in your library, and what major things are coming up in the future.

The new Library arrives in open Beta this summer, but before it does, we're getting a new feature called Steam Events.

According to the company, users can expect a redesigned library view with scaleable thumbnails and better categorization, says PC Gamer.
