Valve's video game distribution platform Steam has hit 100 million users, and to celebrate, it has been given an overhaul.
Titled 'The Discovery Update', Steam now has an easier to browse interface, meaning it will be much easier for you to find games relevant to your interests. The update allows
for a much more customized front page, letting you filter the things you do and don't want to see. But perhaps the most interesting part of the Discovery update is the addition of Curators.
Curators is a new section of the Steam interface that allows users to set up a 'storefront' of sorts. Whilst not actually earning them any money, it allows you to showcase your ffavoriteSteam games to the world, as well as explain why you think other people should purchase them. Finally, the addition of the aptly named 'Discovery Queue' gives users daily recommendations based on their most-played and recently purchased games, which can be ignored, bought, or added to your wishlist.
Finally Valve seem to be getting their act together when it comes to the design of the Steam storefront, and I personally am a big fan of the changes and extensions they've made. Do you like the new update, and will you actually be using any of the new features? Let us know!
