Provides Developer-Driven Visibility For Major Game Updates
February 7, 2014 - Valve today launched a "Recently Updated" section on Steam that highlights titles offering new and interesting updates, features, and/or content additions.
Designed to give developers more ways to communicate with gamers about their products on Steam, this public release was matched with a tools release that lets developers elect when to add their update to this product area and what to say about the contents of their latest update.
"The more options developers have for communicating about their products, the better it is for everyone," says Tom Bui of Valve. "With this new product section and corresponding developer tools, customers can more easily discover products that provide ongoing value and involvement from the developers."
Additionally, a new page in Steam lets customers easily browse through recent updates to titles they have purchased or activated on Steam.
