Valve have announced that the Steam Community will be receiving a major update which will put more focus on user-created screenshots, videos and Workshop items for games on Steam. Game Hubs will be created for every game on Steam where the most popular user-created content will be showcased alongside related news, discussions and comments for the game.
Day one of the Steam Community update reveal focuses on the Game Hubs with, as mentioned above, everything to do with the game being available in one central location. Screenshots, videos and Workshop items will be rated by Steam users with the most popular being showcased on the Game Hubs.
Each Hub will have its own Discussions tab where you’ll be able to talk about the game without going to the Steam Forums and all the latest news will be available to view from syndicated sources.
Emily Kent from Valve had this to say about the Steam Community update:
The New Steam Community is all about showing off the best content that gamers have created. With over 89 million screenshots, videos, Steam Workshop maps, levels, mods, and items, plus news articles and product updates, the community has created an unbelievable wealth of content around their favorite games.
