The Steam store has been updated today. It has a lot of new functional settings and finally looks better! I bet most of you guys won’t be able to switch to the new UI just yet, but lets all agree we needed a change after all these years.
The new update is called Discovery Update 2.0 – the next milestone of the Discovery Update released in 20014. Valve did a lot of good work on this one. The new design reduces the number of clicks you need to do in case you want to find something. The old store was a mess. Especially with all of those Early Access Titles on the main page, you can finally hide them!
Valve is now enforcing real screenshots in the store for each game – not some Photoshop bullshit ones.
Here are the highlights of the update!
More direct links to common destinations. Plus, sections you probably didn’t even know we had.
Now in the upper-right corner of every game image you will find a quick menu of options including quick access to your Preferences, allowing you to further customize your Steam shopping experience.
Quickly get back to products you’ve been browsing.
Whether it’s a hot new release, joining a special event, or getting back into a game that was recently updated, now it’s easy to tell what your friends are excited about.
If you are following Steam curators, we’ve added a clickable preview of their latest reviews and recommendations.
