Valve Reveals New Steam Library Design

Valve reveals major Steam library redesign and new events page

Steam is getting a fresh new look for 2019

These new updates include improved game pages and a revamped game library section that shows your friends' activity, your recently played games and any new updates to the games in your collection.

The redesigned library is potentially the biggest change. Foremost among them are an overhauled game library and an event system that can be used by developers to keep players clued in about what's happening in games they own. It shows the players from a glance what's happening to the games in their Steam library, including event details, which events players can now play, and a clear call to action.

In addition to being reminded about Events within the new Library, users will have the option of being notified via calendar apps, email, mobile app notifications, text, and through Steam's notification box.

Players will also soon be able to sort their games using the same tag system that the Steam store now employs.

And now, BJP has welcomed the former cricketer Gautam Gambhir , who as per sources might contest from New Delhi constituency. He is the only Indian and one of only four global batsman to score hundreds in five consecutive Tests in the 2009-10 season.

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. The friends list is now in the top-right corner, and games played recently will be ordered chronologically at the top of the library. Streams, game updates, and tournaments were three of the features mentioned that'll be included in the Events page. If there's a major event scheduled for a game, the developer can make that known on Steam Events, where players will find all the related details and a button to get reminders when the event nears.

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