Steam’s latest update includes redesign and new features

Steam redesign

Steam’s new look is now available for all users to enjoy, Valve announced on Wednesday.

Previously available in beta, the updated Steam Library features a new homepage with easier navigation.

“The new library home gives you quick access to game updates, recently played games, friends activity and your collections,” the company said.

The update also gives users information about their friends and games at a glance.

“You can find out what games your friends have been playing right on the library home page, and see what games they are currently playing from your games list,” Valve explained.

Additionally, game developers will have access to “event creation tools” to help them announce upcoming events and updates as well.

“The new event tool gives you the ability to connect with players and share other things like a developer live-stream or a community challenge, or even highlight interesting fan art,” Valve further noted.

Steam users can now update the launcher for access to the new features.

As part of a new partnership between EA and Valve, players will soon be able to purchase EA games on Steam too.
