Steam to introduce Game Hubs

It must be a really busy time at Valve, what with Team Fortress 2 updates, a move to start selling applications, and now this: Steam will be adding “Game Hubs” to every game.

What’s a game hub?

The Hubs highlight the most popular user-created screenshots, videos, and Steam Workshop items as rated by the community and combine it with related news, discussions, and comments for the game all in one central location.

But apparently still no way to allow the community to rate a specific game. Still, I’m sure the social aspects will appeal to many people.

“The New Steam Community is all about showing off the best content that gamers have created,” says Emily Kent at Valve. “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.”

Valve have three more days-worth of announcements to make, so stay tuned.
