Valve officially launches the Steam News Hub

By - | Views: 14,186

Giving you much more control over what news you see from games, applications and curators on Steam - Valve officially launches the Steam News Hub.

This new system is what they've had up in Beta for quite some months now since March, which they invited us in to participate back in September when they hooked up news feeds for curators like us. Today, the Steam News Hub has entirely replaced the old and basic news feed list.

With it you gain access to a much more personalised feed, along with various options to tweak it to your liking. It's quite useful but once you start following lots of games it can be easily overwhelming. Thankfully, there's also ways to mute specific games and mute different types of announcements. It's not just news though, it's also various upcoming events all under one roof along with official Steam announcements.

Find the new Steam News Hub here and be sure to follow us to get our latest recommendations and see all our news snippets related to Steam gaming.

News Hub is helpful, but unfortunately it doesn't show your friends' activity. And so it's not a full replacement for the older activity feed.

I don't want a dedicated news hub Valve, I want a changelog one!

I've been really enjoying having game news in my steam client. Great way to keep on top of updates without needing to follow a bunch of different rss feeds and keep micromanaging them. Plus I don't always feel like reading game news so having it compartmentalized outside the rss feed site I use is handy.

Forgive the social media comparison, but it's the only thing I can think of:

So it's kinda like a self-selected news/hype/announcement bubble?

I really don't mean that in a bad way. I can see people really enjoying game, site, or genre related news.

I would welcome Steam adding _donation_ buttons to MODDERS & Workshop content producers.
