Steam client beta adds new Community home page, new artwork hubs

If you’re opted into the Steam client beta in your settings, then you’ll no doubt already have noticed a new and improved Community home page, along with a bunch of other changes.

The changes are part of an attempt to clean up the clutter that has arisen around the continued expansion of Community features, and include an improved drop-down navigation system to make it easier to find your favourite things faster.

A new ‘Artwork’ tab has also been added, in recognition of the fact that many users will wish to upload things that aren’t just screenshots. This will be rolling out to Valve games first and, if successful, will then move to other, third-party titles.

The Community page was a good idea but it needs to be redesigned.

 

I quite like the community pages. Really like going through the friend feed and viewing friends screenshots, achievements etc. But man it’s slow as hell.

 

I’m not using the Beta at the moment, but I really like the current Community page. Have it bookmarked in my browser as it is a great feed on what my Steam friends are playing etc.

Might have to try the Beta and see what they have improved.
