Steam visual rework has finally officially been announced, after long years of waiting for Valve to do something about their outdated UI, and now, this new interface will be hitting beta sometime in the next few months!
Steam UI rework isn't simply going to change how it all meshes in practice, but also add a number of useful features, such as the 'Events' tab, which will allow you to quickly see all te latest stuff and fluff about games of your choice.
Clearly inspired by Steam's Big Picture, but without making it unnecessarily console-like, Valve intends to implement a wide variety of brand-new features that will enrichen your experience using Steam. For example, players with substantially large libraries will now be able to filter their games through the use of tags (custom tags included), while Events will have the ability to connect and correlate itself with your email, mobile phone, personal calendar apps, and more.
Furthermore, important things such as double XP seasons, new content releases, free weekends, discounts, and similar, will all be prominently featured in Events, which means that we'll have the opportunity for this information to be delivered to us however we see fit, thus minimising chances of us missing out.
As we mentioned before, Steam's visual rework is supposed to be coming out before the end of the year in full, but we can expect a beta testing period to hit in just a few months. Excited?
