Valve will present the community's best with new Hub pages

Valve’s next Stream update will highlight the best user-generated content available on the service.

User-created screenshots, videos and Workshop items for games across the service will appear in a new Game Hub.

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

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

“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 favourite games.”

A preview of a new set of features will appear between August 13th and 16th at the Steam website.

Valve recently announced that they would be adding non-gaming content to the service this September.
