NEW ON STEAM PAGE

We added a specific ‘new on steam’ page with a queue of new releases, allowing you to step back through the entire Steam catalog.
The page also features New Top Sellers, New content for your games, and recommended new releases.

The Discovery Queue has been a great way to discover new, popular, and recommended titles that you might not have expected. We’ve further expanded the queue to allow you to filter out products with specific tags or to exclude other types of products you’ve marked ‘not interested’.

USER REVIEW UPDATES
We’ve been iterating a bunch on User Reviews since we first released them. The most recent update posted a snapshot of what reviews look like for the most recent 30 days, providing an idea of what the current state of a game might be. This update also added a new list of the most recent reviews so that the newest customer opinions can be easily found.
Steam has always had a list showing the global top-selling games. But over time we found that tastes in some countries were really different from the global top-sellers.
As a result, customers in some countries now see a local top-sellers list by default.

EXPANDED LOCALIZATION SUPPORT
A series of updates added more ways to see and filter content around your language preferences. This includes:
- Letting customers that speak more than one language be able to specify in which language(s) they wish to view content.
- Adding support for game developers to post announcements in multiple languages.
- Filtering User Reviews based on customers’ preferred languages.
Edit Language Preferences
By default, we now send you an e-mail when one or more of the items on your Steam wishlist goes on sale or has been released.
We’ll also notify you on your phone if you have the Steam mobile app installed and notifications turned on.
But for me Steam is one of the best Game Store (4/5) I ever bought games.
