Valve launching non-game software on Steam this September
Valve is set to roll out a line of software titles ranging from "creativity to productivity," hitting Steam on September 5. The software titles will incorporate Steamworks functionality, allowing automatic updating and cloud storage, among other standard Steam features.
This follows a leak on the Steam mobile app in July that listed a slew of software features (pictured above), including photo editing, audio production, design and illustration, accounting, video production and more. Steam recently launched the Source Filmmaker, which allows users to easily create in-game movies.
Software titles will continue to hit Steam after the initial September 5 launch, and developers will be able to submit software ideas to Steam Greenlight, its crowd-sourced idea system.
