Valve has announced a major Steam update that will highlight the best user generated content for games on the service.
Every game will have a associated Game Hub that will showcase the most popular screenshots, videos and Steam Workshop items, as well aggregating related news, discussions and comments.
The move underline's Valve's current drive to place Steam users very much at the forefront of its service, and echoes the recently revealed Greenlight initiative which allows players to vote for which games are published on the service.
"The New Steam Community is all about showing off the best content that gamers have created," says Valve's 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 favorite (sic) games."
The Game Hub feature is the first of a series of updates which Valve will announce over the next few days. It's not clear whether the Hub system will also be applied to non-game applications, which Valve announced would be coming to Steam in September.
No date has been confirmed yet, but beta access to Game Hubs will be available "soon" according to the press release.
