A few thousand (well, more like 100,000) lucky gamers can now use the new Steam community features announced this week by Valve.

The new features, which include organized hubs for each game, new group organization, updates about your uploaded content, and a new friend interface, are now operating in a beta, according to an update from Valve.

Check your steam!

[Steam] Valve Announces Beta for Steam Community Update

Quote:
August 16, 2012--Valve, creators of best-selling game franchises (such as Counter-Strike and Team Fortress) and leading technologies (such as Steam and Source), today announced the launch of a limited access Beta for its new Steam Community features.

The Steam Community Beta is now open to the first 50,000 players who earned the 'Pillar of the Steam Community' badge and includes another invite to share. Beta access will increase incrementally until the public launch.

To celebrate the launch of Team Fortress 2's new game mode, Mann vs. Machine, the Team Fortress 2 Game Hub is now accessible to everyone.

Source


Luckily I was one of the first 50,000 to get that badge. Looks pretty cool so far.

Client looks different.



From what I can tell, Friends tab is a redesign of the old Community tab. The new Community tab is where the new Game Hub, Steam Workshop, and Greenlight sections reside now.



Also you can right click on the game and there are new categories like News, Game Hub and Forum link.

I think Valve is encouraging us to buy it for our friends so they can play it with us, a clever strategy I do think. thinking.gif
