After years of settling for serviceable, Valve is finally updating Steam's interface to something a little spiffier.
We've known for a while now that Valve has been working on a UI overhaul for Steam. Valve isn't taking the threat lying down - though, at present, doesn't appear willing to match Epic's pledge to take only a 12 percent cut of revenue nor follow it in signing multi-million-dollar timed exclusivity deals - and in January this year unveiled a wealth of new features coming to the platform. Either way we're keen to check this out - as the ol' Steam library hasn't changed in years.
But, a good library shouldn't just be dusty shelves, it has to be a fun place to explore and find whatever it is that you're looking for.
You can see some screenshots of the new library in the gallery above.

This visual overhaul also adds opportunities to see what games your friends are playing, if there have been any updates for your games, and more. Well, those days are over. As part of the update, you will be able to create game "collections" instead of standard categories, you can also pin these to your library home screen for easy access.
Secondly, the addition of Events will highlight patches and in-game events, and give developers the option to share anything they like, from live streams to fan art. Valve says it wants you to know what's happening with the games you already own without bombarding you with notifications, and Events aims to do just that.
In a blog post today, Valve mentioned that the update will be made available for all users who choose to opt-in to the new Steam library beta when it launches on Sept 17 before mass launching the feature later on down the line for everyone.
