Steam Game Festival Gets A New Name, Set To Take Place In June
PC players have come to call Steam “home” over the years, especially when it comes to playing video games on a computer. While there are other digital storefronts that offer various titles and deals, Valve‘s variant reigns supreme. That said, the seasonal Steam Game Festival has been rebranded and we now know when the next one will take place.
Taking to the platform’s website, Valve revealed that the Game Festival will now be called Steam Next Fest. As some of you may know, the festival has been used as a way to show off new games that may otherwise not see any recognition. In addition to this, the fest offers players a chance to check out a ton of various demos, which is great not only from an accessibility standpoint, but also for those who would like to try before they buy.
“We’ve renamed the Steam Game Festival to more directly communicate its focus: Announcing Steam Next Fest, a multi-day celebration of upcoming games,” reads the post. “Explore and play hundreds of game demos, watch developer livestreams, and chat with the teams about their games in progress, coming soon to Steam.”
Valve didn’t go deep into detail about the rebrand, but they did note that it is to better communicate the purpose of the festival itself: show off what’s on the way. Speaking of which, we will know more about what’s to come in the video game world on PC when Steam Next Fest takes place from June 16th to June 22nd.
