Valve Intros Game Hubs, TF2 Co-op Mode Mann vs Machine
Valve is making changes to the Steam community while offering a new co-op game for Team Fortress 2.
Valve said on Monday that a major update is coming to the Steam Community. The company also released details on a new co-operative game for its free-to-play online action title Team Fortress 2 (TF2) called Mann vs. Machine (MvM).
First up, every title offered on Steam will now have a Game Hub which highlights the most popular user-created screenshots, videos, and Steam Workshop items as rated by the community. This content will be combined with related news, discussions, and comments for the game all in one central location.
"The New Steam Community is all about showing off the best content that gamers have created," says Emily Kent at Valve. "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 games."
From August 13th to August 16th, Valve will offer a preview of a new set of Game Hub features at www.steamcommunity.com/communitycontent, so keep checking back.
As for Mann vs. Machine (MvM), the co-op game will be available on August 15 and lets six players fight a lethal horde of robots on all-new maps, with the opportunity to upgrade abilities and weapons along the way. Players must band together to survive all of the robot waves in a variety of missions to earn incredible loot and unlock new achievements.
Leading up to its August 15th release, Valve will be making daily updates to its TF2 website, unveiling MvM content and key features. To find out more about MvM, head here.
