Over the decade, the number of gaming enthusiasts has increased, and so has their demands. And, companies have never failed to upgrade their platform, gaming consoles, and games. Along with major high-end companies and brands, small gaming distribution sites and platforms have also seen an upsurge in their business due to the demands.
Steam is one such video game digital distribution service offered by Valve. It was launched in 2003, and later, they expanded their roots to include games from third-party publishers and opened an online web-based and mobile digital storefront. By the end of 2019, their service had over 34,000 games with over 95 million monthly active users.
Recently, Steam rolled out a new service called Steam News Hub. On this platform, Steam users can get access to a feed full of news, events, and activities of games owned by Steam. The news feed will be entirely personalized, and you will get recommendations based on the games that interest you. You will also be notified about the latest updates, contents released on their platform, announcements, events of the games you play, and more. And now, you can also add TheGamer to your Steam.
In case you are unaware, TheGamer is another platform that is on the rise. It is a gaming news site that is known for publishing video game news with a unique character, and looking for different angles of a story. Their stories and articles are easy to read and follow so people from non-gaming backgrounds can also understand. Although Steam’s News Hub is not entirely ready yet, you can follow pages and topics that suit your interest. It will keep you updated on all your favorite games, which you can access from the Steam website or app. To add TheGamer on your Steam account, follow the guide below.
Visit TheGamer’s Steam Curator Page and click on the Follow button in green color. Keep yourself logged in to your account to instantly get added to the follower list for our Steam page. Once that’s done, you can use a few ways to access the Steam News Hub to get personalized stories on your screen. To check your personalized feed, hover over to the Store section in the Steam app or website. From the drop-down menu, select News. The following page will show you a banner that says “Click here to try out the new Steam News Hub.” Click on it to find a feed of personalized news stories for all the games you follow.
