Valve has made a significant replace to the way in which game retailer pages on Steam show DLC.
It’s no secret that DLC organisation, and the way in which add-ons usually are displayed on the Steam retailer, has been a large number just about for the reason that function was first launched.
It all the time felt like an advert hoc resolution that was by no means actually up to date in a significant means to deal with the large improve in DLC content material for games. Valve seemingly agrees, as a result of the Steam steward has lastly made just a few key adjustments to make looking DLC a lot much less of a trouble.
For starters, all games that promote DLC content material now have a devoted web page for all of their add-on content material. You’re longer confided to the lengthy checklist on the primary retailer web page. This already makes looking add-ons extra handy, however there’s one other, equally vital change.
Developers now have the power to label and type the various items of content material into completely different lists. For instance, a game might have a DLC checklist for characters, one other for beauty content material, and a listing for issues like 4K texture packs and different freebies.
At the underside of the brand new DLC web page, you’ll discover different methods of filtering via the content material, however the filters themselves look misplaced for a DLC web page. The engine reuses the identical format discovered on the Steam homepage, so it doesn’t fairly match.
For instance, in Siege’s DLC web page, you’re in a position to filter add-ons by genres like Strategy, Horror, Tactical and so forth. This clearly doesn’t make sense given the context, however the up to date web page is total infinitely simpler to navigate, so there’s that.
