New Steam Store Update Makes Searching For Games Easier

Valve has released a new update to the Steam store search that will make the process of searching for particular games easier now.

The Steam store search bar will now return matches for tags, developers, publishers, and franchises as long as they are reasonable matches. For example, users can now search for categories like “RPG” or “zombies” and it will return several results.

Users can also search for specific publishers. Searching for companies like “Square Enix” or “Sega” will show the publisher’s hub in the search bar’s drop-down menu. Additionally, the new update accommodates more spelling mistakes or misspelled words. For example, searching “Finl Fantasy” will return Final Fantasy titles in the search results.

Along with the Steam PC client, the update has also been applied to the Steam Mobile App and Steam website on mobile devices.

Valve recently rolled out new features for the Steam client that revamps its in-game overlay and lets users watch movies (among other things) while gaming. It’s also important to note that Steam will not be supporting Windows 7 and 8 starting in 2024.
