Steam Guides goes live

User-created player guides and references free for all

Valve has announced that Steam Guides have gone live on its PC digital distribution platform.


Steam Guides allows players to create and/or find guides for their favorite games or Software titles on Steam.

"Steam Guides lets players create and share guides, walkthroughs, and tips for their favorite games or software to help others who might be stuck or who simply want to learn more about the game," explains Valve.

"Players may easily create guides through Steam, where they may upload images, add screenshots, and embed YouTube videos. Guides are then quickly accessible through Steam, via the Steam Community and in-game via the Steam Overlay."

At the time of writing, 1,016 are already available.

Valve boss Gabe Newell has spoken at length about Steam Box in recent interviews, confirming that Valve will release its own hardware separate to Project Piston, but likely not this year.
