[h=1]Valve delays summer Steam Game Festival[/h]


Rescheduled for June 16




Valve’s impending Steam Game Festival, originally scheduled to begin June 9, has been delayed by one week. The “Summer Edition” of the Steam event will now run June 16-22, Valve said in a news release.
The summer version of the Steam Game Festival was supposed to take place during what would have been the week of E3. Valve promises time-limited demos or “short playable experiences” from upcoming games, and a chance to connect with participating developers of those games, during the event.



Steam Game Festival: Summer Edition was the third such event coming to Steam. Theinaugural event coincided with Geoff Keighley’s annual The Game Awards show, and ran for 48 hours. A spring edition of the event ran in March, during what would have been the annual Game Developers Conference, which was canceled due to concerns related to the spread of COVID-19.
Valve didn’t specify why it was delaying the event, but it’s likely because of the ongoing anger, unrest, and protests over the killing of George Floyd, the man who died at the hands of Minneapolis police on May 25. Since Floyd’s death, thousands of protesters have taken to the streets of cities large and small, and to destinations online, to denounce violent policing tactics and to shine a light on the racism and systemic inequality that disadvantages and cuts short black lives in the United States. Game companies, including Sony Interactive Entertainment, Activision, Epic Games, and Electronic Arts, have subsequently delayed product announcements and seasonal game updates as attention is rightfully focused elsewhere.

[h=1]Steam purchases now earn Points that can buy avatars and profile rewards[/h]






Spend money, earn points, spend points on other users





Steam has introduced a new meta-currency for users to earn, called Points. Whenever a user buys a game, DLC, Valve hardware, application, soundtrack, or in-game items, they will earn 100 Points per U.S. dollar spent.
Users can spend Points on a variety of things through Steam, including animated avatars, backgrounds for their shop, and animated chat emoticons. They can also reward other users for useful Workshop items or well-written Steam reviewers by donating their Points.
Valve says that the Points Shop is “here to stay”, and any bonuses unlocked through Points are permanent additions to a user’s profile. However, items purchased via Points cannot be sold via the marketplace or traded.
Some of these awards are quite handsome, like Portal-themed borders for a player’s avatar, or an animated emoticon of cartoon Geralt hopping and scrubbing in his bubble bath. There are lines of rewards associated with popular games, ranging from emotional platformer Gristo demon-slaying FPS Doom Eternal. There are indie titles like Disco Elysium represented with their own emoticons, side-by-side with Valve’s biggest hits like Dota 2 and CS:GO.
