Steam has a lot of loyal players and it appears that Valve has a program in mind to reward long-time users. Evidence of a loyalty reward system has emerged among Steam Datamers that offers reward items, badge levels, and – possibly – discounts on certain games. It also seems that we are getting more opportunities to respond to Steam user reviews.
“Valve is working on loyalty rewards / rewards,” SteamDB developer Pavel Djundik says on Twitter. “There is a points system and a system with which user ratings can be reacted to. Also includes reward items, redeeming points for badge levels, and possibly game discounts. “
The new responses to user reviews would give us more nuanced statements as “helpful”
It remains to be seen how – or whether – one of these features appears in Steam, but Valve has shown a tendency to experiment with things like Steam Labs.
These may be the reactions. pic.twitter.com/yEH0STES0v
