A new version of the Steam client is now available in beta, with new additions to the overall user experience and something very special hiding in this iteration.
Thanks to a recent discovery made by SteamDB, we got out hands on a piece of information that will certainly please PC gamers as well as Xbox enthusiasts. As posted on Twitted, a couple of photos were found within the software files. In the leaked pictures, you can see some modifications to how you the client is visualized alongside a “SteamU”, possibly standing for Steam Universal, for the picture files. This titles are what got people excited about a possible interface revamp, including Microsoft-exclusive games that you would usually need an Xbox to play like Forza Motorsport 5 and Halo 5 Guardians.
Steam on Xbox : Don’t get your hopes up
Everyone agrees that it would be fantastic to see those titles make their way to PC. Certainly, through Steam, seeing these games become available for PC is not an impossible task. However, while some fans are going crazy right now, others are a little bit more skeptical. This is due to an inconsistency in the image which makes them believe that we are dealing with nothing more than a design concept.
The fact that the list of games repeats itself is an obvious tell. Many still prefer to believe that we are still looking at a bright future. Their argument is that there would be no point for a designer to use games that aren’t in the Steam library currently as a placeholder. It remains to be seen what becomes of this discovery and what fans can hope for in the near future.
