Upgrade for Steam Search Engine Improves Price Filtering

The game search engine on Steam has experienced several improvements that have been tested as part of Steam Labs program. From now on, players can more easily choose the price range they are interested in, add or remove appropriate tags or search among games localized in their native language.

IN A NUTSHELL:
  • Game search engine on Steam has undergone several changes, which have been tested over the last few months in the Steam Labs program;
  • From now on, users can, among other things, precisely define the price range, exclude and add appropriate tags or search among games localized in their native language.

The game search engine on Steam has experienced some minor improvements that have been tested over the last few months as part ofSteam Labs. The latest changes are the result of the creation of algorithms that help users find more interesting productions (e.g. Steam Labs' intelligent advisor). However, the creators point out that although at first glance the improvements may not be very impressive, they are necessary to improve the experience of searching for various titles.

Changes in Steam's game search engine.

But let's move on to the very fixes introduced to the Steam game search engine. Several options have been added so that users can clearly identify the production they are looking for. This includes easier selection of the price range (including special offers, i.e. discounts and sales), selection and exclusion of specific tags, hiding already known games or those intended only for VR goggles.

In addition, we can find productions available in our native language version, and the list of titles now loads infinitely, instead of being divided into subsequent pages (as was the case until now). You can check the new search engine at this address, and if you want to test other features offered by Steam Labs, have a look here.
