The video game soundtracks They are one of the aspects of this industry that has evolved over time. As the years have progressed, we have seen increasingly ambitious, exquisite and varied compositions, as recently seen, for example, with Death Stranding. Therefore, it is not surprising that they have become a product increasingly requested by players. With this idea in mind, Valve has taken a step that was necessary. From now on it's easier to buy game soundtracks on Steam.
As reported from ComicBook, the change has already been applied, and the truth is that it was something necessary. Before, the video game platform of Valve treated the BSO as DLC of their respective games
Was a quite necessary change, since it limited freedom to users who played on other platforms or consoles. A step with all the sense of the world that makes Steam a slightly more accessible and versatile ecosystem, which continues to increase the presence of varied contents and that go beyond the games themselves and their expansions.
If you had ever wanted to get the OST of your favorite game here, and you couldn't, try again. You are going to take a pleasant surprise.
The change of BSO affects users and devs on Steam
Part of this update is intended for the consumer, as we have already explained; However, it has a double side. And, in addition to allowing the purchase to any user, it also makes things easier for companies after the games and their songs
For this, the platform now has an own directory for this type of product. Through this, and a more accessible system for devs, they can add images for albums, annotations, additional details and even set different sound options. A good accumulation of options and configurations that makes something flexible that was previously excessive, and illogically, rigid.
Other small big step for a platform that continues to demonstrate the power of Valve in the video game industry and, above all, in the field of PC gaming. More facilities for players, developers and publishers. In short, more facilities for everyone who gives life to this sector dedicated to leisure.
