Steam Has Banned Developers From Posting Misleading Screenshots of Their Games


A new policy change is imminent for Steam – and it’ll bring about changes to what we’ll see in the screenshot sections when browsing the marketplace.

The changes are meant to help customers better understand what they’ll be purchasing, and will effectively ban any concept art, cinematic still images, and images ‘marketing’ the game, with awards and suchlike. Good or bad?

Almost definitely a good thing. More knowledge to the consumer is more power to the consumer, and it’s nice to know what you’re getting into when you buy a game.

Alongside the new ban on ‘misleading’ images, Valve will also be enforcing developers into taking more control of their images and how they’re presented to the Steam marketplace. For more on that, check out Valve’s official Steam post below.
