The free online games portal Steam has revealed that it is adding a new feature to its popular free online game list.
As reported by the Wall Street Journal, Steam will now automatically list games from the most popular categories.
Previously, only games from those categories were displayed in the main page.
As a result, the list has been filled with some of the most-played free online gaming titles from the past year.
This week’s list is dominated by “Super Smash Bros. for Wii U” and “Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition.”
However, the Steam free online list does not include any of the big hit titles that Valve is working on like “World of Warcraft: Cataclysm” and the upcoming “Half-Life 2: Episode 3.”
Instead, Steam lists the top free online titles that it’s running on PC.
The list is also dominated by a selection of PC games that were previously only available on Steam.
For example, Valve is running games like “Battlefield 4” and Halo 4 on PC, as well as games like Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and Battlefield 3 on PC as well.
However, Valve will also be adding a “free games for everyone” section to the free online service.
This is likely because many of these games are in the public domain, meaning that they are not free to play on Steam and therefore are not on the list.
The company is also adding support for the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset to the list of free games on Steam, although it’s unclear if Valve is planning to offer the headset as an option to players on the free service.
Steam users have been reporting that their games were not being shown in the free game listings for months, and many have been calling for Valve to change the policy.
Valve has responded to this request by saying that the feature will be implemented as part of the next Steam update.
