Valve to host Steam Next Fest live stream this summer

The latest live stream to add to your cramped planner

Have you got a live stream coming up? You, personally? If not, then who even are you? It’s all about the live streams. You need two a month – no, a week – no, A DAY. Live streams is where it’s at now in this brave new world. Live Stream Work Makes the Live Dream Work.

Valve is the latest publisher to hop on-board the broadcasting bandwagon, with the announcement that summer 2021 will see the mega-bucks publisher host “Steam Next Fest,” a multi-day event showcasing the boldest and brightest PC releases headed to Valve’s digital storefront in the near-future.

Essentially, Steam Next Fest is the new rebrand for what was previously known as the Steam Game Festival. And between June 16-22 PC fans will be able to get all of the hot gossip on the latest news, trailers, and announcements, interspersed with developer conferences, Q&A sessions, interviews, and much more. As always, a selection of time-limited demos will be dropping on the Steam platform, giving players a sneak peek at a variety of upcoming releases.

While the Entertainment Software Association continues with its hopes of holding a returning E3 event this summer – in digital form if nothing else – it seems that most publishers and platforms are already planning to advertise and showcase their wares for 2021 and beyond through their own communication channels. It already looks like 2020’s “Endless 3” season is likely to return in summer 2021.
