Steam Workshop is Getting New Features and an Improved Interface

Players will now be able to make use of more complex mod organisation features with Steam Workshop’s upcoming update.

Valve has announced a major update for Steam, bringing with it new features for the Steam Workshop, and how players can download and organise the various game mods available through the service. According to a post on the Steam blog, the company has announced that the new Steam Workshop features are available on the Steam Client beta branch.

As part of the update, players will now be able to track what mods are being downloaded through the Downloads page. Workshop will also get an improved interface, allowing players to manage the mods they might be subscribed to. More advanced users will also be able to make use of options like loading order for mods, and the option to disable mods from being loaded into the game.

For more complicated game mods that might have dependencies in other mods available on the Steam Workshop, players can now choose to subscribe to all required mods at the same time, rather than having to hunt down individual dependencies. The web interface for Steam Workshop is also seeing an update, with more convenient search options, and not needing players to refresh the entire web page when they add an item to a collection.
