Valve Launches Steam Guides

Valve, creators of best-selling game franchises (such as Counter-Strike, Half-Life, Left 4 Dead, Portal, and Team Fortress) and leading technologies (such as Steam and Source), has announced the launch of Steam Guides, a new capability of the platform that allows players to create and/or find guides for their favorite games or Software titles on Steam.

As of the writing of this article 1,594 guides have been created.

Steam Guides lets players create and share guides, walkthroughs, and tips for their favorite games or software to help others who might be stuck or who simply want to learn more about the game. Players may easily create guides through Steam, where they may upload images, add screenshots, and embed YouTube videos. Guides are then quickly accessible through Steam, via the Steam Community and in-game via the Steam Overlay.

You can find guides in the Steam Overlay or from any Community Hub. You can easily find guides from whatever game you are playing on Steam: Simply open the Steam Overlay while playing a game (the default is pressing Shift + Tab). In the overlay, you’ll see a section dedicated to the top rated guides or any that you have recently viewed or marked as a favorite. You can easily browse for more, or open a recent guide directly from there--all without ever having to leave your game.

Or, you can find guides through the Steam Community by visiting any Community Hub and clicking the "Guides" tab.
