Steam Users Could Soon Have New Way to Earn Rewards

Steam might be on the way to making its Discovery Queue more lucrative for users, as per a recent patent. The Discovery Queue has been quite a popular feature for players to find some hidden gems on Steam, and it seems like the new feature is set to attract more people by incentivizing them. The Discovery Queue was added a decade ago, and it has proved to be extremely useful for developers, especially for those with smaller-scale projects. The Discovery Queue suggests a list of games that users should try out, and it is curated particularly for them. Each user's own personalized queue is influenced by what genre they play the most, their wishlist, and several other facts determined by the Steam algorithm. Developers often employ several strategies to ensure that their game reaches as many users as possible via the Discovery Queue since it is essentially a way to promote their game for free. While users didn't get much out of it apart from discovering some obscure games on Steam, that might be changing soon.
