From today until Monday, February 28, Steam users have at their disposal hundreds of demos to test titles that will soon be released for PC through the Valve platform. This is the first edition of Next Fest in 2022, an event that has proven useful in the past in adding games to the wishlist and increasing sales.
Much like Steam sales, Next Fest’s content offering is big enough to miss out on. Those who have their wish list up to date will have an easier time knowing if the title they are interested in can be tested during the event, which will not have to navigate through a sea of demos using the customization tools offered by the store. During the Next Fest, broadcasts are also scheduled starring the developers of the titles that participate in the event.
