Valve is Changing the Way We Buy Game Soundtracks on Steam

It is much easier to access video game soundtracks as Valve has enable new functionality to better support gaming soundtracks on Steam.

Valve has separated their video game’s OST from their associated games on Steam and allow them to be sold standalone as a new soundtrack app type. With the new improvements in place:

  • Customers can now purchase soundtracks without purchasing the base game.
  • Customers can now download soundtracks without downloading the base game.
  • Customers can browse and manage their owned and downloaded soundtracks directly from the new Steam library.
  • Customers can configure a Steam “music” directory where all soundtrack content will be placed, rather than having to locate it in subdirectories of game content.
  • Developers can upload and manage soundtrack content entirely through the partner site, without using steamcmd.
  • Developers can sell soundtracks where the base game itself is not available for sale on Steam.

On top of that, the developers have also added some brand new functionality:

  • Soundtracks can support multiple quality levels. Every soundtrack will contain a set of standard MP3s, but soundtracks can also include optional high-quality audio depots (ie., FLAC, or raw WAV). Individual customers can opt-in to these larger, higher-quality audio files.
  • There’s a new interface for soundtracks in the Steam Library. This interface is minimal for now, but is designed to make it as painless as possible to perform the most common actions: playback, browsing, and managing contents.
  • Soundtracks can now contain bits of associated content, including album art and liner notes. These bits of content can also be viewed from the details page for a soundtrack in the Steam Library.

Valve is also planning to run a sales event and release even more features this coming January 20, 2020.
