Originally called the Steam Game Festival, Valve changed its name to Steam Next Fest with the June 2021 event. For developers, in addition to providing player access to game demos, it's a chance to get direct feedback from fans on their upcoming games as the event also includes live streams with developers.
Steam Next Fest opens on October 1 at 13:00 ET and runs until October 7.
