Valve has announced that today it will be “talking about the steps” it’s taking to make Steam more accessible on televisions and in the living room.

According to the firm, it has three announcements to make beginning with the first one dropping today, at 6pm UK / 7pm Europe.

The announcements will be posted here, and we will report on it in full as it drops.

The splash pages says: “The Steam Universe is Expanding in 2014,” so expect something interesting.

Gabe Newell said earlier this week at Linuxcon 2013 that announcements would be coming, so the notice today backs his comments up.

During the event, Newell said Valve was looking to the more open platform of Linux as the future of gaming, as “none of the propriety closed platforms are going to be able to provide,” a grand unification between “mobile, the living room, and the desktop.”

“Next week we’re going to be rolling out more information about how we get there and what are the hardware opportunities that we see for bringing Linux into the living room and potentially pointing further down the road to how we can get it even more unified with mobile,” he said.

In other words, watch this space on todayMonday, September 23.
