Valve has been continuously pushing updates to Steam to offer gamers a redefined experience. And the updates are not really centered around adding more games and new tools for the players and sellers. Instead, they also focus on adding new features to make the platform more gamer-friendly. Take the latest Steam game trials feature, for example.
Now, while the Steam game trial will only be available for specific games, it will undoubtedly be a handy feature for loads of gamers. And no, it is not the same as game demos. Game demos typically only offer a small part of the full game. In comparison, the new feature of Steam offers you complete access!
What Steam Game Trials Is All About
So, with Steam game trials, you will be able to fully play a specific game for a certain amount of time. At this phase, Valve is offering a 90-minute window. And to introduce the feature, Valve has selected Dead Space as the first game to come with the latest feature.

But eventually, Steam will roll out the game trials feature to other games. And when that becomes a reality, you will be able to try out the games and see all that it has to offer before making a purchase. In other words, there will be no need to go through the hassles of getting a refund if you do not like the game.
Admittedly, the 90-minute time frame may seem very limited, especially when you consider that games today have a story mode that takes days to complete. But this limited time frame of Steam game trials will definitely let you get a taste of the game’s story. Alongside that, you can see how the game runs on your system before purchasing.
So, when a specific game with the game trial feature does not run well on your PC or Steam Deck, you can just uninstall it. Also, as Valve is already offering Dead Space, a high-profile game, there could be more major games with game trials very soon.
