Page « Prochainement »

Présentation

Vous pouvez créer une page « Prochainement » pour votre produit bien avant sa date de sortie. De cette façon, vous informerez votre public que le titre sortira sur Steam et commencerez ainsi à vous constituer une communauté et à susciter l'engouement autour de votre produit. Pour les nouveaux produits, la page « Prochainement » doit être prête au moins deux semaines avant la sortie.

It is recommended that you publish your Coming Soon page as soon as possible. Right when you begin talking about your game publicly, you should launch your Coming Soon page to start collecting feedback and let customers Wishlist your game.

Avantages

Once your store page is visible to customers, it can help you build awareness for your product and generate excitement among potential customers. As soon as you have product branding, screenshots, a description and video showing your game, you can put up a 'coming soon' page to start utilizing the tools available on Steam. And you can update your store page whenever you need to once it's live.

Active le hub de la communauté : Once your store page is visible to customers, it will also enable the Community Hub. This gives you a place to post announcements, share artwork, and gives your audience a place to share their enthusiasm and discuss your upcoming release.

Permet l'ajout à la liste de souhaits : Once your store page is visible to customers, interested people can start adding your title to their wishlist. Once you reach your release date and hit the 'release' button, Steam will automatically send an e-mail to those people with your game on their Steam Wishlist.

Création de la page

Préparation : To post your page as Coming Soon, you will first need to create a new application, complete your release checklist and have your page reviewed and approved by Valve. To do this, click "Create New App..." on your Steamworks dashboard and then follow the checklist on your product landing page. Everything in the "Your Store Presence" section is required prior to posting your store page.

Évaluation : Once you have your checklist complete, you'll need to hit the "Mark As Ready For Review" button in the top section of your product landing page. This will make your product visible to Valve for review and approval prior to release.

Publication : Once your page has been approved, you will need to click the green "Post as Coming Soon" button for it to show up publicly as coming soon.

For more information on preparing for release, please see the Processus de publication documentation.

Emplacement et modalités d'affichage

Affichage de la date de sortie : You can control how your release date appears and how specific you are ready to be. Within your 'Edit Store Page' section, you'll find a section that lets you define how your date should appear, whether as the actual intended release date or as a custom string such as 'Spring'.

NOTE: Once your Coming Soon Page is live, you will be unable to change your release date without contacting us here. Veuillez définir une date aussi proche que possible de votre date de sortie effective.
Plusieurs raisons peuvent vous amener à modifier votre date de sortie sur Steam (changements de plans, retards, etc.), et c'est vous qui contrôlez cette date. Néanmoins, nous voulons que la clientèle dispose d'informations correctes et sincères dans le magasin.

Tarification : While you do need to have pricing entered and approved prior to making your coming soon page live, the price will not appear to customers. You may also change your pricing as you wish prior to release.

Visibilité : 'Coming soon' pages can show up in search and on appropriate 'upcoming' lists within the store. And, like any game on Steam, your game can show up in organic ways as fans share links within the Steam Community and elsewhere.

REMARQUE : une fois votre page « Prochainement » mise en ligne, des services tiers pourront récupérer les métadonnées de votre jeu, y compris les statistiques et les succès. Les statistiques et succès ne seront pas affichés dans la communauté Steam, mais ils peuvent apparaitre sur d'autres sites.
