The company requires disclosure of AI for game reviews and display on the game’s Steam store page
Kodoani.com – Valve Corporation has announced that game developers will need to fill out an “AI disclosure” section when submitting games to Steam. This change is intended to increase transparency about the use of artificial intelligence in games, and if the game is approved, Steam will display information about how the game uses AI on its store page.
Valve Corporation’s blog post addressed the legal aspects of AI technology and emphasized that the changes are aimed at increasing transparency in the handling of games that use AI. Valve is encouraging transparency and allowing developers to submit games that use what they don’t necessarily own.
The new regulations classify the use of AI in games into two categories:
Created before: Any content created with the help of an AI engine during game development. Valve will evaluate the results of AI-generated content the same way it evaluates non-AI content.
Created directly: Any content created with the help of an AI engine while the game is running. In addition to the same rules as pre-generated AI content, there is an additional requirement: in the Content Survey, developers need to indicate what type of guardrails are being applied to AI to ensure that content is not created. illegal content.
Valve is also rolling out a new system on Steam so players can report “illegal content in games that contain live AI-generated content.” This highlights Valve’s commitment to maintaining a safe and positive gaming environment.
