Steam beta suggests you won’t be able to revert to old game builds much longer

The option to revert to an older build of a game has been an undocumented feature of Steam for a while now, but as SteamDB notes, the latest beta changes how the client connects to its content delivery network, removing the access customers had to previous versions of their games.

Going back to an earlier build wasn’t something every Steam user was likely to need—in 2020 what was previously a command line function was quietly changed to require a third-party tool—but it still had value. Updates to games like Grand Theft Auto 4, Beat Saber, Dragonball Z: Kakarot, and various Bethesda RPGs have broken mods and required either updates from the modders or rolling back to an older build. Some speedrunners and achievement hunters rely on access to specific versions of games, and they’re also worth having from an archival perspective. When an update to Age of Empires 2: Definitive Edition made old replays unwatchable, casters had to downgrade to a previous patch to get them back.
