Steam getting Family Sharing
Microsoft was the first who wanted to include a Family Sharing program into the digital gaming world, but they have failed. Steam, the number one platform when it comes to PC gaming has now announced the Steam Family Sharing.
The new program will allow users to share their entire library of games with up to 10 other Steam members. You will still be earning achievements on your own account and save your own progress when playing other friends’ games.
Each game from the library can be played by only one person at a time, while the original owner has priority. If the owner enters in the game he shared you, you will be able to either buy the game or quit out until he gets tired of playing it.
team Family Sharing will be entering a closed beta next week and will be available only for games that are not subscription-based.
