Steam Family Sharing Beta Now Live

Posted on September 26, 2013 AT 06:55am

Valve has started sending out beta invites for Steam’s Family Sharing program, so be sure to check your inboxes.

1,000 invites have been sent out to users who signed up for the beta. If you end up with one then all you have to do is follow these instructions. The service allows Steam users to share their game libraries with up to 10 users, each user is allowed to earn their own achievements and keep their own save progress.

It’s worth noting that a library can only be accessed by one user at a time and the owner of the account has priority access at all times.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
