Steam update adds the ability to install multiple games at once

Posted on August 25, 2014 AT 08:09am

Tired of having to click through the install dialog for each individual game on Steam? Well a recent update has made it possible to batch install games.

Following the update earlier this month, players can now select multiple uninstalled titles in their library and install them at the same time, removing the need to go through the process for each title. Instead of the usual install window, a new UI will pop up when multiple titles are selected with a list of titles that are ready to install, and the total hard drive space they will take up.

However, bear in mind that while you may be able to select to install all of your games at the time, they will still download individually.
