Steam players will soon be able to share games across computers through a new family sharing plan. It will allow close friends and family members to share libraries of games for the PC, Mac, and Linux. The feature is due to hit beta next week.

This family sharing features allows these authorized accounts access to game libraries, as well as the functionality of storing personal saves via the cloud and earning personal achievements for the titles.

“Our customers have expressed a desire to share their digital games among friends and family members, just as current retail games, books, DVDs, and other physical media can be shared,” explained Anna Sweet of Valve. “Family Sharing was created in direct response to these user requests.”

Family Sharing will open to 1000’s of Steam accounts in mid-September.
