Product Update - Valve
A dedicated Mac version of Metro: Last Light is now available via Steam, with development duties handled in-house by 4A Games.

The studio are also putting the finishing touches to a Linux version, scheduled for release a little later in the year.

Metro: Last Light on Steam supports Steam Play, meaning that owners of any Steam version will automatically find the game has been added to their PC, Mac and (ultimately) Linux Steam libraries.

Metro: Last Light for Mac and Linux will also receive the same DLC packages as the Windows PC and console versions. Mac players can already download Ranger Mode and the RPK, and the first two pieces of DLC from the Season pass - the Faction Pack and the Tower Pack. And of course, purchasing the Season Pass will grant access to the last two DLC's scheduled for release, the Developer Pack and the Chronicles Packs.

Coming Soon: Players who share computers can also share their Steam games

September 11, 2013 – Steam Family Sharing, a new service feature that allows close friends and family members to share their libraries of Steam games, is coming to Steam, a leading platform for the delivery and management of PC, Mac, and Linux games and software. The feature will become available next week, in limited beta on Steam.

Steam Family Sharing is designed for close friends and family members to play one another's Steam games while each earning their own Steam achievements and storing their own saves and application data to the Steam cloud. It's all enabled by authorizing a shared computer.

“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.”

Once a device is authorized, the lender's library of Steam games becomes available for others on the machine to access, download, and play. Though simultaneous usage of an account’s library is not allowed, the lender may always access and play his games at any time. If he decides to start playing when a friend is borrowing one of his games, the friend will be given a few minutes to either purchase the game or quit playing.

For more information about Steam Family Sharing and the beta program, please visit store.steampowered.com/sharing.
