Take Part in Steam Beta Updates

If you like to live on the edge and try out new updates to your favourite Steam games before they are released then you might like this tip.

If you choose to proceed then you do so at your own risk!

You can opt yourself in to take part in the beta releases of particular games when offered by doing the following:

  • Click on the “Steam” menu in Steam,
  • Click on “Settings”,
  • Under the “Account” tab click the “Change” button under the “Beta participation” section.
Steam - Beta Participation Screen
Steam – Beta Participation Screen

In the new window you can select which beta releases in which you want to take part and then click “OK”. You’ll be prompted to restart Steam after which your selection will be locked in. After that, it’s a matter of waiting!

One thing to note, using beta releases of games could have some consequences such as crashing, abnormalities in gameplay and even corruption of your saved games.
