Music Is Coming To Steam

Illustration for article titled Music Is Coming To Steam

Valve's in the process of testing something called Steam Music. Before you freak out and worry that Valve's getting into the music business, relax: this isn't a Spotify competitor. It's just a way to integrate your existing music collection with Steam.

It's a pretty simple idea. You tell Steam which directory your music is in, and Steam can then play it all while you're gaming, including album art.

This might sound a bit naff for most games, but for more ponderous experiences - I'm looking at you, Civ & Total War - the ability to play my own music instead of listening to the same score for the 1,455,346st time, will be blessed relief
