Steam Family Share or Game Share has a weird reputation. Primarily because it feels like a blatant cheat. But it’s not – it is a system that allows family and friends to not go broke and enjoy the same game. Here’s the Game Share status of Hogwarts Legacy Deluxe Edition, explained.

How will the Hogwarts Legacy Deluxe Edition Game Share work?

Now to get this clear to you, Steam Game Share is a simple concept.

  1. When the host decides to share his games from the library, he can do so. To do it the borrower must have a steam account. The host can then send the game to them.
  2. But the borrower must fill out an authentication process that will confirm the consent of the host in this activity.

The steam family share then will let the borrower play the game from their account. It will save the progress separately, but the achievements will not be shared. As in, the borrower will not gain the Steam Achievements that the Host user achieved.

Hogwarts Legacy Deluxe Edition Game Share option available or not?

Now with all that, you may be confused if the Steam Family Sharing will work for Hogwarts Legacy Deluxe Edition. Here’s the thing.

It will work.

  • Hogwarts Legacy Deluxe Edition can be Steam Game Shared with a family or friend. As well can the DLC content be shared?
  • But here’s a catch – the host can only give their version of the game (with all is DLC) as something to share. The DLC Content in itself cannot be sent separately.

Can the DLC be shared if the family member has the base game?

From above, it implies that the Host will not be able to share their DLC content for Hogwarts Legacy with any user who already has the base game. The DLC content is not shareable.

But if the friend or family does not own a copy of the base game, then the host can share their own copy. In this sharing, the entirety of whatever the host has bought will be shared. If the host has Hogwarts Legacy Deluxe Edition with all DLC contents downloaded, then that is how it shall be shared.

Are all games Steam Game Shareable?

It is notable that the Hogwarts Legacy Deluxe Edition Family Share option is confirmed by WB Games Support.

Now another plus is that the Steam Game Share will work even for the early-access editions. Those who have pre-purchased the game will be eligible to share it with their family members.

  • All games are not given for such benevolent causes. With the hype of Harry Potter fans and the audience backing up the franchise, it is hoped to sustain itself well.


Given its age rating and family-oriented audience, the game will do well with this option. Despite a raging bust of controversies that surround Hogwarts Legacy and the entire transphobia, and homophobia cases with the author of the Harry Potter franchise.

The controversies aside, we hope that the game lives up to its hype.
