License for a family account?

Hi there, is it possible to share the AoE II DE edition within family members to play local matches against each other? E.g. I have an account with 3 additional family members (wife, 2 kids). Do we need 1 license for all or do we need 4 licenses?

So, sadly, to the game run simmultaneously on different machines that means that each machine will be running its own individual copy of the game.

The best you can get with a family share (at least on steam) is to have an account library accessible by other accounts, and therefore on other machines, with this access always having to be asynchronous between the different library accessants.



Thanks for your reply! Really, that is disappointing …

I would love to play with my wife but I can’t afford a 2nd copy at the moment
