Valve patented a system for instantly launching games at boot time

Science, technology and technology news

The video game company Valve has patented a system thanks to which users will be able to play games that have not yet been downloaded until the end. Most likely, the company is going to implement it in its digital distribution service Steam.

The new system will work independently and will not require any action from the developers. Possibility of “instant” launch of games is indicated, as well as optimization of loading in order to load the necessary files in advance to reduce delays.

The early access system for not fully downloaded games is not a new idea. The digital distribution service Ubisoft Connect also offers to play games that are still downloadable, but there the developer himself determines which part of the game can be launched initially.
