Steam Trading is now officially available to all Steam users via Team Fortress 2, Spiral Knights and Portal 2.
Tuesday Valve Software officially pulled Steam Trading of out beta and is now offering the service to all Steam users via Team Fortress 2, Spiral Knights and Portal 2. Now everyone can shower each other with exchangeable in-game items and game gifts.
"The addition of Steam Trading is the latest example of how Steam continues to evolve with new features and functions developed based upon feedback," said Jason Holtman, director of business development. "We look forward to seeing how gamers and developers have fun and move this functionality forward."
The Steam Trading beta began with Team Fortress 2 items and game gifts last month. According to Valve, over 1 million items and game gifts were traded during the four-week beta. However, now that the trading service is open to everyone, users will now see an item inventory in their Steam Community profile which will be viewable by everyone in the community.
"We’re working with other developers to incorporate Trading and Inventories into their games, so keep an eye out for future announcements in the coming months," Valve reports, adding that support for Steam Trading now resides within the Steamworks SDK
