You can also play with a family member through Steam family sharing if they don't own the game, and it's also easy to do; just follow the steps below, and you will be golden. 

To start, we recommend only doing this only with a close friend or a family member; you will also need to be connected via lan or a program like hamachi for this to work, and you will also both need Steam Guard turned on.
