Steam Will Soon Let You Play Local Multiplayer Games Online With ‘Remote Play Together’
Valve announced the feature, called Remote Play Together to the Steam that will let players enjoy local multiplayer games into online experiences. Undoubtedly, this is one of the biggest features that arrived at Steam.
Using the Remote Play Together you can enjoy a friend’s game even if you don’t own it yourself. It let the players enjoy a traditional local couch gaming experience.
Remote Play works by one player inviting a friend to join their local multiplayer game via the Steam Overlay. If their pal accepts the invitation, the game is run through the host’s computer and they begin playing together. The host player handles all the processing, while their friends hook in with their connection, controllers, and microphone. The game doesn’t need to already exist in the friend’s Steam library.
An email has been sent out to developers and shared on Unity’s forum, informed game creators that any games featuring local co-op, split-screen, or multiplayer mechanics will be automatically supported when the feature goes live in Steam Beta on October 21.
This feature is designed to add value to multiplayer games which do not already have native online capabilities,” reads the email. “It will soon be enjoyed among friends online using the Remote Play Together Beta, enabling fans to introduce your local multiplayer game to new audiences. Note that multiplayer games which are not explicitly designed for local play are still best enjoyed using the game’s built-in online system.
Up to four players will be able to game with each other with Remote Play Together. Valve says it “renders 60 frames per second at a resolution of 1080p,” too, if your internet is good enough.
