Steam Remote Play Together Launches Today Co-Op Online
Steam Remote Play Together, a feature that allows friends to play local multiplayer games online, was launched today after a month-long beta test. Full launch extends local multiplayer mode via the Steam Link app to iOS and Android devices. Steam Remote Play Together, ideal for couch co-op games like Enter the Gungeon, Cuphead or Wilmot’s Warehouse, can be played with up to four players. Only the host must own the game as well.
Just 1 person needs to have one of the games that work with the Steam Remote Play Together system. Once they start the game up on their own computer, they’ll send an invite to friends in remote places. Those players will be able to join the game and play at the same time, via the internet.
The Steam Remote Play Together event page has a whole load of games that work with the new system. Per Steam, you can “play your couch co-op games with friends over the internet, together!”
For those needing suggestions on what games work best with Remote Play Together, Valve kicked off a streaming event at noon, running to 8 p.m. EST. There is also a sales event featuring Steam’s usual deep discounts applied to many local multiplayer-friendly titles and franchises.
The function is initiated with the Remote Play Together icon within the host’s associates’ checklist. Simply click on on it to ask them. The game ought to behave on the host’s gadget as if all of the invited gamers had a controller plugged into it. The different gamers will solely have the ability to see the game, not the host’s desktop or overlays.
