Starting soon, Steam will begin to roll out a brand new feature called ‘Remote Play together’. Remote Play Together will allow Steam users to play any local multiplayer games online automatically with friends at another location.
According to Steamworks, a news netwok only developers have access to, “Remote Play Together will allow two or more players to enjoy local multiplayer games over the internet, together. All local multiplayer, local co-op and split-screen games will be automatically included in the Remote Play Together beta“.
The feature which was announced today on Steamworks, should be available on October 21st in beta form.
This feature should be useful for games such as Towerfall and Castle Crashers. This feature could also make online development easier and cheaper for devlovers, if done right.
