Steam enables local co-op support over the internet

Steam Remote Play Together now enables you to play your favorite game with your friends over the internet. Yes, you can play your games with your friends on the same couch.

Playing a game with your friends on the same couch has never been this easy and seamless before. Sadly co-op was a big part of gaming culture back in the XBOX era. As our living room TVs have gotten bigger the developer support for local co-op multiplayer has also gone extinct.

Remote play

Steam wishes to remedy the problem by easing your fun time with your friends. With Steam, you can now play your games in local co-op over the internet. Users are claiming that it really works well in co-op multiplayer games. The ping is especially tolerable and not immersion-breaking at all.

In the official steam page, it says that

Instantly share your Steam local multi-player games with friends over the internet, for free.

Using Remote Play Together, one player owns and runs the game, then up to four players — or even more with fast connections — can quickly join in the fun.

It will be a great addition to our living room when friends and family will want to join in a gameplay session. Their main motto for this feature is you can even remote play
Together + Anywhere
. Early users are claiming consistent performance. It should be great for some Oldschool CO-op fun.
