Steam will introduce a new feature — Remote Play Together — which will let local multiplayer game be playable online (via Eurogamer).
Remote Play Together will be added to games that have local multiplayer, co-op, and split-screen mechanics, as stated in an email circulated to developers this week. The feature will be trialled in Steam Beta, firstly, and all a host player needs to do is send a manual invite up to four friends through the Steam Overlay.
Thought it will all depend on each other’s internet speed, Remote Play Together ‘requires a connection between 10 to 30 Mbps for a successful low-latency session’, and with fast connections there is the possibility of inviting more than three players to the game.
The collection of games that will enjoy the new feature was not stated, but we’ll know more in the coming week. Remote Play Together will launch in Steam Beta on October 21 for all users of the client.
