Steam’s Remote Play Together Beta is now live, so if you’re interested in playing local co-op and multiplayer with friends, now’s your chance.
You’ll need to have joined Steam’s Beta and have the latest build installed before you begin, but only one of you needs to own a game to start using the new feature, while the others just connect through Steam Remote Play. Utilising Remote Play Together, friends’ controllers will then act as though they’re plugged into your computer.
“To keep things simple, only the game is displayed to your Friends, never your desktop or other Top Secret stuff”, Steam assured users in a new blog post. “You can share — or limit access to — the keyboard and mouse. It’s your choice.”
Steam will be overseeing the Beta to improve network stability and compatibility “across a variety of hardware” and are keen to get as much feedback as possible on how it’s working out, so for more information on how to get involved and join the Remote Play Together Beta, clicka-the-linka.
