Take local multiplayer online with Steam's newest feature

Steam will now let you play your favourite local multiplayer game with a friend over the internet thanks to the addition of the new 'Remote Play Together' functionality.

It'll give a whole new life to split screen gaming and doesn't require everyone to have access to the title you want to play. The host player can allow their friends to connect to their local game and play it over the internet in any existing split-screen mode. Steam say that all split screen and local co-op games will be compatible with the new functionality.

Remote Play Together will be added to beta versions of the Steam client from 21st October and will be released to everyone at an unspecified date in the future.
