Valve celebrates the release of the full-fledged version of Steam Remote Play Together. The service has left the beta version and on this occasion, many cooperative games that we will launch through it have been overestimated.
Just a month ago, Valve representatives announced the launch of testing of the cooperative system of playing in the cloud, and now the site has the first stable version. Thanks to Steam Remote Play Together, platform users can play titles offering local multiplayer via the internet. In the testing phase, the platform operated on computers with Windows, Linux and macOS systems, and in the final version, the scope of its operation was expanded to include mobile devices with Android and iOS.
To play in sofa mode over the network, players need only one copy of the game to be played on the host device. Other participants of the game connect to the server via the Internet, and Steam only sends the game image, reads the buttons activated by each player and transmits this data to the host. This means that only the person running the game must meet the minimum requirements set by the title. The rest must only have access to fast internet and Steam applications for computers or mobile devices.
To encourage users to use the new feature, Valve has organized a large cooperative sale that runs until November 25. We’ll buy titles like Enter the Gungeon, Guacamelee! 2 at a promotional price Guacamelee! 2 Guacamelee! 2 or Spelunky Unfortunately, Cuphead advertising Steam Remote Play Together has not seen a reduction.
