Valve has been developing a new feature titled Remote Play Together, and it will release the feature on the Steam platform at some point in October. Remote Play Together is a feature that will allow Steam users to play multiplayer games on local-only settings with other users in different locations.
The new multiplayer capabilities that will come to Steam, operate by making a game believe that all of the users are in the same room. This allows users to remote play local-only multiplayer games. Valve has also indicated that Remote Play Together will be able to support up to four different users in a single game, and gameplay relies on each user having a steady connection.
The new multiplayer features could offer a more socially oriented gaming experience which could be popular among users of the Steam platform.
