Steam Will Soon Let You Play Local Co-Op Games Remotely

What few of those exist, in any case.

Let’s take a break from talking about how awful Blizzard is to talk about a good thing coming to everyone’s favorite terrible digital retailer of video games: Steam. While Steam has certainly taken quite a beating by Epic Games due to the whole “buying exclusive rights to games” thing, Steam is still going strong thanks to a solid history as a dependable retailer and the fact that they are just absolutely loaded with features that the Epic Game Store frankly can’t hope to match.

And another one is about to be added to that long and storied list: the ability to play local co-op games remotely.

Dubbed “Remote Play Together”, this new feature hasn’t officially been announced by Valve, but it has been leaked by developers who have been working with it after it was unveiled on the Steamworks website, which isn’t available to the general public. However, it will enter open beta for the public, apparently, on October 21, which is right around the corner.

That said, there’s not that much more to say about it, other then the fact it’s going to be really nice. Local co-op games are great, and nothing replaces the feeling of being in the same room as a friend, but it was always a shame when a local co-op game didn’t have any online features so distant friends could connect. I’m glad that’s being remedied.

Now if only Nintendo could implement something like that…
