Earlier this month a leaked email from Valve revealed their plans to introduce Remote Play Together for Steam, allowing players to enjoy local multiplayer games over the internet, and now we've got the official announcement from Valve on the feature.
Remote Play Together is now in beta, and lets you invite friends together for local co-op, multiplayer, and split-screen gaming over the internet, with only the host needing to own the game. Up to four players can get involved, and additional players join via an invite using Steam Remote Play's streaming system.
The controllers of invited players will act as if they're plugged directly into the host's computer, and all voice chat and game volume options are available in one place as well. Only the game is displayed to your friends too, nothing else, and you can share and limit access to the keyboard and mouse.
"During the beta we'll be improving network stability and compatibility across a variety of hardware," Valve adds.
