Steam will feature a tool that allows local multiplayer via streaming “if both computers are in the same area or room”.

The tool called Remote Play Together gives players a shared experience via the internet.

The idea is that two or more people who can play a game always need to share the same computer.

Thus, a PC will host the match and other players will share this game via the internet.

In other words, as a local multiplayer, it will not be necessary for all participants to have the title to play together.

Non-host users will control their characters via streaming.

That is, the image will be sent to the PC, and the player gives the command, which will be transmitted via the internet to the host computer, executing the movement on the screen.

The technology should be implemented as a test from October 21.

According to Kroll, no changes in development will be necessary, since all games with local multiplayer can now be compatible with the tool.

When Valve says that local multiplayer requires people to be in the same environment, it does not mean that there will be geographic mapping.

It is about sharing the same network.

Valve said that games with local multiplayer with versus, cooperative, or even split-screen, will be able to use the feature.
