Local multiplayer becomes online multiplayer!

It looks like Steam is about to make some big changes to local multiplayer games which will allow them to be played online with friends.

Announced via a Twitter post from Hidden in Plain Sight developer Adam Spragg, an email was sent from Steam to developers announcing the change that will allow players to utilise online co-op for local co-op games.

The new “Remote Play Together” feature will supposedly allow gamers to play with one another as if they were “side by side”, meaning that many titles will gain a new lease of life to be played with consumers who may not have friends with similar interests locally.

It’s fantastic news, so lets hope that we see an official Steam announcement soon!
