From PC Mag: Some PC games include a local multiplayer option for groups of people who want to play together in the same location. But Steam is unlocking the ability to play such games without needing everyone to be in the same place.
As PC Gamer reports, Valve is launching a new feature for Steam games called Remote Play Together. What Remote Play Together does is add online support for local multiplayer games, meaning you can play with friends even if you can't all meet up in the same location and sit in front of the same TV.
The new feature was announced on the developer-only Steamworks website, but later confirmed in the tweet you see above by Alden Kroll, who works on Steam at Valve.
