Steam Remote Play Together, which emulates all the fun of couch co-op while letting you have the couch all to yourself, is officially out of beta as of today and to celebrate, Steam is having a sale on co-op games.
You can shop the co-op games sale by following the link here. Some of the best deals include 75% off Overcooked and Goat Simulator, 60% off Lovers In A Dangerous Spacetime, and 80% off Guacamelee! and Crypt of the Necrodancer.
The way Remote Play Together works is by letting you invite your Steam Friends to join you in local co-op, local multiplayer, and even shared/split screen games online. Only the host needs to own and install the game.
Usually, up to four players can join your Remote Play Together game, but if you and your friends have a speedy enough internet connection, you can get even more players to join in on the fun.
Here’s how you can get playing with your friends, even if they can’t make their way to your couch:
- Launch any of your local multiplayer games.
- Invite your friends by going to your Friends list in the Steam Overlay and selecting “Remote Play Together”
- Wait for them to accept and you’re all in!
By using Remote Play Together, you and your friends will steam video, audio, and voice chat between players while all using your own controllers. You can even choose to share mouse and keyboard control based on how much you trust your friends.
All your voice chat and game volume options will stay in one handy menu during the game, meaning you won’t have to spend hours searching for them.
