Steam makes it easy for you to invite friends for co-op or multiplayer titles. With Remote Play Together, you can do it with a simple click on a link. It doesn’t matter whether your fellow player is on a cell phone, tablet or PC – your friend needs it not even a steam account.
Co-op via Steam: Here’s how!
Just follow our little guide and you can start playing together in no time:
- First, check if your desired game supports Remote Play Together – you can find out on the title’s store page.
- Start the game and open the Steam overlay with the key combination Shift and Tab.
- In your friends list you will find the button with the inscription
Invite everyone to play. Click on it.
- In the new window you can create and copy invite links.
- If your fellow players have downloaded the Steam Link app on their devices, all they need is your link.
- In the last step, you can unlock input devices for your co-op partners – after that you can start playing straight away!
Is there anything else to consider? Only one of you needs to own the game – so it doesn’t need another Steam account. Whether your partners want to get involved on the PC, mobile phone or tablet is irrelevant.
Is there a player limit? With how many players you can use Remote Play Together depends on the game on the one hand, but also on your internet connection: In theory, more than four players can play together, but only particularly strong lines can do that.
Unofficial Support: With RemotePlayWhatever you can also enable Remote Play Together for Steam games that don’t officially support the feature. However, when using it, keep in mind that the work is not approved by Valve or the game developers and problems can arise.
