Nvidia is bringing its own version of the PlayStation 4’s ‘Share Play’ feature to PC.

Share Play on PS4 allows players to utilize multiplayer in a game over the internet with friends who do not even own the game themselves by virtually handing them a controller. Nvidia stated that the next version of their GeForce Experience program will include a similar feature called GameStream Co-Op.

GameStream Co-Op will simulate local co-op by allowing a friend you invite to play alongside you in multiplayer and try the game out for themselves.

GameStream will be available in the early-access beta launch of GeForce Experience in September. Other additions to this update include a new in-game overlay, improved tools for broadcasting, and an easy way to record gameplay.

Certain Nvidia GPUs are necessary to run the GameStream function and a full list of requirements for the host and the guest PCs are listed below.
