NVIDIA has opened up beta access to their GeForce Experience updated software which brings a slew of new features to users fingertips allowing them to become more social and bring back old-school cooperative gameplay elements via their GameStream Co-op system.

What GameStream Co-op does, according to NVIDIA, is allows players to stream their game “over the Internet to a friend and play together cooperatively – just as if your friend was sitting in the chair next to you.” They go on to state, “Using Gamestream Co-op, you can now get help on a tough level, play in co-op mode, or just do a real-time 1:1 live stream with your friend. It’s fast, fun, and a whole new way to enjoy PC games.”

The GameStream Co-op does come with its own set of system requirements which are:
