The new Portal 2 update was released on Steam alongside the new Steam sale and the launch of the Remote Play Together feature. The biggest addition in the new Portal 2 update is that you can now play local co-op with one player using a controller and the other a mouse and keyboard combo, making it easier than ever to enjoy some Portal 2 local co-op.

With the release of Remote Play Together, it is also now possible to play Portal 2 in split-screen co-op with someone over the internet who doesn’t even own the game. Check out the details of the new Portal 2 update from Valve below.
