New GeForce Experience Introduces New Ways to Share, Including GameStream Co-Op

Alongside the launch of the GeForce GTX 950, NVIDIA is rolling out a new GeForce Experience Beta that completely changes its share features. Say goodbye to ShadowPlay and say hello to Share. Accessible via Alt+Z by default, the new in-game Share overlay will look familiar to any SHIELD user. It contains four key options: Instant Replay, Record, Stream, and Broadcast. Replay, Record, and Broadcast all behave relatively the same as before, but now includes the ability to upload directly to YouTube at up to 4k60 resolution without having to leave your game. You can even trim your videos before uploading directly within the overlay.

 

 

 

But the real star is that Stream option. Clicking on the Stream option accesses the new GameStream Co-Op feature, allowing users to invite a friend to join their game by sending an email invite or copying/pasting an invite URL. Your friend doesn't have to download Steam or the game; he or she simply has to use the Chrome web browser to launch the link. Your friend can then watch you play, take over the controls, or even join you if the game supports multi-controller play; all with integrated voice chat.

Yes, you read that correctly - NVIDIA just solved an issue that many developers have struggled with over the years. NVIDIA essentially enabled online co-op play for any game with local co-op. And it only requires one user to own the game! I was fortunate enough to see the feature used in person and it's pretty amazing. While performance will obviously depend on the Internet connection of you and your friend, what I witnessed was a perfect, latency-free 1:1 stream of the game.

In order to use GameStream Co-Op, the Host PC must be equipped with at least a GTX 650, Intel i3-2100 3.1GHz, and 4GB RAM, with a recommended upstream bandwidth of 7Mbps. The host must also be running the game in fullscreen mode, with support for DX9 games and higher. The Guest PC has no GPU requirement, and simply a minimum of an Intel i3-2100 3.1GHz and 4GB RAM, with a recommended downstream bandwidth of 7Mbps.

NVIDIA GameStream Co-Op has the potential to be a major game-changer, no pun intended.
