Valve has turned its attention towards its another major title. Portal 2 new updates will allow players to play a cooperative game in a new style. According to the blog post, one player can play on a controller while the other can play with a mouse and keyboard at the same time. Furthermore, local coop support from the community coop map que is also available.
Apart from this, a new feature called Remote Play Together is also introduced. This will allow players to play split-screen Portal 2 with a remote Player 2, who does not own the game. Moreover, the update will fix bugs like not having enough footer buttons, controller issues, and Xinput related issues.
Here is full patch notes from Valve Blog Post.
