OnLive to Expand Gaming Service in Europe
Mountain View, California — August 28th, 2014 — OnLive, the leader in cloud gaming, today confirmed the OnLive® Game Service will be made available in Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Norway, The Netherlands, and Ireland in Q4 2014.
Currently the OnLive Game Service is commercially available in the USA, Canada and UK. Since launching the new client Beta on March 5 th for PC, Mac, Android tablets, consoles and smartphones, the company has been scaling up infrastructure and can now extend the OnLive Game Service into more countries, enabling full account sign-ups and access to OnLive’s CloudLift™ and PlayPack™ subscriptions.
“Since day one we’ve seen a sizeable chunk of traffic from these regions because of their great connectivity and bias towards our client platforms,” said Bruce Grove, OnLive’s General Manager. “That interest has continued to grow, and we’re close to completing the network operations necessary to deliver full services in these regions. Expect more announcements in the very near future.”
The OnLive subscription packages, which now feature over 300 console-quality action-adventure, FPS, strategy, simulation, MMO, racing and sports titles, will be charged in Euros and PayPal has been added as an additional service-wide payment method.
Since its launch in 2010, OnLive has powered premium-quality gaming via the cloud on nearly any Mac or PC computer and a wide range of thin client devices, including lightweight laptops, tablets, smart phones and TVs—platforms that would normally lack the processing power and memory to run graphics intensive games and other applications. Users can enjoy the freedom and convenience of the OnLive Game Service, playing their games seamlessly across connected devices wherever they are.
