PlaykeyPlaykey has just been launched in the UK in April 2016 (beta). Playkey caters for gamers who enjoy playing hardcore MMO and top-rated games, but have low-end PCs and laptops.

With the Playkey cloud gaming service, any gamer can instantly launch the latest, top-rated blockbusters such as GTA V, Witcher 3 or Fallout 4, even if their hardware is old and slow.

The Playkey cloud gaming service uses video streaming technology similar to the Onlive and Gaikai services. There difference is that Playkey allows you to play the latest, top-rated games shortly after the official release. It also allows you to play any games you might already own (if they are available on Playkey). There are over 20 top-rated games in the Playkey catalogue, including Rise of the Tomb Raider, GTA V, Fallout 4, Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate, The Witcher 3, Far Cry 4, MMOs by Wargaming, Might & Magic Heroes VII, The Crew, and others. Playkey collaborates directly with major game publishers such as Ubisoft, Codemasters, Capcom, and Sega, as well as local official distributors. Playkey updates its catalogue regularly on a monthly basis.

Playkey launches all games on a network of powerful gaming servers. That’s why the user’s PC configuration is irrelevant. The end user receives a high quality video stream and controls the game in real-time. Even a 5 Mbps Internet connection will be enough for a good gaming experience.

Playkey’s infrastructure is mostly based in Europe. The service is powered by a proprietary video encoding and streaming technology which guarantees top notch graphics and high processing speed. Playkey supports 1080p Full HD and 720p HD Ready resolutions. The Playkey desktop client is available for Windows and MacOS. Please note that the service may not work properly if accessed outside of the UK.

Playkey offers its customers a subscription-based sales model. A subscription grants full access to the service and allows the user to buy the latest top-rated games or launch previously-owned games (if they are available on Playkey). Playkey subscription plans start from £15 for 1 month of access. A demo period is available for free.
