Train2Game News Playkey Cloud Gaming

Gaming as we know it is about to change, as an exciting and new cloud gaming service, Playkey, has launched in the UK.
Turning gaming on its head, Playkey provides PC gamers with the technology they need to play the blockbuster titles they adore, but with the hardware they can all afford.

How? Well, Playkey delivers top quality video streaming through powerful gaming servers, allowing millions of PC owners across the UK to play the best-selling games on virtually any PC, Mac or laptop.

Whether you choose to explore the many kingdoms and cities as the witcher Geralt in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, or play as the Sole Survivor in Fallout 4, there is a game to suit the tastes of both MMO and hard-core gamers. With over 20 triple-A titles currently available and the site being updated each month, Playkey subscribers will be spoilt for choice.

Playkey is at the forefront of cloud gaming technology, utilising technology almost similar to services such as Gaikai. It provides players with digital download model and a cloud PC rent to suit their gaming needs and once registered you receive access to a handful of free-to-download games and can purchase the latest chart-topping games at retail price.

With subscriptions starting from £0.90 for 1 hour and £9 for 1 month of access, Playkey is the only service which offers a solution to launch games straight after their official PC-release. Furthermore, games previously owned can also be launched on Playkey, if the game is already available on the service.

Egor Gurjev, CEO at Playkey, said: “We’re incredibly excited to be launching Playkey in the UK and our goal is to bring high-quality gaming to everyone, not just those with high-specification PCs. The gaming industry is constantly evolving and growing. We want to provide gaming fans the games they love, without the worry of their technology letting them down.”

A launch demo period is currently available for free and all games are available “as is” with all of their specific features, including multiplayer, social features and achievements.

Playkey is available for Windows and MacOS and for more information please visit www.playkey.net

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.
