War Thunder, the Award-Winning MMO, Flies Onto OnLive CloudLift

Free-to-Play MMO Expands Value and Flexibility of OnLive's New Cloud Offering

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/07/14 -- OnLive, the cloud gaming leader, today announced the launch of Gaijin Entertainment's award-winning MMO War Thunder on the OnLive® Game Service. The free-to-play game will be added to OnLive's recently-launched CloudLift™ subscription, which empowers gamers to play PC games they already own, anywhere via the cloud on a wide range of connected devices, instantly.

By 'lifting' War Thunder to the cloud, new and existing players of the game will be able to play their game wherever they choose, without needing to re-download the full game client. All progress and purchases are synced in the cloud so the player can move between devices seamlessly.

Playing War Thunder through CloudLift also massively lowers the recommended PC or Mac specification while still delivering smooth 720p60 graphics and NVIDIA enhanced effects. The game can even be played on an Android™ tablet using a Bluetooth controller, making the game mobile for the first time.

CloudLift is available to try for free for 7 days, allowing for an instant trial of War Thunder as well. Simply download the OnLive client for PC or Mac from games.onlive.com/download, or the OnLive Android app from the Google Play store, and check out this amazing game in all its graphical glory.

"We're thrilled to partner with the talented team at Gaijin and provide the convenience of instant access to all the intense, richly detailed action of War Thunder to their users," said Mark Jung, Executive Chairman. "By expanding the CloudLift subscription to include a free-to-play MMO such as this one, we can now offer content in the subscription for our players to access right away, anywhere on a wide range of devices, even before they own any of the traditional download games."

Anton Yudintsev, CEO of Gaijin Entertainment, added: "OnLive is making it possible for our millions of War Thunder fans to jump into combat quickly, wherever they are and on whatever device they're carrying. We're looking forward to engaging our current players more deeply and more often, while bringing new users into our game."

War Thunder is the first free-to-play game added to the OnLive Game Service, expanding the possibilities for cloud gaming and providing MMO players a new way to interact with their favorite games wherever they are. Named Best Simulation of Gamescom 2013, Gaijin Entertainment's award-winning MMO War Thunder engages gamers in realistic World War II combat with over 6 million other users across the globe. With an OnLive CloudLift subscription, gamers will now be able to rain destruction from the sky from a wide range of devices, anywhere, by simply signing in over the Internet -- no game download required.

The OnLive CloudLift subscription links players' game libraries with their OnLive account, giving players the freedom to play their games at home on their local rig, as well as on Android devices, Macs or lightweight laptops on the go, TVs with the OnLive Game System or the VIZIO® Co-Star, and on the LG Google TV, all platforms on which high-end games may not normally be supported. CloudLift works with supported games purchased from any digital download retailer, and now with the addition of War Thunder, includes a free-to-play game, bringing even more value to the subscription, priced at just $7.95/month, with a free 7-day trial available.

The number of OnLive CloudLift-compatible games and devices continues to grow. Watch games.onlive.com, www.onlive.co.uk and the OnLive Game Service Market for details.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
