OnLive Launches CloudLift: Play Steam Titles on Your Tablet, Mac and More
Saints Row IV, Batman: Arkham Origins and Type:RIder currently supported.
If it seemed like OnLive was dead, then the recent launch of CloudLift should eliminate evidence to the same. The new cloud gaming service is offering consumers the ability to play any PC game they’ve downloaded from digital stores like Steam on pretty much any device.
This means you can play the supported games – which include Saints Row IV, Batman: Arkham Origins and Type:Rider – on your tablet, Mac, ultrabook, Google TV, you name it without any problems. You’ll need to subscribe at $15/£9.99 per month and then sync said PC games to your OnLive account but from there, it’s smooth sailing. You can even play on one device and continue where you left off on another, thanks to Cloud saves.
OnLive will also begin selling download codes for different games, which also grant a 7 day trial for CloudLift. It’ll be interesting to see where it goes but if the game catalog expands, it could be a pretty significant step forward. Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.
