Facebook entered the cloud gaming platform market by announcing Facebook Gaming in October last year. The new service offers the option to play many games with cloud streaming. The service originally launched as a closed beta and was only available in certain US regions.
A published blog post states that the free cloud gaming platform currently covers 98 percent of the US series population, and the social media giant is on track to reach 100 percent by expanding its cloud computing infrastructure. The company adds that distribution has also reached Canada and Mexico, and will expand to Western and Central Europe early next year.
Facebook has also partnered with French game publisher Ubisoft to drive interest in its cloud gaming service. Thus, Ubisoft’s mobile games will now come to the cloud streaming platform. In addition, Ubisoft games on the service include Assassin’s Creed Rebellion, Hungry Shark Evolution and Hungry Dragon. The publisher’s other titles, Mighty Quest and Trials Frontier, will be available in the coming months.
Facebook’s cloud gaming service already has more than 25 games, after recently adding Roller Coaster Tycoon Touch from Atari, Lego Legacy Heroes Unboxed from Gameloft, Dragon Mania Legends, and State of Survival from FunPlus. These cloud-listed games can be accessed via the Facebook app on Android or the recently redesigned Facebook Gaming Web Portal.
