OnLive takes another stab at cloud-based gaming with Cloudlift streaming service

Posted on March 5, 2014 AT 03:37pm

Cloud-gaming platform OnLive is relaunching its service with a new initiative called Cloudlift, the company revealed today.

Designed to work with existing digital distribution services commonly used by gamers, such as Steam or Origin, Cloudlift serves as a means to stream titles across several different devices that normally would not be able to support something like, say, Saints Row IV. Owned titles can be streamed across multiple PCs, be they Mac or Windows, Android devices, and televisions regardless of geographical location and without the need to re-download something.

Cloudlift’s currently only supports a library consisting only of 20 titles, including the Batman: Arkham series, Saints Row IV, Strike Suit Zero, Darksiders II, and Red Faction: Armageddon, but OnLive assures that the service will continue to expand. And by tying the service into existing platforms, OnLive believes they’ll be able to “on-board games more quickly” because no modifications will be necessary.

The company also announced OnLiveGO, a streaming service for MMOs aimed at removing the wait time that comes with downloading a new game.

CloudLift is currently in open beta with a 7-day free trial and then a $14.99 a month subscription fee.
