A new cloud gaming service, Playkey, launched earlier this week 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.
Playkey delivers top quality video streaming through powerful gaming servers, allowing gamers 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 your tastes. There are over 20 triple-A titles currently available and the Playkey site will be updated each month.
Playkey utilises cloud gaming technology similar to services such as Gaikai. Once registered you receive access to a handful of free-to-download games and can purchase the latest chart-topping games at retail price.

Subscriptions start 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 more information can be found on the Playkey website.
