My.Games launches cloud gaming service

My.Games Cloud is currently in beta in Russia, and will feature games from Ubisoft and Riot Games

My.Games, the games division of Russian internet company Mail.ru, has announced the launch of its cloud gaming service, My.Games Cloud.

Currently in beta, it'll feature games from Ubisoft, Riot Games, and Funcom, with more partners expected to be announced later down the line.

The service is currently only available in Russia, with My.Games pointing out that "the most optimal experience will only be available to players within a radius of 1500-2000 km from the My.Games Cloud server centers, located in Moscow and St. Petersburg." For the time being, it's also only available on Windows.

In 2021, the service will expand to more territories and platforms, including Mac OS, Android, iOS, social network VK.com, and smart TVs.

My.Games added that the service will ultimately be integrated into the My.Games Store, with subscribers "gaining access to the complete games library as well as titles from other gaming stores."

In terms of pricing, the company hasn't detailed its plans, but promised it to be an "affordable platform."

My.Games Cloud's free plan won't have any restrictions in terms of session lengths, while paid subscriptions will give the ability to play in 4K resolution at up to 120 frames-per-second.

My.Games CEO Vasily Maguryan commented: "We see great potential in cloud gaming technology, especially in a country like Russia, where its well-developed internet infrastructure provides a high-quality gaming experience at an affordable price. We are happy to welcome international publishers partners, for whom the launch of such a service can provide the opportunity to reach a new audience."

My.Games is the latest company to have announced its cloud gaming service, as more and more have emerged this year. Amazon announced its own platform, Luna, back in September.
