TAIPEI, May 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ – Entering the 4G LTE era of high bandwidth and high-speed mobile internet, Ubitus has collaborated with Chunghwa Telecom to launch GameNow-Taiwan cloud gaming service. Players will be able to play many classic games on their mobile phones and tablets. Those who sign up for the 4G LTE plan with Chunghwa Telecom will now have the privilege of becoming the first batch of users to enjoy this, which shall accelerate the marking of a new chapter in the Taiwanese cloud gaming market.
Yesterday on 29th May 2014, Chunghwa Telecom hosted a press conference to officially announce the launching of its 4G LTE services, which shall include the best bandwidth and frequency advantages. By boosting the speed and quality of mobile internet at one go, it will be possible to provide consumers with better quality and value-added services, including HD video content, music, GPS, and high-quality cloud-enabled games. Ubitus and Chunghwa Telecom jointly launched GameNow-Taiwan cloud gaming service, which is one of the most attractive value-added services. The surfing speed on the 4G LTE mobile broadband is 4-7X that of 3G. Users shall be able to enjoy high-quality cloud gaming, with gameplay that is smooth and uninterrupted.
Through GameNow-Taiwan cloud gaming platform, players can enjoy many gaming classics on their mobile phones or tablets, such as games that require the player to exercise their thinking capabilities to progress in the game (Ethan: Meteor Hunter), where the player controls a mouse with the powers to freeze time and control objects from a distance to progress in the game. There are also high adrenalin motor-racing games such as Superstars V8 Next Challenge, SBK X – Superbike World Championship, WRC 4 — FIA World Rally Championship, and others. Besides that, there are strategy tower-defense games such as Two Worlds Castle Defense, where players take on the role of commanders of a military organization on a fictitious continent to defend a castle against foreign invaders. Other hot games are also scheduled to be launched in summer this year.
The extravagant visual feast and smooth gaming experience delivered by GameNow-Taiwan shall enable players to feel they are playing their games on an actual game console, with tailor made ultra-intuitive virtual keypad design for smoother and more natural control. A seamlessly integrated gaming experience across platforms and devices will allow players to play whenever and wherever they want to. This is expected to attract more light gamers, or those who usually don’t play games. Currently, every game is free for the first 30 minutes of gameplay to get players to try them out. Hopefully they will be hooked and thus, turned into paying players.
