Facebook Gaming has launched multiple cloud streaming games in Facebook browsers and apps. In a blog post, Facebook gave some details about the goals and expectations of cloud gaming. Currently, 5 games support cloud streaming via Facebook. The lineup includes Asphalt 9: Legends, Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, PGA Tour Golf Shootout, Solitaire: Arthur’s Tale, and WWE Supercards.Facebook plans to roll out more games in the future, the first addition is Dirt Bike Unchained, and Facebook will be added in the coming weeks. Starting next year, developers will be able to choose to add in-app purchases to their cloud gaming.

Facebook is an experience players are accustomed to finding on the platform, so we will initially focus on games that are free to play. The service starts with games designed for mobile, so at the start, all games will be playable on the touch screen or mouse and keyboard.

Apple users will not have access to Facebook’s new game experiment. The company hasn’t launched the service on iOS yet, saying, “The iOS path is uncertain, but one thing is clear: Apple has changed the way it treats games and continues to manage its invaluable resources.” Stated. Instead, cloud gaming is released in beta on Android devices and the web.Currently, this service is only available in some parts of the United States. Access is available in California, Texas, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Washington DC, Virginia and West Virginia and will be expanded in the coming months.

Facebook believes that mainstream cloud gaming still has a long way to go, so the company doesn’t promise big progress anytime soon. Facebook Gaming’s cloud service is also not designed to replace current gaming hardware. Instead, the goal is to add another option to jump quickly into gameplay.

Facebook and Oculus recently released Oculus Quest 2, which was called “one of the best VR headsets you can buy today” in the Oculus Quest 2 review. However, players should be aware that deleting the linked Facebook account will result in the loss of all Oculus games.
