Launching today (1st February 2021), consumers in France, Belgium, Spain and South Africa will be able to play more than 165 top tier games on their mobile phones through RemoteMyApp’s cloud gaming platform, Vortex.gg.
The Vortex app connects users to the best gaming experiences on the market – removing many traditional barriers to entry. Hosted in the cloud with processing done remotely, players don’t need to invest in powerful consoles or make expensive software purchases to run hi-spec games.
The cloud gaming market, set to be worth $5.3 billion by 2023, is an untapped opportunity for most Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) – and this Vortex subscription package provides the first mobile deal of its kind within these territories.
RemoteMyApp’s Vortex.gg platform is complemented by PM Connect partnering the product with MNOs, connecting new audiences to the games via distribution, digital marketing and mobile payments via direct carrier billing (DCB) – enabling consumers to subscribe to the app by adding payments to their phone bill.
Once purchased via their mobile phone, subscribers will be able to download and use the Vortex app on all of their connected devices – including tablets, smart TVs and desktops.
PM Connect’s global network of MNOs has been instrumental to the multi-national deal, with the initial rollout in France, Belgium, Spain and South Africa on Orange and more carriers set to join them as 2021 progresses.
Our deal gives MNOs the opportunity to monetise cloud gaming, connecting their users to an industry-leading platform, all the while driving data-consumption and their 5G propositions to a captive audience. The democratisation of top-tier gaming experiences is something PM Connect is proud to facilitate and we are excited to progress the partnership in further markets. It’s an unmissable opportunity for MNOs.
