OnLive reveals MultiView, 12 new games, in-browser updates

Wednesday, 6th June 2012 04:15 GMT By Matt Williams

OnLive made a slew of announcements at E3, including a new MultiView feature, and a number of in-browser updates that should make it easier for gamers who want to demo games without the need to sign up to the cloud gaming service.

The new MultiView feature will allow players to utilise picture-in-picture display to communicate with friends through text and voice chat, and will also you to view what a team-mate is seeing.

New updates to the service’s in-browser platform have been implemented, making it easier for users to demo the service without the need to sign up. The updates should essentially reduce the process to just two clicks for the majority of new users.

12 new titles were confirmed for the service before the year’s end from the likes of Sega, Square Enix, and Namco Bandai.

The full list is as follows:

  • Aliens: Colonial Marines (Sega)
  • The Cave (Sega)
  • Darksiders 2 (THQ)
  • Hell Yeah! (Sega)
  • Hitman: Absolution (Square Enix)
  • Inversion (Namco Bandai)
  • London 2012 (Sega)
  • Metro: Last Light (THQ)
  • Ravaged (2 Dawn Games)
  • Saints Row: The Third: Enter the Dominatrix (THQ)
  • Sid Meier’s Civilization 5: Gods and Kings (2K Games)
  • South Park: The Stick of Truth (THQ)

Thanks, Eurogamer.

    @2,
    “Apart from the partnership deal between PlayStation and a leading cloud gaming service, obviously.”
    Now I know what “obviously” means.

    I play OnLive TheBlackHole. Alot of people do. It needs more publisher support. But I doubt that while there are lucritive deals and platforms out there that OnLives libary will change too much. About all it is used for right now it make some cash selling older games. It is also good to demo new games. But with their current biz model it is a hard sell.

    It isn’t the isp speeds or that it works or doesn’t work.

    It is more that you don’t own the game. The new games cost nearly(some just) much as they do anywhere else, and are on their system for a period of time(usualy three years). You can use the games as much as you want for three years. After that they are gone. And that model is flawed to say the least.

    the best value is to buy the play pass that lets you play 50, 60 plus games a month for one fee. The price is good. The services works good, if you have a decent isp, but the selection of games on that service is too low. Full of off beat PC games most people won’t car about.

    Cloud is, i think, the way of the future. But we haven’t seen it delivered the right way yet. And some folks still have bad isps.
