China Mobile Hong Kong is partnering with Taiwan-based cloud gaming technology provider Ubitus to launch a 5G-enabled cloud gaming platform for its subscribers in Hong Kong. The partnership is part of China Mobile Hong Kong’s larger plans to attract 5G customers with services powered by its next-generation wireless technology.
The subscription-based platform, officially known as UGAME, will be able to offer instant console gaming experiences to its users, meaning they will not need to purchase expensive high-end computers or game consoles, according to a Tuesday press release.
Currently in its beta stage the UGAME service is available for download from Google Play for free and offers 40 game titles with various genres ranging from action to adventure, the press release said.
The announcement about the partnership comes just one day before China Mobile Hong Kong started offering its commercial 5G services in Hong Kong on Apr. 1. So far, the mobile carrier has established some 500 5G base stations in Hong Kong.
