Utomik Launches Its Game Subscription Service With Over 700 Titles

Utomik, a company you might not have heard of until now, has just announced they’re moving out of the Beta stages of their games subscription program. This is not a streaming service – instead, it’s a Netflix-like subscription that grants users access to an ever increasing catalog of games, which they can download to their systems, and then play. So while you won’t have any connection or quality issues, and data-cap problems are likely to be less severe, you’ll still have to possess the hardware clout to actually render the games.

The more than 760 titles available mean Utomik is claiming their platform has more options than Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass and PlayStation’s PS Now services – not to mention EA’s Vault. Users can find games from publishers such as Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, Disney, SEGA, Epic Games, THQ Nordic and Curve Digital, just to name a few. The company says they add about 20 games per month to their service, and have announced that IO Interactive will bring their acclaimed Hitman franchise to the library this summer. Pricing is competitive, and will only get better over time, as more and more playtime and a bigger variety of titles will be available. For €6.99 per month, users can play whatever games they desire; for €9.99, the family plan allows access for up to 4 different users to the same account. The market will ultimately dictate whether or not this service is to become the Netflix of games – the lack of exclusives might hurt it in comparison to other ecosystems.
