Vortex Cloud makes streaming video games easy as Netflix

Gamers, start your modems.

If you’re looking for a better way to stream games, here’s your solution: the Vortex Cloud.

Think of Vortex as the Netflix for gaming. It flaunts a library of over 100 popular games that you can play anywhere and all you need to access it is a subscription and an internet connection of at least 10Mbps. Which means you’re literally saving thousands of dollars by not having to buy a high-end PC. Instead, users stream whatever game(s) they want from Vortex’s powerful servers. Which also allows you to bypass lengthy downloads and updates.

Here’s how it works: choose the game you want, press play, and turn your browser, laptop, TV, or phone into a full-on gaming machine in seconds. And if you’re streaming with Windows or Chrome, there’s a Vortex desktop app to make your experience run as smooth as possible. That said, it should also be noted that some selections require users to own them on Steam and then link their Steam accounts to Vortex.

The Vortex Cloud isn’t where yesteryear’s games go to die, either. So if you’re worried about keeping up with new releases, don’t be. The only thing you should be concerned about is your ability to defeat the next big boss so you can move onto that next title.

Best of all, our readers can save over 30% on a 3-month membership to Vortex Cloud Gaming. The subscription usually retails for $30, but you can get it through the Daily Dot Store for just $19.99.
