Steam, a global platform for game distribution, has challenged the & # 39; game streaming service & # 39; market, which is attracting the attention of the global game industry.
In response, Steam today announced that the beta build 688 of the & # 39; Steamboat Link & # 39; as early access via its forum was released on its platform.
Steam Link Anywhere is an important feature of the Beta-build 688. In the previous version, if the PC had to share the same home network with Steam Game and the streaming Play device, this "Steam Link Animate" is a system with the space limitation removed as the name suggests.
A wired / wireless network environment and special smart devices are essential for this. In short, after playing the game on a PC with steam and internet, you can enjoy streaming via the & # 39; SteamLink & # 39; application on other smart devices registered in the system. In other words, if you go to a fast and stable network environment, you can play games smoother.
In addition, & # 39; SteamLink Animate supports & # 39; Android OS and Raspberry PC in addition to the & # 39; SteamLink & # 39; hardware, which is currently being terminated. It is somewhat unfortunate that the iOS version, which has a large share in the large-scale game market, such as North America and Japan, was excluded because it conflicted with Apple's internal guidelines in May of last year. However, many users will be able to see the streaming game of steam game via Android OS smartphone.
Meanwhile, game-based game streaming on cloud game is expected to become a hot topic at Game Developers Conference (GDC) 2019, held in San Francisco, US, for approximately 5 days from March 18 to 22. Microsoft has its cloud gaming service & # 39; Project x Cloud & # 39; already demonstrated on the 13th of this month and has released the game project from Google, including & # 39; Yeti Controller & # 39; and & # 39; SteamLink Animware & # 39; Whether the industry attracts attention or not.
