Gamestream grows its console cloud gaming library with Deep Silver partnership

The B2B cloud gaming company, Gamestream, has secured a new partnership with the video games publisher and developer Deep Silver to add seven of its titles to the company’s expanding console cloud gaming library.

Under the deal, IP including Saints Row and Agents of Mayhem will now be available to Gamestream customers in Europe and APAC.

It marks the latest suite of games to join a portfolio of more than 300 curated video games from publishers including Disney, Capcom, Codemasters, and Focus Home Interactive. Gamestream has been deployed in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia mainly through white-labelled versions of the Gamestream cloud gaming platform.

Ivan Lebeau, CEO of Gamestream, commented: “Deep Silver is one of the most respected and admired publishers in the world. The sheer breadth of innovation, creativity and accessibility in their portfolio is perfectly aligned with Gamestream’s audience, which caters for casual and mid-core gamers.

“With the backing of the Koch Media Group, our new Deep Silver licensing arrangement enables us to offer our global telco partners, and their many millions of customers, access to classic franchises like the incredibly creative open-world opus that is Saints Row.”

Gamestream’s ever-expanding cloud gaming catalogue is platform agnostic, meaning that it is accessible across platforms including smartphones (iOS and Android PWA enabled apps), TV (OTT, CTV, Smart TV), PCs, Macs and tablets.

The seven Deep Silver titles now available on Gamestream are Agents of Mayhem, Homefront, Homefront: The Revolution, Kingdom Come: Deliverance, Saints Row IV: Game of the Century Edition, Saints Row: Gat Out Of Hell, and Saints Row: The Third – The Full Package
