Red Faction: Armageddon, OnLive’s First PC Demo Exclusive, is 100th Game Averaging Two New Games a Week: Pace is Accelerating
Los Angeles, Calif. (E3 Expo, 2011)—June 2, 2011— OnLive, the pioneer of on-demand instant-play videogames is pleased to announce the addition of the 100th game to its catalog, Red Faction®: Armageddon™, scheduled to be released at 12:01 AM on June 7th, less than one year after the OnLive® Game Service launch.
OnLive’s catalog has not only grown in quantity and quality, but it has increasingly become more current, with most new games being released the same day and date as consoles and PCs. OnLive’s 100th game, Red Faction: Armageddon, is no exception, available for OnLive instant play the very second it is available on other platforms.
In fact, Red Faction: Armageddon marks another OnLive milestone: OnLive is the exclusive provider of the game’s pre-release PC demo, exposing many PC gamers for the first time to a hassle-free instant-play demo requiring no download, disc or installation. So, OnLive’s 100th game is also OnLive’s first PC demo exclusive.
OnLive’s catalog spans the full range of game genres, from first-person shooters to sports to role-playing games to casual games, with prices to suit all budgets. OnLive patented cloud gaming technology enables the same game to played seamlessly on almost any HDTV, TV, PC, Mac or tablet, integrated with exclusive OnLive social features such as massive spectating/voice chat, Brag Clip™ videos and Facebook integration.
The OnLive Game Service is free and almost all games have free demos. Game rentals and purchases range from $0.99 to $53.99, with frequent sales promotions. OnLive also offers an exclusive PlayPack Bundle—a growing library of 60+ games, featuring AAA titles like Homefront®, Borderlands and Just Cause 2—all available for instant play at just $9.99 per month.
“Reaching 100 games in its first year makes the OnLive catalog one of the fastest-growing core videogame catalogs for a new platform,” said John Spinale, VP of Games & Media. “We’re grateful for the support and commitment we’ve received from our publishing partners that has made this possible, and we’re extremely excited to have reached the point where publishers consider us one of the major platforms for their day and date releases. The pace of new content will only continue to accelerate.”

About Red Faction: Armageddon
Half a century after the Red Faction resistance freed Mars, the red planet again becomes a battleground. Colonists struggle for survival in the underground mines after the surface is rendered uninhabitable. When Darius Mason, grandson of revolution heroes Alec Mason and Samanya, unknowingly releases a long-dormant evil, Armageddon is unleashed on Mars. As settlements are torn asunder, only Darius and the Red Faction can save mankind. The battle will take them to the core of the storm-blasted planet through ice caves and lava flows until they are face to face against the unspeakable threat. Red Faction: Armageddon expands on the critically acclaimed, best-selling franchise with new, groundbreaking challenges. You are humanity’s last hope for survival.
