Deutsche Telekom has long acknowledged the potential of the gaming market. It is invested in different activities, from sponsoring an e-sports team to offering its own cloud gaming solution. Keeping up with the evolving technology in the gaming market means gamers need to constantly update their console or PC – and that is expensive. This is all in the past with cloud gaming. Now, the high-performance PCs are in the Deutsche Telekom datacenters, and customers can stream the games directly to their device. They can also make use of the quality of high bandwidth and low latency connections of Deutsche Telekom.

To provide customers with the best possible experience, Deutsche Telekom is running a closed beta test of its “Magenta Gaming” cloud gaming solution. The closed beta is for free and open for Deutsche Telekom customers in Germany with a minimum bandwith of 50Mbit/s.

At the moment, the game portfolio ranges from Triple AAA titles to casual or multiplayer titles in categories such as action, adventure, role playing games, racing, simulation, sports, strategy and so on. Titles with age restriction are protected by an age verification process to ensure a safe home entertainment solution. Deutsche Telekom plans to launch the commercial product in 2020. Furthermore, it is planned to enhance the functionalities of the platform step-by-step, adding new content and features every few months. The overarching goal is to seamlessly integrate the service in the current ecosystems of Deutsche Telekom to provide a superior user experience.

Enjoy Germany

Until next time
