Facebook collaborates with Assassin’s Creed creator Ubisoft to expand its cloud gaming service

Facebook Gaming has announced a broader rollout of its cloud gaming service.

The service has been slowly adding more free-to-play games to its initial library of Asphalt 9: Legends, PGA Tour Golf Shootout, Solitaire: Arthur’s Tale, and WWE SuperCard.

Over 25 games are now supported, and Facebook says it now has over 1.5 million users playing cloud-streamed games each month.

Facebook plans for support for cloud gaming to completely cover the mainland US by the fall, and in addition to expanding coverage in Canada and Mexico over time, it hopes to reach Western and Central Europe by early next year.

Unfortunately, coverage is still limited to Android only, with Apple’s ongoing restrictions of what it considers to be within its storefront preventing cloud gaming services like Facebook from reaching iOS users.

Facebook also committed to not charging customers or subscription fees for services. The service is now more widely available through the Facebook Gaming app on Android or web browsers.
