F2P MMO War Thunder now playable via OnLive CloudLift

Up and away.

OnLive's streaming service CloudLift now supports free-to-play MMO War Thunder.

It means that you can now pick up your progress away from your gaming PC on any CloudLift-enabled device - a lower-powered work PC, for example, laptop or Android tablet.

CloudLift lets you sync saves and stream gameplay from the service itself, meaning there's no need to install the game again or see a dip in graphical quality on lighter-powered machines.

OnLive last month halved the price of CloudLift's monthly subscription to £4.95. There's also a 7-day free trial to get you started.

Five new games were announced for the service at the same time - Warner Bros. titles Lego The Hobbit, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate, Injustice: Gods Among Us, Lord of the Rings: War in the North and Devolver Digital's Shadow Warrior.
