Without custom hardware or proprietary storefront, enjoy any game available from any PC portal – Steam, BattleNet, HumbleBundle, Uplay, Origin, GoG and more. LiquidSky’s unmatched latency delivers streamed resolutions at up to 1080p and 100 FPS on any supported device for a top-of-the-line desktop-quality PC gaming experience at a fraction of the cost – freeing you to play your games nearly anywhere, anytime and on almost any device.
