Today, AT&T announced that Control Ultimate Edition is now free to stream for its customers for a limited time.
According to today’s announcement, “low latency of AT&T 5G paired with cloud streaming technology helps deliver virtually instant, high-fidelity gameplay to the devices you already own.”
This means that Control can be streamed on any AT&T connected phone, tablet, or computer. There is no downloading, subscriptions, or hidden costs. Customers will just need an “AT&T postpaid mobility plan” to play.
The streaming is powered by Google’s Immersive Stream for Games, which is the same technology used when AT&T offered customers Batman: Arkham Knight.
This service lets gamers who are AT&T customers try out the full game. AT&T hopes this leads to publishers using “the combination of 5G connectivity and cloud streaming technology to offer limited-time play sessions directly from a search result” in the future.
In February 2022, it was announced that Google would offer its streaming technology to companies like AT&T, as a white-label product.
