BlueStacks X is a cloud gaming service that uses streaming to offer users free access to mobile games across various devices and platforms.
This means that BlueStacks X subscribers will be able to play Android games on their web browser and across most iOS, Windows, Linux, macOS, and Android devices for free. To make this possible, the company has built a hybrid cloud technology under its now.gg brand that utilizes Amazon's AWS Graviton servers. Bluestacks X has only launched as a beta, offering 14 games to start. These include popular mobile games such as 'Shadow Legends,' 'Disney Sorcerer’s Arena,' and 'Lords Mobile: Kingdom Wars.'
What makes BlueStacks X such an interesting service, however, is that it is entirely focused on making mobile games more accessible across a wide variety of devices. In contrast, other cloud gaming services -- like Google Stadia -- are looking to make console games accessible via mobile devices.
