GamersGate's FreeGames: Watch Ads, Play Games For Free

by Rainier on June 8, 2011 @ 2:39 p.m. PDT

GamersGate announced the upcoming launch of FreeGames, a free-to-play ad supported platform, allowing users to play and enjoy both PC and Mac titles free of charge after watching a short advertisement at the launch of the game.

Gamers will be able to have up to five games available for free on their account at any time with the capability to add additional games.

With over 3,000 titles, GamersGate has the largest catalog of games available for download on the web. The company expects that a large portion of them will be available in the ad-supported model for the September launch.

“The new service offers the best of both worlds for both gamers and publishers,” said Theodore Bergquist, CEO at GamersGate. “Gamers can play games for free, catch up on franchises or try a game out before they buy. Publishers will receive ad revenue while expanding their audience. We’ve always been at the forefront of the digital delivery business and I’m confident that our new service will help reshape the industry.”
