GAMERANGER MULTIPLAYER SERVICE HITS 5 MILLION REGISTERED PC GAMERS
Perth, Western Australia -- March 12, 2014 -- GameRanger, the PC online gaming service, today announced that five million users have signed up and created multiplayer profiles to play their games online with friends.
GameRanger provides multiplayer for over 600 PC games. Many of these games either had their original servers shut down ("end-of-life") or had massive networking problems with their existing systems.
More recently, GameRanger has become a popular solution for game developers distributing their games across multiple online stores without being locked into a multiplayer "walled-garden" on a single store. GameRanger allows friends to play each other, while still having freedom to choose where they buy their games.
"When you've bought a game you love, you should be able to keep playing it with your friends regardless of how many others are still playing," said Scott Kevill, president of GameRanger Technologies. "Server shutdowns, 'sunsetting' and 'kill-switches' are the dark side of multiplayer gaming."
GameRanger keeps multiplayer games alive by reversing the multiplayer decline and creating thriving communities.
GameRanger runs on Windows XP or later and is available as a free download from http://www.GameRanger.com
GameRanger is the longest running multiplayer online gaming service, having originally opened to Mac gaming in 1999. In November 2008, GameRanger expanded to PC gaming and now offers full lobby support for over 600 games -- significantly more than any other multiplayer service -- and now has over 5 million members worldwide. GameRanger Technologies is located in Perth, Western Australia. For more information, visit http://www.GameRanger.com and follow http://twitter.com/GameRanger and http://facebook.com/GameRanger
