Google said on Tuesday that the beta program of its multi-platform product ‘’Play Games on PC’’ will soon be rolled out to players in Europe and Japan, and gain new titles like Garena Free Fire and Ludo King.

The announcement came at the Google for Games Summit 2023 that took place on March 14, where the company also announced that it would offer free machine translation for Android apps.

The tech giant first introduced Play Games on PC at the Game Awards 2021, launched the initial beta in South Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong in January last year, expanded it to Thailand in March, and Australia in late August.

The company said yesterday that the service, which allows gamers to play mobile titles on their desktop devices, is now available in a total of 13 markets, and will be expanded to Japan and Europe in the upcoming months.

In addition to the expansion, Google will also grow the game catalog of the service by adding the following titles:

  • Garena Free Fire
  • Ludo King
  • Uma Musume
  • Angry Birds 2
  • Disney Mirrorverse
  • MapleStory M

Furthermore, Google also announced a partnership with Intel to help developers bring their games that are compiled for mobile devices instead of PCs (arm64 instead of x86) to its Play Games on PC service. However, the company still recommends that developers continue optimizing their titles for multiplatform experiences.
