Game rental stores are no longer a viable option for gamers anymore. One of the only game rental options available these days is GameFly. Sega might be changing that.
Today, Sega announced a partnership with GameSessions, a service that allows gamers to try out or rent PC games before you purchase them. Its games will have free trials, giving players around 120 to 240 minutes to play the games. During that free trial, you can choose to rent the game for a certain period of time.
Currently, the rental option includes paying to have access to the game for a day. After the trial is over, you can purchase the game, which will be put into your Steam library. Your save will also transfer over.
Sega titles that will be supported include Company of Heroes 2, Football Manager 2015, and Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine.
Sega’s new partnership is not just targeting American audiences. The company stated that GameSessions will let it expand into Mexico and Brazil.
