GameRanger Passes 5M Users

GameRanger announces that five million gamers have registered for this service providing support for multiplayer play in over 600 PC games. Here's what they have to say about the milestone:

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 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
