Samsung has entered into a partnership with Hatch that allows Galaxy S10 5G owners access to the Hatch Premium service through the Hatch application on their devices, which allows them to play over 100 premium games instantly without having to download them.
Though it may seem like Google Play's instant play feature, Hatch Premium is actually a cloud gaming service that players can take advantage of to forego the game downloads, utilizing their device's 5G network speed compatibility to enjoy gaming on the go.
To gain access to the library of games that Hatch Premium already offers, users of the Galaxy S10 5G will need to download the Hatch for Samsung app from the Galaxy App Store, and from there it's really as simple as sifting through the games and finding one you'll want to play.
The big draw aside from the fact that these games are available through streaming instead of download and installation is that all of the games are premium and will cost no money to play other than the subscription to Hatch Premium. Games also come without any in-app purchases so users should be able to play any of the available content that would be available through purchases.
Hatch says that the list of over 100 games is continuing to grow and this is in part thanks to its relationships with the 160 plus developers, which means users of the service can expect more and more games to be added to it as time goes on.
Games that are already available include titles such as Hitman GO, Crashlands, Bad Piggies, Leo's Fortune, Botanicula, Party Hard, and Monument Valley just to name a few, though there's plenty more in there across a wide variety of game genres that players will be able to discover, like Araknoid Rising, which is a Hatch Original game that was developed by TAITO.
Though Hatch Premium does have an associated monthly cost with it Galaxy S10 5G owners can access some stuff through the free version of the service, however it is more limited in what's available. For example there are only 20 games as opposed to the full library and the service comes with ads.
Those who choose to subscribe will not only get rid of those ads, but will also get the full list of games including the Hatch Originals that can't be played anywhere else, and it'll even be possible to play games on your TV if you want a bigger screen to work with. There's even a list of games catered to kids in the premium service. Both however do come with social elements like leaderboards for some friendly competition.
The partnership between Samsung and Hatch means that anyone who buys a Galaxy S10 5G will get Hatch Premium for free for one month, and afterwards they'll need to pay the monthly cost. There doesn't currently seem to be any details on what Hatch Premium will cost, and Hatch doesn't mention when or if the service is actually live yet, just that it's now confirmed to be coming to the US through the Galaxy S10 5G.
