OnLive is thrilled to announce today that due to overwhelming demand from our community of SL Go users, we are making the Firestorm Viewer available for mobile devices including Android and iOS. Due to current technical limitations, we are only able to offer one viewer for mobile devices. Our studies have shown that the SL Go community prefers the Firestorm Viewer, and now they can enjoy the same rich experience on their mobile devices.
We will still offer our users a choice of either Linden Lab’s Second Life Viewer the Firestorm Viewer on PC and Mac to supercharge older computers and laptops. We hope to bring this same choice to mobile devices soon, but still have some technical hurdles to overcome.
Users with existing SL Go accounts do not need to do anything! Just pick up your iPad or Android tablet and login with your SL Go account. Firestorm will appear.
For new users, we have 2 convenient ways to sign up for SL Go.
- For a 7 Day Free Trial visit: https://games.onlive.com/landing/slgo and sign up. Credit card or PayPal required.
- To pay “in-world” visit our SL Go Island to sign up and pay in L$. No name and no credit card are required.
