Video game rental service GameFly just announced the  launch of a public beta for its PC game service, allowing users to download and play select PC games for the duration of their GameFly subscription. This move to digital marks brand new territory for the service, as GameFly previously only offered physical disk via the postal service.

Currently, games featured on the new GameFly client include Assassin’s Creed and Saints Row 2.

“We are thrilled to finally be able to open up the beta so anyone interested in video games can start using the client, and we are hard at work expanding our catalog of  PC titles for our users to play for free in the Unlimited PC Play section,” said Sean Spector, GameFly co-founder and SVP of Business Development and Content. “Casual to hardcore gamers can enjoy titles like Assassin’s Creed, Deus Ex or Saints Row 2, to Earthworm Jim, Jewel Quest or World of Goo at no additional cost to their GameFly subscription.”

Publishers currently participating in Unlimited PC Play include: 1C; 2D Boy; Atari; Bohemia Interactive; Capcom; Iceberg Interactive; Interplay; iWin; Kalypso Media; Layernet; Legacy Interactive; Meridian4; MumboJumbo; Paradox Interactive; PlayFirst; Playrix; SelectSoft; SouthPeak Games; Spicy Horse; Square Enix; Strategy First; Telltale Games; THQ; Ubisoft; and Viva Media.
