Google Play Games for PC is now available in over 56 European countries


The Google Play Games beta has expanded to more than 40 European countries (including the UK) and New Zealand and the additions are now making the platform available in 56 countries in total, up from just 13 in November, according to the engadget report.  
Google Play Games currently offers over 100 Android titles that you may not all be familiar with, but the most popular releases like Asphalt 9, Homescapes, and Last Fortress are included. Google also routinely adds new games to the service, and promises to reach more countries "soon."
Requirements are relatively light, you'll need a PC with at least Windows 10, a solid state drive, 8GB of RAM, and a quad-core CPU running Intel UHD 630 graphics (found in Core chips from 8th and 9th generation) or AMD equivalent. 
Google recommends a dedicated "gaming-grade" GPU like NVIDIA's GeForce MX450 and a CPU with eight logical cores (say through hyperthreading), and if your computer isn't more than a few years old you can probably try that. 
And that's not the only way to play Android games on Windows, of course Windows 11 offers apps from the Amazon Store, while clients like BlueStacks have been available for years. However, Google Play Games might be attractive if you want full Google support and don't mind a limited catalog.
