NVIDIA Reveals GeForce Now Support For Five New Games
NVIDIA has revealed five new games now available through its fledgling GeForce Now cloud gaming service. Players can now jump in and stream Nioh: Complete Edition, Dead or Alive 6, Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIV, Deadliest Catch: The Game, and Dungeon Defenders: Awakened.
GeForce Now allows users to stream any compatible game they already own in their existing game libraries on digital storefronts like Steam and the Epic Game Store. Using NVIDIA RTX-enabled top-of-the-line servers, GeForce Now then beams these in 1080p 60k (internet connection permitting) to the device of the user’s choosing, including Android mobile phones, Macs, SHIELD TVs, and, of course, desktops.
The idea is to allow users to play games that their existing hardware doesn’t support, taking the need to fork out for an expensive upgrade or pricey RTX GPU out of the equation.
Two weeks ago, NVIDIA announced that it had hit 1 million users after launching in the US and Europe in early February. Much of that success is down to NVIDIA offering a free tier with no limitations other than a one-hour session length cap. A free three-month introductory offer for the premium Founders tier to celebrate the launch of the service also helped ramp up interest in GeForce Now.
It hasn’t all been smooth sailing for GeForce Now, though. Last month, NVIDIA announced it had removed the libraries of both Activision Blizzard and Bethesda following what the GPU giant called a ‘misunderstanding.’
As recently as last week, it surfaced that NVIDIA has effectively added Hinterland Studio’s survival title The Long Dark to the service without seeking out the requisite permission. At Hinterland Studio’s request, NVIDIA removed the game from the service.
Despite losing some big-name publishers, NVIDIA says it plans to introduce support for over 1,500 games in the months ahead. Barring any further issues with permissions and commercial agreements, GeForce Now is set to expand and cement its position as the go-to cloud gaming service for gamers.
