Streaming services are surging in popularity thanks to most people staying at home due to COVID-19. While video streaming services are getting the most attention, cloud gaming is also on the up and up since it’s become difficult to go out and buy new gaming hardware. If you don’t own a modern gaming console or a decent gaming PC but you have a stable and fast Internet connection, cloud game streaming is definitely worth a try. Services like Google Stadia, Microsoft xCloud, and NVIDIA GeForce NOW are leading the cloud gaming pack, and out of these three, GeForce NOW has been around the longest. It is also unique in that you don’t have to purchase games for the platform itself – NVIDIA plugs into your existing Steam game library, although not every game is supported.
The current list of supported games is already pretty sizeable and vastly exceeds the Google Stadia library for now, but NVIDIA wants to assure you that new content will keep coming to your door pretty frequently. How frequently, exactly? According to NVIDIA, as frequently as every Thursday, so that’s a weekly basis right there. The first set of new games for this weekly scheme includes Control from Remedy Entertainment, a challenging sci-fi game, Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead, and several more.
- Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead
- Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc
- Dungeons 3
- IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad
- Jagged Alliance 2 – Wildfire
- The Guild 3
We’re glad to see NVIDIA announce a consistent release schedule, and we hope that each week brings exciting new games to the cloud gaming platform. You can get started with GeForce NOW on Windows, macOS, SHIELD TV, and Android smartphones. The service will be coming to Chromebooks later this year. It is currently available in two tiers: Free (with a 1-hour session length limitation) and Founders (with RTX support, up to 6 hours of playtime each session, and priority access).
