Nvidia’s GeForce Now cloud gaming service received a new trailer recently highlighting its best features. Launched in beta in 2015 and more recently open to the public in February 2020, GeForce Now is a gaming service that allows players to stream the latest in demanding PC games right to their devices.
Though it’s been around for the better part of a year, GeForce Now’s new trailer emphasizes its focus on “powerful PC gaming,” which is expected of the company responsible for some of the most powerful graphics cards on the market. The trailer goes on to poke fun at low frames-per-second, stating that the cloud service can reach 60 FPS.
While it’s a feat matched by Google Stadia, a rival streaming service, it’s still an important selling point. Especially since Stadia requires a separate monthly subscription and GeForce Now links to a player’s Steam account for full access to their library. Nvidia’s service also offers a free, 1-hour session subscription.
As Nvidia’s official website explains, “Connect to your favorite stores and stream your library o games. You make your purchase on your personal store account, your games will always stay with you.”
We’ve known that GeForce Now can be used on mobile devices, but the trailer drives home how easy it is to play AAA titles in the palm of your hand. In the trailer, we see Destiny 2 being played on a mobile device. Sure, it requires a bulky controller attachment that nobody will want to carry around, but it’s still a fun selling point for Nvidia.
All of 2020 has consisted of players waiting for the arrival of Cyberpunk 2077, and GeForce Now is going to capitalize on that. The new trailer ends on a high note, with an announcement that CD Projekt Red’s highly anticipated action RPG will be available on GeForce Now at launch.
Another feature available through GeForce Now is Nvidia Highlights, which records and shares your most epic moments across specific titles. Currently, it’s a relatively small list of compatible games, including Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Apex Legends, Fortnite, Tekken 7, ARK: Survival Evolved, and Dying Light: bad Blood. However, that’s likely to grow over time. GeForce also supports Nvidia Freestyle and Nvidia Ansel on specific titles. A full list of Highlights, Freestyle, and Ansel compatibility can be found here.
Along with the free 1-hour session subscription, Nvidia also has a “Founders” option, currently on sale for $4.99 per month. This provides players with:
- Priority access to the latest games
- Extended session length for more playtime
- RTX on for the best visuals
