Cyberpunk 2077 Will Be Available On GeForce NOW At Launch

CD Projekt RED and NVIDIA have announced that Cyberpunk 2077 will be available on GeForce Now at launch day. This basically means that those that have purchased the game will be able to play it on different devices via NVIDIA’s streaming service. The video game streaming competition is heating up, with the recently released GeForce NOW service from Nvidia adding a token feather to its cap. Turns out Cyberpunk 2077 will be a supported title when it launches this September.

In a forum post made earlier today Nvidia announced the much anticipated CD Projekt Red title, “…will be made available on GeForce NOW the day it is released.” Players still have to buy the game in order to play it (seeing as GeForce NOW works off your existing PC library, unlike Google’s Stadia, or even Microsoft’s xCloud), and the post only mentions Steam. No official word if the GOG version of the game will work with GeForce NOW, so prospective Cyberpunk 2077 buyers take note.

From NVIDIA:

There was a ton of excitement over the incredibly limited GeForce RTX 2080Ti Cyberpunk Edition. And today, we can share some more great news, this time for GeForce NOW gamers. Cyberpunk 2077 will be available on GeForce NOW the day it’s released! GeForce NOW members will be able to grab their copy on Steam and play the game the moment it’s available. GeForce NOW Founders members can explore the streets of Night City with RTX ON, fully optimized and instantly available, even on a Mac laptop. We’re thrilled to work with CD PROJEKT RED to bring its eagerly-anticipated game to GeForce NOW. And while you wait, be sure to check out CDPR’s critically acclaimed Witcher series, also available to play through GeForce NOW. We’re PC gamers too, so we’ll be right there with you playing Cyberpunk on Day One.

Cyberpunk 2077 is a hotly anticipated title coming from CD PROJEKT RED, the same developers that gave the world the critically acclaimed game, the Witcher 3. It will set loose the game’s protagonist, V, onto the streets of Night City, where your choices matter and the world feels alive. At least, that’s what CD PROJEKT RED promises, and from early views of gameplay and their previous games, it should absolutely deliver. And now, you’ll be able to play it anywhere with GeForce NOW. Yes, even a Mac.

Nvidia also mentioned that GeForce NOW Founders will have access to RTX features in the game, meaning PC players who do not own a requisite GPU for the new tech can sample it via the streaming service. RTX will require a $5 a month subscription to enable, though the free tier can still play the game without the settings. This is fortunate news for PC gamers on the go, who will want to spend time with the game even while away from their computers. Cyberpunk 2077 launches September 17th.

Cyberpunk 2077 also comes to PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on September 17, 2020.
