NVIDIA GeForce Now Adds Death Stranding, Hyper Scape And More
Another week rolls around and NVIDIA is adding another slew of excellent PC games to its GeForce Now library. Top of the list this week is Hideo Kojima’s latest, Death Stranding, which has just debuted on PC this week. If you own it through either Steam or Epic, you can now play it on any GeForce Now compatible device. Nvidia has also announced 9 other brand new titles now available to stream on GeForce Now including Far Cry Primal, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint, and TrackMania 2 Stadium.
Here’s the full list of what makes the cut this week:
- Death Stranding
- Hyper Scape Open Beta
- Enter the Gungeon
- Far Cry Primal
- Surviving Mars
- Totally Accurate Battle Simulator
- Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint
- TrackMania 2 Stadium
- Unfortunate Spacemen
It’s also good to see continued support for GeForce Now from Ubisoft, with not only its new battle royale, Hyper Scape, joining, but also titles from Far Cry, Ghost Recon and the legendary Trackmania 2 Stadium.
The news comes just two days after Google announced Sekiro for its competing Stadia platform. The difference, however, is that Sekiro is planned for a Stadia launch later in the year while Death Stranding is ready to play on GeForce Now as we speak. It’s another slap in the face to Google who has been reeling from bad press and overpromises since its streaming platform launched earlier this year.
NVIDIA GeForce NOW incorporates technology that utilizes AI and RTX GPUs to enable “the next generation of performance and visuals”. It’s NVIDIA’s improved deep learning neural network that “boosts frame rates while generating beautiful, sharp images for games”. Since the base technology is game streaming, games begin playing instantly when you fire them up. They also include an experience that has been optimized for cloud gaming and includes Game Ready Driver performance improvements, managed directly by NVIDIA.
GeForce Now is free to try in one-hour sessions while paid tiers will lift this time limit and allow for more advanced graphical options. Unlike Stadia, Nvidia’s streaming service will only stream certain PC games that you already own in your Steam, UPlay, or Epic library.
