GeForce NOW is Now

The NVIDIA Blog announces "GeForce NOW Open for All," marking the official launch of NVIDIA's streaming service out of beta. This allows gamers to play PC games on lower-powered hardware, including Windows and macOS PCs and laptops, Shield, and Android phones. They also promise support for Chromebooks before the end of the year. There are two tiers available, a free tier which is limited to one-hour sessions and "standard" access, and a Founders tier which offers "priority" access, extended sessions, and RTX gaming. The Founders tier is $4.99/month, but this includes a free 90-day introductory period. Word is: "Just like the PC, GeForce NOW is an open platform. Itís powered by our world-class GPU architecture and uses our Game Ready Drivers for the best performance. And, because these are real PC games, GeForce NOW gives you the precision of keyboard and mouse gaming, as well as optimizations for game controllers." They clarify that their open platform refers to supporting your existing games and services: "Thatís why weíre working with existing PC game stores and publishers. With GeForce NOW, you can keep playing the games you already own and continue building libraries from the same stores you already use every day." Here's a bit more:
GeForce NOW is the only cloud gaming service with access to a wide range of free-to-play games, more than 30 and growing. In total, there are hundreds of games from more than 50 publishers that, once you own, are available for instant play. All these games are patched automatically in the cloud, so your library is always game ready.

While we continue to grow the library of instantly accessible games, there are also more than 1,000 games that can be played through single-session installs.

Games get added to the service weekly based on member requests, game popularity and publishersí input. If you donít see a game that you want to play, let us and the publisher know.

Play ON
GeForce NOW takes PC gaming and 60+ FPS action where itís never been before. Underpowered? No problem. Incompatible? No problem.

GeForce NOW platforms

Your old laptop never gamed like this before. That Mac, which for years has seen fewer games published for it or lost compatibility, can now play the latest games. Your rig doesnít have to move from room to room to game on the largest screen in your house ó your TV. And most recently, PC games go with you on the screen you take everywhere: your Android phone.

And later this year weíll add Chromebooks, giving members yet another screen to play on.
