After a rough few months, NVIDIA’s GeForce Now is finally on the up as the company announces new features and games for the video game streaming service. NVIDIA announced today that it has added DLSS 2.0 support and 21 new titles to GeForce Now.
“Through the power of AI and RTX GPUs, DLSS 2.0 enables the next generation of performance and visuals in games. It’s our new and improved deep learning neural network that boosts frame rates while generating beautiful, sharp images for games.” reads NVIDIA’s announcement (via Wccftech).
DLSS 2.0 is a relatively new AI-based technology that allows NVIDIA’s RTX GPUs to “maximize ray tracing settings and increase output resolutions.” Normally, you would need an RTX GPU to make use of DLSS 2.0, but GeForce Now users playing supported titles such as Control can access its benefits for free. The addition of DLSS 2.0 will allow subscribers to experience better “graphics quality settings while maintaining smooth, stutter-free frame rates”.
Additionally, GeForce Now’s diminishing catalog finally went the other way and added 21 new games. While most of the entries are fairly old, there are two new releases. Hyper-realistic trucking simulator SnowRunner and physics-based moving simulator Moving Out both launched just a few days ago. Here is the full list of games joining the GeForce Now catalog this week:
- Amnesia: The Dark Descent

Since launch, GeForce Now has seen numerous publishers and developers pull out for various reasons. Over the past few months, big names such as Xbox, Codemasters, Bethesda and Activision all removed their titles from the streaming service. Although most of them aren’t anything to exciting, its great to see new games join the GeForce now catalog.
