Nvidia is Keeping its Promise to Add More Games to GeForce Now; Square Enix Re-joins the Service

GeForce Now is a streaming service from Nvidia. It can instantly transform any device, be it a MacBook, laptop, or an Android device into a gaming PC. It is a subscription-based service that allows you to play your games from any platform (Steam, GOG, etc.) via Nvidia’s high-performance servers. The base service is free, but it has a cap on the session. You can always end a session and start a new one right away, but one needs to pay to access services like cloud storage and Ray Tracing.

The service faced a lot of controversies; many publishers pulled their games out of the service owing to issues regarding revenue generated from the service. Publishers like Square Enix, Bethesda were one of the firsts to remove their games from the service. According to a report from The Verge, the stance of the developers was mostly vague; it could be due to revenue split problem or the fact many developers would want their consumers to repurchase the game for the virtual machine.

Around two months ago, Nvidia promised that it would add more games to the service every week. Epic Games and CD Projekt Red were the only remaining publishers who still had their games on the service. CDPR also promised that Cyberpunk 2077 would be playable on the service at launch.

Nvidia has surprisingly kept its promise with more and more games being added to the service every week. More importantly, Square Enix has joined the service again. Almost all of the mainstream games from Square Enix are now available on the service. You can find a comprehensive list of the games available on the service here. It is still not known what went behind the scene, but it is good news nonetheless.

Lastly, the pricing is one of the cheapest among  other cloud gaming services and costs only $5 per month, and that also adds features like RTX for the games that support DXR.
