GeForce NOW is slowly reversing the damage caused by the early publisher exodus as Nvidia adds support for a steady flow of new games.
Although we haven’t heard any big announcements from Nvidia about its GeForce NOW cloud gaming service for some time now, the GPU giant has slowly been chipping away to improve the service.
How? By securing support for a steady flow of new games in line with a promise to continually expand the GeForce NOW roster.
Every Thursday, Nvidia takes to its forums to share a new batch of “Game Ready” titles.
There’s a good reason for keeping up with this and reminding players that the service is ever-expanding. Some of the industry’s biggest publishers abandoned the platform shortly after it launched commercially back in February.
Warner Bros., Xbox Game Studios, Codemasters, and Klei Entertainment followed suit last month.
This exodus took the shine off GeForce NOW’s impressive launch. The initial offering of support for any owned game streamed to a user’s computer from a stacked server rack running Nvidia’s RTX GPUs caught the attention of more than a few.
What seemed like a rapidly dwindling selection of supported games left many questioning the merits of the service as a consequence.
In an attempt to turn the tide, Nvidia announced in March that Ubisoft was throwing its full support behind GeForce NOW. Ubisoft is granting access to its catalog, including the complete Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry series.
In parallel, Nvidia also secured the support of Epic, Bungie, and Bandai Namco.
While recent additions of Game Ready games may not carry the weight and clout of a big publisher’s portfolio, the roster of supported games is slowly swelling.
The most recent slate features a decently stacked selection of games, including Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition and The Wonderful 101: Remastered, among others.
If you haven’t tried out GeForce NOW since launch, this may be the time to revisit. You might be quite surprised by what games are currently supported.
