SEGA and Warner Bros. Join NVIDIA SHIELD on GeForce NOWMarch 15, 2016
SEGA and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment will add a combined nine hit titles to the GeForce NOW service in the coming weeks. NVIDIA announced the additions at the Game Developers Conference, in San Francisco. Square Enix added games to the service just last month.
GeForce NOW is the world’s most powerful game-streaming service. It features cloud access to GeForce GPUs and a click-to-play time of less than 30 seconds — 100x faster than waiting for traditional digital downloads. It’s the fastest, easiest way to play great video games, and GeForce NOW is only available on NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV — the fastest, Android-based media-streaming device for the living room.
SONIC the Hedgehog Spins onto SHIELD
Under the SEGA deal, four games from the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise will come to GeForce NOW. The Sonic series is one of the most popular platform franchises of all time. And families can enjoy it together on SHIELD with GeForce NOW’s multi-controller support for up to four players. Also coming from SEGA are the hit games Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine and Alpha Protocol.
“SEGA is delighted to bring Sonic the Hedgehog to a new generation of players who can enjoy the series on GeForce NOW as easily as they’d watch a Netflix movie,” said John Clark, senior vice president of commercial publishing at SEGA Europe.
Mad Max and Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor Coming
Two fantastic open-world action-adventure games from Warner Bros. will soon be available in the GeForce NOW store: Mad Max and Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. Both are based on movie franchises and have won rave reviews. The popular children’s game LEGO Jurassic Park will also be added to the GeForce NOW store for purchase.
“Millennial gamers are increasingly turning to game-streaming services to instantly play their games and NVIDIA GeForce NOW is the early performance leader,” said Patrick Moorhead, president and principal analyst at Moor Insights & Strategy.
