Giving what we love about PC gaming to more people. That’s the vision that inspired our journey to develop GeForce NOW into an open platform that welcomed gamers, developers and publishers.
For gamers, we provide the power of a GeForce GPU to play the games you love from the cloud.
For developers, we used our beta phase to show how GeForce NOW could expand a game’s audience to low-end PC laptops, Mac computers, Android devices and, soon, to Chromebooks, without any porting effort.
For publishers, we connected gamers directly to game stores, so they maintain control of their content and we stay out of their economics.
Many in the games industry are riding the wave of excitement GeForce NOW has generated. And we’re just getting started.
A New Frontier
Earlier this month, we passed a milestone on our cloud gaming journey by removing the waitlist and opening our doors to more gamers. Over 1 million new gamers have taken to the cloud by signing up for a free plan or upgrading to the Founders membership, which includes a 90-day free trial.
This trial is an important transitional period where gamers, developers and publishers can try the premium experience with minimal commitment while we continue to refine our offering.
As we approach a paid service, some publishers may choose to remove games before the trial period ends. Ultimately, they maintain control over their content and decide whether the game you purchase includes streaming on GeForce NOW. Meanwhile, others will bring games back as they continue to realize GeForce NOW’s value (stay tuned for more on that).
As the transition period comes to completion, game removals should be few and far between, with new games added to GeForce NOW each week.
A Fresh Horizon
Countless developers and publishers are embracing the opportunity to expand the number of gamers who can play their games on GeForce NOW.
Look no further than the recent news that the most anticipated game of 2020, CD PROJEKT RED’s Cyberpunk 2077, will be available on GeForce NOW the day it’s released. That adds to the hundreds of great games currently instantly available, among them: 30 of the biggest, most played free-to-play games — including Fortnite from Epic Games, League of Legends from Riot, Warframe from Digital Extremes and World of Tanks from Wargaming.
And we have an additional 1,500 games in our onboarding queue, from publishers that share a vision of expanding PC gaming to more people.
The world’s largest gaming platform — PC gaming — continues to evolve. We’re looking forward to giving this power to even more players, and ushering in a new generation of PC gamers.
As gamers ourselves, nothing sounds better.
