This GFN Thursday brings in the highly anticipated magnum opus from SEGA and Amplitude Studios, HUMANKIND, as well as exciting rewards to redeem for members playing Eternal Return.
There’s also updates on the newest Fortnite Season 7 game mode, “Impostors,” streaming on GeForce NOW.
Plus, there are nine games in total coming to the cloud this week.
The Future is in Your Hands
It’s time to make history. The exciting new turn-based historical strategy game HUMANKIND released this week and is streaming on GeForce NOW.
In HUMANKIND, you’ll be rewriting the entire narrative of human history and combining cultures to create a civilization as unique as you are. Combine up to 60 historical cultures as you lead your people from the Ancient to the Modern Age. From humble origins as a Neolithic tribe, transition to the Ancient Era as the Babylonians, become the Classical era Mayans, the Medieval Umayyads, the Early Modern-era British, and so on. Create a custom leader from these backgrounds to pave the way to the future.
Players will encounter historical events and make impactful moral decisions to develop the world as they see fit. Explore the natural wonders, discover scientific breakthroughs and make remarkable creations to leave your mark on the world. Master tactical turn-based battles and command your assembled armies to victory against strangers and friends in multiplayer matches of up to eight players. For every discovery, every battle and every deed, players gain fame — and the player with the most fame wins the game.
An awesome extra, unlock unique characters based on popular content creators, like GeForce NOW streamer BurkeBlack, by watching their HUMANKIND streams for unique drops.
Gamers have been eagerly anticipating the release of HUMANKIND, and members will be able to experience this awesome new PC game when streaming on low-powered PCs, Macs, Chromebooks, SHIELD TVs or Android and iOS mobile devices with the power of GeForce NOW.
“GeForce NOW can invite even more players to experience the HUMANKIND journey,” said Romain de Waubert, studio head and chief creative officer at Amplitude Studios. “The service quickly and easily brings gamers into HUMANKIND with beautiful PC graphics on nearly any device.”
Tell your story your way. Play HUMANKIND this week on GeForce NOW and determine where you’ll take history.

Impostors Infiltrate Fortnite
Chapter 2 Season 7 of Fortnite also delivered a thrilling, new game mode. Members can play Fortnite “Impostors,” which recently was released on August 17.
Play in matches between four to 10 players of Agents versus Impostors on a brand new map – The Bridge. Agents win by completing minigame assignments to fill their progress bar or revealing all Impostors hiding among the team by calling discussions and voting out suspicious behavior.
While keeping their identity a secret, up to two Impostors will seek to eliminate enough Agents to overtake The Bridge. They can hide their status by completing assignments, which will benefit the progress of the Agent team, and have sneaky sabotage abilities to create chaos.
Whether playing as an Agent or as an Impostor, this game is set to be a great time. Stream it today on GeForce NOW.
