by GeForce NOW Community

Some weeks, GFN Thursday reveals new or unique features. Other weeks, it’s a cool reward. And every week, it offers its members new games.

This week, it’s all of the above.

First, Saints Row marches into GeForce NOW. Be your own boss in the new reboot of the classic open-world criminal adventure series, now available to stream from nearly any device.

Plus, members asked, and we listened: Genshin Impact is now streaming to iOS, iPadOS and Android mobile devices with touch controls. It’s part of the big Genshin Impact Version 3.0 update, adding a brand-new nation, characters and more.

But that’s not all. Guild Wars 2 comes to Steam, and GeForce NOW members can celebrate with a free in-game reward. Dragons, anyone?

And don’t forget about the 13 new games joining the GeForce NOW library, because the action never stops.

It’s Good to Be the King(pin)

Build a criminal empire and rise up from “Newbie” to “Boss” in Saints Row, streaming today for all GeForce NOW members.

The highly anticipated reboot of the Saints Row franchise follows the Saints, a group of three gang members turned friends who combine forces to take on three warring criminal gangs in the vibrant new city of Santo Ileso. Players can become whoever they want with the all-new “Boss Factory.” Customize characters, their weapons, vehicles and more in true Saints Row fashion.

And RTX 3080 members get the added benefits of ultra-low latency, higher streaming frame rates, maximized eight-hour sessions and dedicated RTX 3080 servers.

Travelers rejoice: Genshin Impact is now streaming to iOS, iPadOS and Android mobile devices with touch controls.

The launch of game developer HoYoverse’s free-to-play, open-world, action role-playing game on GeForce NOW has been hugely successful, and members can now continue their journeys with their PCs, Macs or Chromebooks.

Mobile touch controls for Genshin Impact are now available for all GeForce NOW members who prefer gaming on their phones and tablets or only have time to play on the go. Jump in to start playing at PC quality. No downloads or accessories needed – just fingers!

The timing for touch controls couldn’t be better, as HoYoverse just released Genshin Impact’s biggest update of the year, “The Morn a Thousand Roses Brings.” It adds Sumeru, the fourth of the game’s seven major nations, and Dendro, the last of the game’s seven-element system. A new nation to explore and Dendro playable characters to recruit for the first time ever — it’s all available to stream on GeForce NOW from nearly any device.
