GeForce NOW on SHIELD TV is being updated for a more consistent experience across Android and TV devices. Update 6.00 has begun rolling out to SHIELD TV owners this week.

Teamwork Makes the Dream Work

GeForce NOW and Microsoft

Last month, we announced a partnership with Microsoft to bring Xbox Game Studios PC games to the GeForce NOW library, including titles from Bethesda, Mojang Studios and Activision, pending closure of Microsoft’s acquisition. It’s a shared commitment to giving gamers more choice and enabling PC gamers to play their favorite games anywhere.

Since then the teams at both companies have been collaborating on delivering a best-in-class cloud gaming experience that PC gamers have come to expect, delivering a seamless experience across any device, whether playing locally or in the cloud.

We’re making progress, and in future GFN Thursdays we will provide an update on onboarding of individual titles from Microsoft’s incredibly rich catalog of first-party PC games. Stay tuned to GFN Thursday updates for the latest.

Medieval Marvel

Starting today, Premium GeForce NOW members can claim their marvel-ous new reward. Marvel’s Midnight Suns, the tactical role-playing game from the creators of XCOM, has been praised for its immersive game play and cutting-edge visuals with support for DLSS 3 technology on top of RTX-powered ray tracing.

With the game’s first downloadable content, called The Good, The Bad, and The Undead, fans were thrilled to welcome Deadpool to the roster. This week, members can get their free reward to secure Captain Marvel’s Medieval Marvel suit.

Ultimate and Priority members can visit the GeForce NOW Rewards portal today and update the settings to start receiving special offers and in-game goodies. Better hurry, as this reward is available on a first-come, first-served basis only through Saturday, May 6.
