The Bell Tolls for All

Resident Evil Village on GeForce NOW
The cloud — big enough, even, for Lady Dimitrescu and her towering castle.

Resident Evil Village, the follow-up to Capcom’s critically acclaimed Resident Evil 7 Biohazard, delivers a gripping blend of survival-horror and action. Step into the shoes of Ethan Winters, a desperate father determined to rescue his kidnapped daughter.

Set against a backdrop of a chilling European village teeming with mutant creatures, the game includes a captivating cast of characters, including the enigmatic Lady Dimitrescu, who haunts the dimly lit halls of her grand castle. Fend off hordes of enemies, such as lycanthropic villagers and grotesque abominations.

Experience classic survival-horror tactics — such as resource management and exploration — mixed with action featuring intense combat and higher enemy counts.

Ultimate and Priority members can experience the horrors of this dark and twisted world in gruesome, mesmerizing detail with support for ray tracing and high dynamic range (HDR) for the most lifelike shadows and sharp visual fidelity when navigating every eerie hallway. Members can stream it all seamlessly from NVIDIA GeForce RTX-powered servers in the cloud and get a taste of the chills with the Resident Evil Village demo before taking on the towering Lady Dimitrescu in the full game.

I Can See Clearly Now

The latest GeForce NOW app update — version 2.0.64 — adds support for 10-bit color precision. Available for Ultimate members, this feature enhances image quality when streaming on Windows, macOS and NVIDIA SHIELD TV.

Rolling out now.

10-bit color precision significantly improves the accuracy and richness of color gradients during streaming. Members will especially notice its effects in scenes with detailed color transitions, such as for vibrant skies, dimly lit interiors, and various loading screens and menus. It’s useful for non-HDR displays and non-HDR-supported games. Find the setting in the GeForce NOW app > Streaming Quality > Color Precision, with the recommended default value of 10-bit.

Try it out on the neon-lit streets of Cyberpunk 2077 for smoother color transitions, and traverse the diverse landscapes of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and other games for a more immersive streaming experience.

The update, rolling out now, also brings bug fixes and new ways to curate a member’s in-app game library. For more information, visit the NVIDIA Knowledgebase.
