PRESS RELEASE

GeForce NOW is officially moving to the next level, making PC gaming accessible to even more people. Today, GeForce NOW removes the waitlist and introduces memberships. 

GeForce NOW taps into the thriving PC gaming ecosystem by streaming games from world-class NVIDIA GPUs in the cloud. Once logged in, you’re accessing your libraries from many popular digital game stores. And since you’re playing actual PC games, you’re connecting to those communities, playing with your friends, and matchmaking with fellow PC gamers. Now you can play those games from nearly any PC, Mac, TV (with SHIELD) or Android mobile device. It’s like plugging a GeForce GPU into your device, upgrading your local hardware into a state-of-the-art GeForce gaming PC in the cloud.

GeForce NOW also comes with the benefits of cloud gaming. It’s the first gaming rig that you never have to worry about upgrading. Game updates, patches and Game Ready Driver downloads are handled for you, so you’re always just moments away from playing your favorite games.

GeForce NOW is an open platform, allowing users to “bring their own games” from the top stores. There are already hundreds of instantly playable games on GeForce NOW (discoverable by search), with more added every week. And for older games that might not be as popular as they once were, there’s another 1,000+ games that can be played using single-session installs.

The last decade has been spent building GeForce NOW to be the premier PC gaming experience in the cloud, fine tuning the experience during the beta for the past two years. Every millisecond of the process has been optimized to reduce latency while maintaining performance, to a point where it’s negligible for most gamers.

Membership Plans

GeForce NOW has two options for membership: Free and Founders

The Free plan gives members standard access to servers and one-hour sessions. The Founders plan gives members priority access to servers and six-hour sessions. It also gives members access to games with RTX ON.

  • The Founders plan comes with a 90-day free trial, followed by a monthly membership rate of just £4.99 for the next 12 months.
  • Members of both plans can reconnect to the service immediately after their session expires for unlimited sessions. And both plans support up to 1080p and 60fps streaming.

RTX ON

GeForce NOW also has taken ray tracing to the cloud. Founders members will have access to RTX ON games like Wolfenstein: Youngblood and Metro Exodus

Free members will be able to play these games; however, they will not be able to play with ray tracing enabled.
