Nvidia’s shadow service GeForce Now has improved regularly since I reviewed all the major cloud services last year, and it now has one thing I’ve really wanted for ages: a really honest-to-good list of all the games backed up. That’s not all, as today’s update also adds 12 new games to the service, including a whole bunch of today’s best ray tracking games like Cyberpunk 2077, Control, and Metro Exodus. If you’ve ever wanted to see what all the radiation tracking equipment was all about, but did not have the necessary hardware, I reckon GeForce Now is finally a service worth paying for.
The complete list of supported games is easily one of the biggest improvements it has been to GeForce Now in the year since it came out of beta. You see, unlike other cloud services like Google Stadia where you have to pay for special cloud versions of a game, GeForce Now lets you play games you already own in your various game libraries. Not all games are supported by the service, but previously you had to go through the laborious process of searching for games individually, or syncing your Steam library with it to find out what you could actually play on it.
The Steam sync feature was a welcome step forward to make GeForce Now more user-friendly when it was introduced six months ago, but it was still not so good for Epic Games Store and UPlay libraries. The complete list now gives you a full overview in advance, so you can decide exactly whether it̵
You can still technically use GeForce Now for free, I should add, but you are limited to only hour-long game sessions and ‘standard access’ when joining a server. If you want to play for extended periods (up to six hours), have “priority access” to servers and the ability to take advantage of Nvidia’s RTX Beam Tracking Hardware, you must opt for the paid Founders Membership, which is currently reduced to £ 24.95 / $ 24.95 for six months (that’s just over £ 4 / $ 4 per month).
In fairness, it’s probably worth it now, it has some great radiation tracking games out there, as Cyberpunk 2077, Control, Watch Dogs Legion, Metro Exodus, Shadow Of The Tomb Raider and Deliver Us The Moon are all coming to GeForce Now today. You still need to own copies of these games on Steam or Epic Games Store, but if you have recently tried and have not secured an RTX 3060 Ti, RTX 3070 or RTX 3080, this is a great way to play these games with jet tracking turned on while you wait.
