Nvidia has announced an upgrade to their cloud gaming service, GeForce Now. Chrome and Edge users can now enjoy 1440p and 120 FPS gaming with GeForce Now, even on low-end PCs.

The cloud gaming service has been the word on the block for quite a while now, providing an easy solution to playing games without downloading, updating, or even having expensive hardware.

This newest upgrade is only available to the most expensive package of GeForce Now. Members of the RTX 3080 package will be able to take advantage of the high resolution and crisp FPS rate. The RTX 3080 membership is available for $20 a month.

The announcement on the official website came yesterday along with GFN Thursday. GeForce Now gets new games every week on Thursday, and with this announcement, Nvidia has also mentioned including six new games into the cloud gaming catalog.

It’s almost the end of August, and with September right around the corner, a new semester will begin for all students. Nvidia decided to use a back-to-school theme for the upgrade announcement, stating, “all work and no play isn’t the GeForce Now way.”

Following GFN Thursday on August 18, GeForce Now has included these six new games into their roster:

  • Thymesia (New release on Steam)
  • Century: Age of Ashes (Steam)
  • Clanfolk (Steam)
  • Coromon (Steam)
  • Hypercharge: Unboxed (Steam)
  • Phoenix Point (Epic Games Store)

GeForce Now boasts over 1300 games in its library and continues to grow every day. It’s also a serious question whether cloud gaming will replace the more conventional hardware-based gaming experience simply because of its affordability and accessibility.

According to a recent survey by Perforce, Cloud Streaming will be the dominant gaming platform by 2025. GeForce Now gets constant updates and improvements and looks like it will continue to impress.
