NVIDIA GeForce Now Thursday spotlights 12 new releases

Team Green continues their 1-year anniversary celebration of its streaming service with new releases and a showcase of the best games already on the platform.


While it certainly didn’t garner the same amount of attention as Sony’s PlayStation Now or Google’s Stadia services, NVIDIA’s GeForce Now continues to truck along with expanding content. Unlike Google’s Stadia, GeForce Now might still be a thing a year from now and NVIDIA has been celebrating its 1-year anniversary of the streaming service in a series of blog posts known as GFN Thursdays. This week’s edition highlights some of the best games on the service as well as twelve new titles that will be enabled for use via NVIDIA’s servers.

The twelve new games are listed as follows:

  • CRSED: F.O.A.D. [Epic Games Store]
  • Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls
  • Everspace
  • Farm Manager 2018
  • Farmer's Dynasty
  • Fate Seeker
  • Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris
  • Legend of Heroes in the Sky: Trials of Cold Steel III
  • Metro: Last Light Redux – available free on Epic Games Store until Thursday, February 11
  • South Park: The Fractured But Whole
  • Stay Out
  • Thea 2: The Shattering

GFN Thursday is also throwing some shine on six games already on the service that make use of RTX technology for more lifelike visuals thanks to ray tracing. These games can be played on a wide range of devices, including mobile phones, without the need for a beefy PC. 

  • A landmark PC game, Cyberpunk 2077 presents the vibrant future metropolis of Night City with the power of RTX. Tech inside: ray-traced reflections, ambient occlusion, shadows, diffuse illumination, global illumination, and DLSS.
  • Control, a former Game of the Year winner, is another landmark title for ray tracing. Explore other dimensions within the mysterious “Oldest House” with RTX. Tech inside: ray-traced reflections, contact shadows, indirect diffuse lighting, and DLSS.

  • A multiple Game of the Year nominee, Metro Exodus immerses gamers in a stark and frightening post-apocalyptic world, brought to life in stunning realism. Tech inside: ray-traced ambient occlusion, diffuse global illumination, emissive lighting, and DLSS.
