What you need to know
- NVIDIA will support Cyberpunk 2077 on GeForce Now through Steam, Epic and GOG from launch.
- Pillars of Eternity also joins the fray this week.
- A partnership with The Game Awards will see Steam-hosted demos available to stream through GeForce Now.
As if this week wasn't filled with enough Cyberpunk 2077, NVIDIA has swooped in just before launch to confirm that the title will be available immediately on its cloud platform, GeForce Now. That means Night City can go wherever you go. The launch times are in line with the global PC availability, that is 00:00 GMT November 10, and whatever that corresponds to in your time zone.
Better still it doesn't matter if you bought the game on Steam, Epic or from GOG, you'll be able to link each to your GeForce Now account. And naturally, for GeForce Now Founders account holders, you'll be able to play Cyberpunk 2077 in all its RTX On ray traced glory. If your PC can't cut the mustard for it by itself, then this at least gives you an option to see just how spectacular it is.
Also coming to GeForce Now this week are a number of game demos in partnership with The Game Awards. These will all be from Steam, so assuming you go and claim them you'll be able to stream each to your devices. Check out the full list to see which takes your fancy.
There are also two other games being added to the GeForce Now catalog alongside Cyberpunk 2077 this week, both of which will be free on the Epic Games Store. First up is the epic RPG, Pillars of Eternity, alongside another RPG, Tyranny, both from the now Microsoft-owned Obsidian.
These two games will be free for a week starting on December 10, so be sure to add them to your Epic Games account to stream away on GeForce Now to your heart's content.
