Another week has rolled around and NVIDIA is back with another update to its continually growing GeForce Now service. 21 titles are being added to the catalog this week with the big story being the return of Square Enix. The popular publisher is back in GeForce Now with titles from franchises including Deus Ex, Just Cause and Tomb Raider.
Here's the full list of 14 that will become instantly available to anyone who owns them on Steam starting today:
- BATTALION 1944
- Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Director's Cut
- Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
- Just Cause 3
- Just Cause 4
- Life is Strange
- Life Is Strange 2
- Rise of the Tomb Raider
- Shadow of the Tomb Raider
- Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition
- Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance
- The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit
- Tomb Raider
Square Enix isn't the only story in this weeks additions, though. New release Hardspace: Shipbreaker is joining the ranks alongside titles from Hi-Rez and others. Here's the rest of this weeks new additions:
- Hardspace: Shipbreaker
- Automation - The Car Company Tycoon Game
- Paladins (Epic Games Store)
- Power of Seasons
- SAMURAI SHODOWN NEOGEO COLLECTION (Epic)
- Satisfactory (Epic)
- SMITE (Epic)
In addition to new games being added to the service, NVIDIA has a couple of other interesting nuggets of information to talk about this week. One is that the team is working with Epic Games to bring the Epic Vault weekly free titles to GeForce Now, with the current work-in-progress being The Escapists 2. Any progress made here will be pushed out alongside the weekly Thursday updates, so stay tuned to see which have made it in.
The newly launched NVIDIA Highlights feature is also being expanded to support Rocket League. Highlights uses cloud server smarts to track games and recognise "epic moments" then automatically capture them. And lets face it, what better title to try it on than Rocket League?
All of these games should be available on GeForce Now from 1pm Pacific today (4pm Eastern, 9pm UK).
NVIDIA's cloud game streaming service is one of the best available today, delivering lag-free gaming at 1080p/60fps. The fact that you can access NVIDIA's servers for free makes it an easy sell, and the $4.99 plan makes it an immediately enticing option for seasoned gamers.
