Square Enix and Nvidia has found an agreement that will see, some of the best PC games from the publisher returning to the streaming service, GeForce Now.
The positive news was shared during yesterday’s Thursday Update, NVIDIA confirmed the now supported titles on the streaming service. Deus Ex, Tomb Raider, Just Cause, Life is Strange are some of the titles that are now available for subscribers.
As we take GeForce NOW to the next step in its evolution, we’ve worked with publishers to onboard a robust catalog of your PC games. This means continually adding new games, and on occasion, having to remove games – similar to other digital service providers.
However, it seems that NVIDIA’s focus on an ‘Open Platform’ is the deal breaker for most publishers, the company’s approach is to allow players who has purchased a game on Steam or Epic Games Store will be available to keep playing the game via GeForce NOW.
“If you buy it, you own it. If you already own it, play it. Your purchases are always yours.” … “In total, there are hundreds of games from more than 50 publishers that, once you own, are available for instant play. All these games are patched automatically in the cloud, so your library is always game ready.”
NVIDIA still counts with the support of some heavyweights in the industry as, Epic Games and Ubisoft has expressed their support to the new streaming platform . Tim Sweeney stated via Twitter that his company “is wholeheartedly supporting NVIDIA’s GeForce NOW”
“Ubisoft fully supports NVIDIA’s GeForce NOW with complete access to our PC games from the Ubisoft Store or any supported game stores,” said Chris Early, senior vice president partnerships at Ubisoft. “We believe it’s a leading-edge service that gives current and new PC players a high-end experience with more choice in how and where they play their favorite games.”
Epic Games will now work closely with NVIDIA and make agreements to bring Epic’s catalog to the new streaming service.
