To the Cloud and Beyond: New Activision and Blizzard Games, Day Passes and G-SYNC Technology Coming to GeForce NOW


GFN Thursday recaps the latest cloud announcements from CES 2024 - Day Pass memberships, Cloud G-SYNC technology, expanded NVIDIA Reflex support and more.

The new year brings new adventures to the cloud for members, including Diablo IV and Overwatch 2 from Blizzard, Exoprimal from Capcom, Honkai: Star Rail from HoYoverse and Pax Dei from Mainframe Industries.

Plus, no GFN Thursday is complete without new games. Get ready for ten new titles joining the cloud this week.

Cloud's-Eye View of CES CES 2024 has come to a close, and GeForce NOW members have a lot to look forward to.

Coming in February, day passes for Ultimate and Priority memberships will offer a new way for members to play at up to GeForce RTX 4080 quality for up to 24 hours. Ultimate Day Pass will be available for $7.99, and Priority Day Pass for $3.99, providing all the benefits of both memberships to gamers before they decide to commit to the better-value one-month or six-month memberships.

Nothing but a G-SYNC, baby. Cloud G-SYNC support will match the display refresh rate of variable refresh rate monitors and G-SYNC-compatible monitors to the streaming rate. Paired with new 60 and 120 frames per second streaming options for GeForce NOW Reflex mode, this makes cloud gaming experiences nearly indistinguishable from using a local PC.

Ultimate members will be able to turn their phones into portable gaming rigs with support for 1440p resolutions on compatible Android phones, as well as updated keyboard and mouse support connected through a USB hub. Thanks to the cloud, these smartphones are now capable of PC gaming at Ultimate quality.

The cloud's drifting into Japan. GeForce NOW will also soon expand to Japan, operating alongside GeForce NOW Alliance partner KDDI. This will enable gamers across the country to play their favorite PC games in the cloud with Ultimate performance. Learn more and sign up for notifications.

Here Comes the Blizzard

That's not all: GeForce NOW is bringing even more top titles to the cloud from celebrated publishers.

Following the recent release of Call of Duty, the latest games from top developer Blizzard Entertainment are coming soon to GeForce NOW. Members will be able to play the Steam versions of Diablo IV and Overwatch 2 on nearly any device with the power of a GeForce RTX 4080 rig in the cloud, with support for coming soon.

Someone check the weather in hell - seems pretty cold. Join the fight for sanctuary in Diablo IV. Fight the forces of hell while discovering countless abilities to master, legendary loot to gather and nightmarish dungeons full of evil enemies to vanquish. Explore a shared open world where players can form their own armies to take down World Bosses, or join the fray in player vs. player zones to test skills against others.

Team up and answer the call of heroes in Overwatch 2, a free-to-play shooter featuring 30+ epic heroes, each with game-changing abilities. Lead the charge, ambush enemies or aid allies as one of Overwatch's distinct heroes. Join the battle across dozens of futuristic maps inspired by real-world locations and master unique game modes in the always-on, ever-evolving live game.

Members can look forward to playing the Steam version of both games from the cloud, with support for the launcher coming soon.

The Astral Express is coming to GeForce NOW. Expanding the library of hit free-to-play titles for members, Honkai: Star Rail from miHoYo will soon join Genshin Impact in the cloud. The space-fantasy role-playing game is set in a diverse universe filled with wonder, adventure and thrills. Plus, members can experience all the latest updates without worrying about download times.

Mainframe Industries' Pax Dei is a highly anticipated social sandbox massively multiplayer online game inspired by legends of the medieval era. It's planned to release on GeForce NOW when it launches for PC.

Dinosaurs? Oh my. Capcom is working with NVIDIA to bring more of its hit titles to the cloud, including Exoprimal, an online, team-based action game that pits humanity's cutting-edge exosuit technology against history's most ferocious beasts: dinosaurs. Look forward to streaming it from the cloud starting Thursday, Jan. 18.

Get ready to play these titles and more at high performance coming soon. Ultimate members will be able to stream at up to 4K resolution and 120 fps with support for NVIDIA DLSS and Reflex technology, and experience the action even on low-powered devices.
