This week marks a very special edition of GFN Thursday. Why so special you may ask? Well, the onboarding of a further 13 games this week brings the total amount of games available on GFN to 1000! A remarkable milestone that is quite rightly being celebrated this week.
1000 games are available to stream instantly on your old PC’s, Macs, Chromebooks, Shield TV’s, Android and iOS devices.
NVIDIA has taken the opportunity in this week's blog post to shout out the developers, publishers and partners who opted in to stream their games on the service. Publishers like Riot Games, Bungie, Paradox Interactive, Epic Games, Ubisoft and many many more.
More than 300 partners have shown belief in cloud gaming by bringing their games to GeForce NOW and more are joining every week.
I can safely say that there is literally a game for everyone on GeForce NOW. Even before the 1000 milestone this week I have been saying the same.
The Witcher Trilogy
Life is Strange series
Shadow of the Tomb Raider
Dead by Daylight
Legends of Runterra
Slay the Spire
There are still another 979 games I haven’t mentioned so I think by now you have caught my drift.
