GeForce NOW News: Guardians of the Galaxy Game & RTX 3080 Pre-Orders Open!

GeForce NOW News Thursday is back! This week we have Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy & Riders Republic amongst only 5 games being onboarded. GeForce NOW RTX 3080 Pre-Orders are now open to everyone and a short update comes for ELYON.




GFN Thursday Games



We’re diving headfirst into the games this week and we’ll begin with Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. This hugely anticipated title landed on October 26th and we have already been in about it. If you haven’t watched Marchief’s video yet go check that out. The game is action-packed, visually stunning with the addition of RTX and is coming in as a late game of the year contender based on the numerous positive reviews it’s getting. You can pick this one up and stream on GFN from both Steam and Epic for around £50.


Ubisoft’s massive multiplayer playground, Riders Republic, released today and is already available to stream. Bikes, skis, snowboards and wingsuits are at the ready for this crazy open-world sports paradise. If you took advantage of last week's free trial and enjoyed the game enough to purchase then you can pick it up from the Ubisoft store starting at £50 for the standard edition. Ubisoft + subscribers get this as part of your subscription, just remember to add it to your library on Ubisoft before launching on GFN.



Alan Wake Remastered offers the complete experience, with the main game and its two story expansions - The Signal and The Writer - with stunning upgraded visuals. The tense, episodic story is packed with unexpected twists, heart-stopping cliffhangers, and intense bursts of combat where it takes more than bullets to banish the darkness. You can pick this up from the Epic Games Store this week for £25.


Hide and Shriek is a one vs. one multiplayer romp played out in ten-minute matches. Your objective is simple: be a mischievous little rascal and scare your opponent half to death before time runs out. This free to play horror title comes to us from Steam this week.


Paradise Killer is our final game this week. You must gather evidence and interrogate suspects in this open-world investigation styled game. Overwhelmingly positive reviews on this one and yours for only £16 from Steam.



ELYON - Onboarding Process Still Ongoing



Quick update on ELYON which was announced last week as coming to the service but has yet to show up. The team is still working on the game but it is, unfortunately, taking longer than they would like so we have to sit tight and await its arrival.
