GeForce NOW News: New GFN Rewards Upcoming, Swords of Legends Online Amongst 10 New Games This Week.

This week’s GeForce Now Thursday blog is heavily focused on multiplayer games. 3 of the 10 games being onboarded this week are as such and we also have 3 day and date releases as well, one of which is the new highly anticipated action MMORPG Swords of Legends Online.



The blog kicks off this week reiterating that playing on GeForce Now means playing the real PC versions of games from Steam, Epic Games, Ubisoft Connect and GOG and that low-powered rigs are no longer a problem.


We then get a reminder that we aren’t just playing with other GFN members but the millions of PC gamers out there whether we are on low-end PC’s, Mac’s, Chromebook’s, Shield TV’s, Android or iOS devices.


It’s a great reminder of how massive the community actually is and how easy it is to pick up and play no matter where and no matter which device.


Continuing on this subject, simply searching “multiplayer” in-app brings up over 400 games for you to choose from. A good number of these games are completely free to play as well like CS: GO, Fortnite, Destiny 2, World of Tanks and many more.


Multiplayer is a big deal for many gamers, it’s just how it is these days and it’s great to see NVIDIA take the opportunity to highlight this in their weekly blog post.
