Excellent! I've been looking forward to this for a long time. A good offer for the founders as well!

What is GeForce Now?
It's a newly released game streaming service made by Nvidia, which allows you to play games on various devices without having to worry about being sat at your gaming PC/Laptop

Which Games Can I Play via GeForce Now?
You can play your supported games from Steam, Uplay, the Epic Games Store etc... This includes free to play titles that you may want to play. GeFroce Now supports around 400 games at this moment in time. You can check out what is supported using This Link


Do I have to pay for my games again?
Nope, not at all. Currently Nvidia aren't selling games at all, so if you own it and it's supported there are no additional fees to worry about.



What's the quality like?
The service maxes out at 1080p / 60Hz which is good going considering the other options out there. If your network isn't up for the task, you can edit your streaming quality settings and get things working more smoothly. It's a good idea to use the free trial to see what kind of performance you're geting before you for out extra for a founders membership.

Will my internet / Device be good enough to play?
"INTERNET REQUIREMENTS - GeForce NOW requires at least 15Mbps for 720p at 60fps and 25 Mbps for 1080p at 60fps.
You’ll need to use a hardwired Ethernet connection or 5GHz wireless router.

See HERE for requirements for various devices



Which devices does GeForce Now Allow me to play on?
25946.jpg
For those that want to get the Android app right away, you can do so by clicking HERE
More info on downloads HERE



How do I add my games?
I'll give an example on how to add Steam. All you need to do, is download the GeForce Now App > Log In > use the search Bar and look for "Steam"

You'll see this
25946.jpg
Click "+Library" and go through the verification process. If ou have Steam Guard on, you may have to jump through a few hoops to get it set up, but it's really simple. As it's going to add as a New Computer, make sure you have access to the Steam App on your phone and your Emails. It will make it that little bit quicker.

Once that's done, it's done... So you should have to do all that over and over again

What If I can't find the client that my games are on, but I know it works on GeForce Now?
Simply search for a game you know is on that platform, start it and it will ask you to log in.



Example: If Origin Doesn't show - Search "Apex Legends" > Start it and you'll be prompted to sign in

No, this is for games you already own. You search for a game to play, then it asks you to log in to the store you own that game on.

Here's the text detailing session lenghts ^

Basically on standard you get an hour of playtime before being booted to the back of the queue.

On Premium i.e founders, you get booted after 6 hours but skip the queue ahead of standard users.
Just played a bit of The Division 2 on my laptop, from my Uplay account. All good, really smooth. No problems connecting. The laptop didn't break a sweat. Looking forward to trying it on my phone and Android tablet
Had a quick blast of Destiny 2 on this and xCloud... both struggled with my setup (which I was unhappy about, Samsung S10 on 5Ghz wifi), but xCloud clearly came out on top - visuals just looked better in my opinion. Still, £5 per month isn't too bad, and a free trial is great to give it a try. Stadia who?

This tech will take off one day.

Until then I'll happily stick to my high fps. I imagine this would be capped to 60fps.
Been using this to play wreckfast on shield and have to say love it, will pay the monthly just to get the extra time on games

Just checked and this new plan applies.

Free for the limited 1 hour gameplay or upgrade for 6 hour.

I bought this to use with my phone & Xbox controller, but I've been finding the screen a bit too small.

Moga Mobile Gaming Clip for Xbox... amazon.co.uk/dp/…are

I've had a much better experience using a 10" tablet (Samsung 4 - Bluetooth to Xbox One controller and headphones).

Can also confirm the 2019 FireHD 10 tablet works brilliantly (side-load via GApps).

Seems more sensible than Stadia, have to pay for the subscription and buy the games on top. With this at least you can shop around, play the games you already own and keep them if you no longer want to keep a streaming subscription.
Can’t find any mention of an iOS app, sadly. Looks good!
Can you only play owned games now or are there still free games to play like there was on the shield beta?

Yes. But you get the “benefits” of playing on server hardware, with all the bells and whistles turned on, without shelling out the ridiculous £1k+ for the GPU alone.

it works amazingly well, I’ve had it free thru the nvidia shield tv box for years and it’s great. I do mostly use the shield to stream games from my own pc upstairs to the big telly, but the performance is indistinguishable from sitting in front of the pc, and the GeForce Now (this online version) is equally as good.
How do I know what games I own, I can play on geforce now?

I'm going to have to try this again because when I tried about 12 months ago there was noticeable input lag, even when I used a hardwired controller....take it you dont find any?
your hiring a GPU you dont own and streaming it to your monitor what can possibly go wrong. oh wait.. latency.

Didn’t notice lag at all, I’ve just played a bit of Dead Cells (had to turn off vsync in game to smooth that out) and then gave Borderlands 3 a try, both worked great.

my connection is pretty solid tho, the network test gave 0 jitter and 8ms ping. You might have issues if your internet isn’t decent.

(edit; using a 360 controller wirelessly on my nVidia Shield)

I wouldn’t play a competitive pvp shooter on it, but for most games it’s unnoticeable.
Quality still seems decent too, I just put Borderlands 3 to 1080p (max) at 125% render, everything to Ultra, and it was holding > 70 FPS.
Well I had the beta for all of a week then But I played Rainbow 6 Siege (online) and had a positive experience.

The only thing I'm wary of is game removals/additions, which slightly puts me off spending too much on a game just to play on the service, but I'm sure that'll settle down some.

Not really true.. Gfn have just taken down access to a handful of games including all the PES titles, which is really annoying when you've purchased them to play on here. I'd be wary in future of buying games just to play on here, as there's no guarantee they'll always work. Also, there's no Fifa nor any soccer games, nor any of the latest sports sims for 2020
Just tried it earlier today, had some issue where the screen would screen would shrink to about a quarter of the size of the monitor, don’t know if anyone has had that issue yet

Try Destiny 2 on Stadia after youve enabled Cross save.

Been a Ps4 destiny player for years, and the stadia experience is better by a country mile.
I've been using GeForce Now on my shield TV for ages for free will it stay that way for shield ownersor will we need to pay monthly too now??
Been using gforce now for ages on a pc i got from itzoo! Works really well. So signed up to the trial. Quality deal compared to the likes of shadow or stadia

On my Shield there’s still a handful of games listed as “included with GeForce Now” and I can play these without owning them. Not sure if it applied to normal non-Shield Now though.

If you’ve linked your Steam account to your PS4 account for Destiny, then there’s no reason Stadia would be any better or worse. They both rely on your stable internet connection, and I think most people don’t realise this is where your experience will suffer.
Even with a top notch broadband (I’m on a fairly middling fibre at 200/40) you need to keep your connection clear, you can’t go simultaneously watching Netflix while trying this, unless you’ve got some mad router that will prioritise the game streaming packets.
wifi will always be inherently iffy streaming high priority packets that are heavily time sensitive. Personally I don’t think even 5Ghz tech is ready for this kind of application, and I would always use Ethernet.

A GPU costing less than £150 will get you playing 1080p out in many games these days. The rest of the PC will still cost a bit more than a console tho.
Had the Beta of this for well over a year. Only tried it twice and was a stutter mess, even via LAN. Assume it took this long to sort it out. You probably need a decent WiFi signal.
Still, this is good for people without a decent gaming PC (don’t you still need an Nvidia GPU though ?) and you get the extra benefits of the massive back catalogue and cheap deals on games.
If you do have a gaming PC there are options to stream those sprouts the house. One option is to get a cheap Android box and use the free Steam Link App. You still need decent WiFi tho.

You also have the convenience of not having to download the game before playing. I'm assuming you could buy a featured Steam game, play it instantly on Geforce-Now and then request a refund if you decide you don't like it within 2hrs game time.
I've found that forcing your device to connect on 5Ghz to the Wifi helps the stream quality considerably.

True, I assume you can do that, and that would certainly be good, but better check some T&Cs somewhere. Don’t know if it would be in Steam T&Cs or Nvidia.
