GeForce NOW Adds Five New Titles This Week, GeForce Now RTX 3080 Membership Pre-Orders

by Rainier on Oct. 28, 2021 @ 6:00 a.m. PDT

GeForce NOW taps into the thriving PC gaming ecosystem by streaming games from NVIDIA GPUs in the cloud, this week adding 9 new titles to its library.

When you fire up your favorite game, you’re playing it instantly. That’s what it means to be Game Ready on GeForce NOW. The experience has been optimized for cloud gaming and includes Game Ready Driver performance improvements. NVIDIA manages the game updates and patches. And when a game supports RTX, you can play it on GeForce NOW with beautifully ray-traced graphics and DLSS 2.0.

The GeForce NOW library is ever-growing. In an effort to help spotlight the games that are coming to the service, we’re moving to a monthly cadence for announcing new instant access games. Games will continue to be released every week – with new game launches available day-and-date, and back catalog games released each Thursday – but our members, and your readers, will now be able to learn about what’s coming a little further in advance.

It’s another super GFN Thursday. Some may even call it heroic.

All gamers can now preorder the new GeForce NOW RTX 3080 membership to power up their gaming experience with the next generation of cloud gaming.

This week also brings the release of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, streaming with support for RTX ON for Founders and Priority members — and soon, RTX 3080 members — as well as the launch of Riders Republic.

On top of that, Alan Wake Remastered comes to the cloud — part of the five new additions to the GeForce NOW library.

GeForce NOW RTX 3080 Pre-Order Available For All

The next generation of cloud gaming is almost here. Today, all gamers can preorder the new GeForce NOW RTX 3080 membership.

Founders and Priority members still have access to the preorder. Founders, exclusively, receive 10 percent off the subscription price and can upgrade with no risk to their benefits. They can also revert back to their original Founders plan and retain “Founders for Life” pricing, as long as they remain in good standing on any paid membership plan.

The new memberships will stream from the world’s most powerful gaming supercomputer, the GeForce NOW SuperPOD, giving gamers their own high-performance cloud gaming rig. GeForce NOW RTX 3080 members will enjoy streaming at up to 1440p resolution and 120 frames per second on PCs and Macs, and 4K HDR at 60 FPS on SHIELD TV, with ultra-low latency that rivals many local gaming experiences.

Six-month memberships are available for $99.99 and are limited — sign up today. Preorders will only be charged when the GeForce NOW RTX 3080 membership becomes available.

Preorders will begin converting to active memberships in November in North America, and December in Western Europe.

The Guardians of the Galaxy Have Arrived

Time to show the universe what you’re made of. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is streaming on GeForce NOW, with support for RTX ON for Founders and Priority members.

Turn your favorite mixtape up to 11 and fire up Star-Lord’s jet boots for a wild ride across the cosmos in this third-person action-adventure game, a fresh take on Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Original and iconic Marvel characters are caught in a struggle for the fate of the universe. With the unpredictable Guardians at your side, blast your way from one explosive situation to another. You got this. Probably.
