GeForce NOW Adds 8 New Titles This Week, Crysis Remastered Free With Six-Month GeForce NOW Membership

by Rainier on Nov. 18, 2021 @ 6:00 a.m. PST

GeForce NOW taps into the thriving PC gaming ecosystem by streaming games from NVIDIA GPUs in the cloud, this week adding 8 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.

You’ve reached your weekly gaming checkpoint. Welcome to a positively packed GFN Thursday.

This week delivers a sweet deal for gamers ready to upgrade their PC gaming from the cloud. With any new, paid six-month Priority or GeForce NOW RTX 3080 subscription , members will receive Crysis Remastered for free for a limited time.

Gamers and music lovers alike can get hyped for an awesome entertainment experience playing Core this week and visiting the digital world of Oberhasli. There, they’ll enjoy the anticipated deadmau5 “Encore” concert and event.

And what kind of GFN Thursday would it be without new games? We’ve got eight new titles joining the GeForce NOW library this week.

GeForce NOW Can Run Crysis … And So Can You

But can it run Crysis? GeForce NOW sure can.

For a limited time, get a copy of Crysis Remastered free with select GeForce NOW memberships. Purchase a six-month Priority membership, or the new GeForce NOW RTX 3080 membership, and get a free redeemable code for Crysis Remastered on the Epic Games Store.

Current monthly Founders and Priority members are eligible by upgrading to a six-month membership. Founders, exclusively, can upgrade to a GeForce NOW RTX 3080 membership and receive 10 percent off the subscription price and no risk to their current Founders benefits. They can revert back to their original Founders plan and retain “Founders for Life” pricing, as long as they remain in consistent good standing on any paid membership plan.

This special bonus also applies to existing RTX 3080 members and preorders, as a thank you for being among the first to upgrade to the next generation in cloud gaming. Current members on the GeForce NOW RTX 3080 plan will receive game codes in the days ahead; while members who have preordered but haven’t been activated yet, will receive their game code when their GeForce NOW RTX 3080 service is activated. Please note, terms and conditions apply.

Stream Crytek’s classic first-person shooter, remastered with graphics optimized for a new generation of hardware and complete with stunning support for RTX ON and DLSS. GeForce NOW members can experience the first game in the Crysis series — or 1,000+ more games — across nearly all of their devices, turning even a Mac or a mobile device into the ultimate gaming rig.

Experience the deadmau5 Encore in Core

This GFN Thursday brings Core and deadmau5 to the cloud. From shooters, survival and action adventure to MMORPGs, platformers and party games, Core is a multiverse of exciting gaming entertainment with over 40,000 free-to-play, Unreal-powered games and worlds.

This week, members can visit the fully immersive digital world of Oberhasli — designed with the vision of the legendary producer, musician and DJ, deadmau5 — and enjoy an epic “Encore” concert and event. Catch the deadmau5 performance, with six showings running from Friday, Nov. 19, to Saturday, Nov. 20. The concert becomes available every hour, on the hour, the following week.

The fun continues with three games inspired by deadmau5’s music — Hop ‘Til You Drop, Mau5 Hau5 and Ballon Royale — set throughout 19 dystopian worlds featured in the official When The Summer Dies music video. Party on with exclusive deadmau5 skins, emotes and mounts, and interact with other fans while streaming the exclusive, interactive and must-experience deadmau5 performance celebrating the launch of Core on GeForce NOW with the “Encore” concert this week.
