GeForce NOW Adds 15 New Titles, Spellbreak Rewards

by Rainier on April 15, 2021 @ 7:04 p.m. PDT

GeForce NOW taps into the thriving PC gaming ecosystem by streaming games from NVIDIA GPUs in the cloud, this week adding 11 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.

This GFN Thursday is especially rewarding for GeForce NOW members with 15 games being added to the service, alongside new game content — including RTX and DLSS support – plus an exclusive GeForce NOW Reward.

Bring on the Rewards

One of the benefits of being a GeForce NOW member is gaining access to exclusive rewards, from free games to in-game content, discounts and more.

This week, members will have the opportunity to unlock the rare Noble Oasis outfit from the game Spellbreak

Spellbreak Chapter 2: The Fracture is streaming on GeForce NOW. This massive update, released just last week, includes Dominion, the new 5 vs 5 team capture-point game mode. It also introduced Leagues, the new competitive ranking mode where players work their way up through Bronze, Silver and all the way to Legend. There were new map updates and gameplay changes as well, making it their biggest update yet.

Founders members will have first crack at the reward, starting today. It’s another benefit to thank you for gaming with us. Priority members are next in line and can look for their opportunity to redeem starting on Friday, April 16. Free members gain access on Tuesday, April 20.

It’s first come, first served, so be sure to redeem your reward as soon as you have access!

The Spellbreak in-game reward is the latest benefit for GeForce NOW members; others have included rewards for Discord, ARK: Survival Evolved, Hyperscape, Warface, Warframe and more.

Signing up for GeForce NOW Rewards is simple. Log in to your NVIDIA GeForce NOW account, click “Update Rewards Settings” and check the box.

Updates to Your Catalog

GeForce NOW members are getting updates to a few games this week in the form of new expansions or RTX support.

Path of Exile, the free-to-play, online, action RPG is getting an expansion in Path of Exile: Ultimatum. It contains the Ultimatum challenge league, eight new Skill and Support Gems, improvements to Vaal Skills, an overhaul to past league reward systems, dozens of new items, and much more.

Meanwhile, three games are adding RTX support with real-time, ray-traced graphics and/or NVIDIA DLSS. Mortal Shell gets the full complement of RTX support, while Medieval Dynasty and Observer System Redux get DLSS support to improve image quality while maintaining framerate.

Of course, GFN Thursday has even more games in store for members. This week we welcomed Nigate Tale, day-and-date with its Steam release on Tuesday. It’s currently available for 15 percent off through April 18. Members can also look for 14 additional games to join our library.
