GeForce NOW Adds 11 New Titles This Week

by Rainier on July 22, 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 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, brings in hordes of fun — and a whole lot of orcs. Orcs Must Die! 3, the newest title from the action-packed, orc-slaying series from Robot Entertainment, is joining the GeForce NOW library when it releases this week on Friday, July 23.  

In addition, 10 more games are coming to the service this week.

Orcs Must Die! 3 (Steam) challenges players to slice, burn, toss, zap, grind and give it all they’ve got to keep massive hordes of orcs at bay across the battlefield in an effort to secure the castle walls and victory. Battle with a buddy or slay your enemies solo against enormous orc armies with weapons and traps of your choice.

Players can experience all-new war scenarios that pit players against overwhelming legions of orcs. But don’t worry, players have an arsenal of magic, weapons and new War Machines: traps on an oversized scale that range from mega flip traps that launch orcs ragdolling off the castle walls to mega boom barrel launchers that unleash pyrotechnic glory.

Enjoy a new and exciting story set 20 years after the previous game with fresh characters. Play for glory in weekly challenges to see how long you can survive in Endless Mode to put your name on the leaderboard. Then, survive Scramble Mode and face off against evolving orcs with sinister surprises. Finally, take things a step further in the Drastic Steps campaign as the mayhem takes to the skies against flying orcs.

With Orcs Must Die! 3 releasing on Steam and joining the GeForce NOW library, more gamers than ever before can experience the thrill of stomping orcish hordes — regardless of their low-powered rigs.

“We love that our players can experience all of the action and all of the orcs on any GeForce NOW compatible device,” said Patrick Hudson, CEO at developer Robot Entertainment. “It’s great that players who may not have powerful devices can still play the real PC version of our game at orc-slaying power.”

Members can get ready to slay and play Orcs Must Die! 3 on GeForce NOW when it releases tomorrow, July 23.
