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 comes with the exciting release of the new battle royale Naraka: Bladepoint, as well as the Hello Neighbor franchise. They’re part of the 11 great games joining the GeForce NOW library this week. Plus, the newest Assassin’s Creed Valhalla DLC is heading to the cloud.

“It’s great that GeForce NOW can introduce gamers playing on low-powered hardware to the stunning world of Naraka,” said Ray Kuan, lead producer of Naraka: Bladepoint. “We love that more gamers will be able to enter the battlefield and enjoy the next generation of battle royale games in full PC glory across all of their devices.”

The combat battle royale Naraka: Bladepoint launches on Steam this Thursday, and will be streaming on GeForce NOW shortly after its release. Players can explore the vast, interactive world with a vertical design and experience unique gameplay powered by parkour and grappling hook movement. They can also learn to best use the brand-new resurrection system and unique character skills of a roster of characters with powerful abilities while enjoying a vast arsenal of melee and ranged weapons along with the thrill of clashing blades and arrows flying in the battlefield.

Gaming on GeForce NOW means having access to the real versions of PC games. So, when members stream Naraka: Bladepoint , they’re playing the full-featured PC version on any GeForce NOW compatible device — at GeForce-level performance, just like on any other gaming rig.

This week also includes the management tycoon game, City of Gangsters, the free-to-play online competitive battlefield game, Blood of Steel, and stealth horror game, Hello Neighbor along with its prequel, Hello Neighbor: Hide and Seek.

The complete list of games releasing this week is below.

Finally, members will be able to sack a famous city and play the glorious new Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: The Siege of Paris DLC, streaming on GeForce NOW this Thursday as well.
