GeForce NOW Will Be Adding 25 Games In October, 6 New Titles This Week

by Rainier on Oct. 6, 2022 @ 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 6 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.

Cooler weather, the changing colors of the leaves, the needless addition of pumpkin spice to just about everything, and discount Halloween candy are just some things to look forward to in the fall.

GeForce NOW members can add one more thing to the list — 25 games joining the cloud gaming library in October, including day-and-date releases like A Plague Tale: Requiem, Victoria 3 and others.

Let’s start off the cooler months with the six games streaming on GeForce NOW today.

Arriving in October

There’s a heap of gaming goodness in store for GeForce NOW members this month.

A tale continues when A Plague Tale: Requiem releases Tuesday, Oct. 18, enhanced with ray-traced effects for RTX 3080 and Priority members.

After escaping their devastated homeland in the critically acclaimed A Plague Tale: Innocence, siblings Amicia and Hugo venture south of 14th-century France to new regions and vibrant cities. But when Hugo’s powers reawaken, death and destruction return in a flood of devouring rats. Forced to flee once more, the siblings place their hopes in a prophesied island that may hold the key to saving Hugo.

The new adventure begins soon — streaming to even Macs and mobile devices with the power of the cloud — so make sure to add the game to your wishlist to start playing when it’s released.
