GeForce NOW Adds 6 New Titles This Week, Genshin Impact Next Week, App Update

by Rainier on June 16, 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.

Greetings, Traveler.

Prepare for adventure. Genshin Impact, the popular open-world action role-playing game, is leaving limited beta and launching for all GeForce NOW members next week.

Gamers can get their game on today with the six total games joining the GeForce NOW library.

As announced last week, Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is coming to the cloud at launch — with GeForce technology. This September, members will be able to leap thousands of years into the future to the time of the Space Marines, streaming on GeForce NOW with NVIDIA DLSS and more.

Plus, the 2.0.41 GeForce NOW app update brings a highly requested feature: in-stream copy-and-paste support from the clipboard while streaming from the PC and Mac apps — so there’s no need to enter a long, complex password for the digital store. Get to your games even faster with this new capability.

GeForce NOW is also giving mobile gamers more options by bringing the perks of RTX 3080 memberships and PC gaming at 120 frames per second to all devices with support for 120Hz phones. The capability is rolling out in the coming weeks.

Take a Trip to Teyvat

After the success of a limited beta and receiving great feedback from members, Genshin Impact is coming on June 23, 2022 to everyone streaming on GeForce NOW.

Embark on a journey as a traveler from another world, stranded in the fantastic land of Teyvat. Search for your missing sibling in a vast continent made up of seven nations. Master the art of elemental combat and build a dream team of over 40 uniquely skilled playable characters – like the newest additions of Yelan and Kuki Shinobu – each with their own rich stories, personalities and combat styles.

Experience the immersive campaign, dive deep into rich quests alongside iconic characters and complete daily challenges. Charge head-on into battles solo or invite friends to join the adventures. The world is constantly expanding, so bring it wherever you go across devices, streaming soon to underpowered PCs, Macs and Chromebooks on GeForce NOW.

“The Genshin Impact beta on GeForce NOW showed us the potential of making an immersive gaming experience within reach to many more gamers,” said Wenyi Jin, Vice President of Globalization at HoYoverse. “We believe that GeForce NOW makes it possible for both existing fans to expand where and how they play, and for new players to start with more options.”

Genshin Impact is a fantastic game that’s wildly popular around the globe,” said Phil Eisler, vice president and general manager of GeForce NOW at NVIDIA. “We look forward to its official launch on GeForce NOW next week, which will give millions of Genshin fans and new players an opportunity to play the full PC version on more of their devices.”

RTX 3080 members can level up their gaming for the best experience by streaming in 4K resolution and 60 frames per second on the PC and Mac apps.

Let the Gaming Commence

All of the action this GFN Thursday kicks off with six new games arriving on the cloud. Members can also gear up for Rainbow Six Siege Year 7 Season 2.

Members can look for the following streaming this week:

Finally, members still have a chance to stream the PC Building Simulator 2 open beta before it ends on Monday, June 20. Experience deeper simulation, an upgraded career mode and powerful new customization features to bring your ultimate PC to life.
