GeForce NOW Adds Genshin Impact v3.1 Update, 9 New Titles This Week

by Rainier on Sept. 29, 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 Genshin Impact's latest v3.1 content update and an additional 9 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.

Get the Party Started in ‘Genshin Impact’

Genshin Impact Version 3.1, “King Deshret and the Three Magi,” has arrived in time for the game’s second anniversary. The latest update introduces the massive desert area, new characters, events, gifts and more — and it’s the perfect time for new players to start their adventure, streaming on GeForce NOW.

Step into the starkly beautiful desert to uncover the legends of King Deshret and clues to the past buried in the sand. In addition, three Sumeru characters, Candace, Cyno and Nilou, join the playable cast. Far beyond the sweltering sands, celebrations for Mondstadt’s Weinlesefest are arriving as the crisp autumn wind blows, delivering more events with “Wind Chaser” and “Star-Seeker’s Sojourn,”
mini-games, and rich rewards.

Members who’ve opted in to GeForce NOW’s Rewards program will receive an email for a Genshin Impact starter kit that can be claimed through the NVIDIA Rewards redemption portal. The kit will become available in game once players reach Adventure Rank 10.

The reward includes 30,000 Mora to purchase various items, three “Mystic Enhancement Ores” to enhance weapons and three “Hero’s Wit” points to level up characters.

Haven’t opted in for members’ rewards yet? Log in to your NVIDIA account and select “GEFORCE NOW” from the header, then scroll down to “REWARDS” and click the “UPDATE REWARDS SETTINGS” button. Check the box in the dialogue window that shows up to start receiving special offers and in-game

Better hurry — these rewards are available for a limited time on a first-come, first-serve basis. To get first dibs, upgrade to a GeForce NOW Priority or RTX 3080 membership to receive rewards before anyone else.
