Nvidia confirms GeForce NOW price hike outside of the US

Nvidia’s increasing their GeForce Now pricing in Canada and Europe

Nvidia has confirmed that they are increasing the price of their GeForce NOW (GFN) cloud gaming subscription service next month in Canada and Europe. This pricing change will come into force on November 1st, though existing subscribers will not see their subscription costs change for an additional three months.

While GeForce Now will retain its free tier, its 1-hour maximum session length limits its usefulness. This tier unable to support long gaming sessions, which is a problem for would-be free users. Nvidia’s free tier is a great tier for demoing Nvidia’s GFN cloud gaming service. It’s not a great option for proper gaming sessions.

No new perks are coming to Nvidia’s GeForce Now service with this new set of pricing increases. Higher operational costs in Europe and Canada have been listed as the reasons behind Nvidia’s planned price increases.

GeForce Now Tiers and pricing

In the UK, Nvidia’s GeForce Now Priority Tier will see its month/6-month pricing increase from £8.99/£44.99 to £9.99/£49.99. This tier gives gamers priority access to Nvidia’s cloud gaming servers. It also gives gamers access to a “Premium Rig” with RTX support and 60 FPS game streaming. Priority tier supports 1080p streams and 6-hour long gaming sessions.

For Nvidia’s Ultimate GFN subscription, UK prices are increasing from £17.99/£89.99 for 1-month/6-month subscriptions to £19.99/£99.99. This tier supports 8-hour gaming sessions, 4K game streaming, 120 FPS streams, and an RTX 4080 powered rig.

Nvidia’s new GeForce Now Ultimate and Priority prices are below. These prices are coming into effect on November 1st.

(Nvidia’s Planned GFN Prices)

In recent months, Nvidia has added support for Microsoft’s Game Pass platform to GeForce Now. This change is allowing PC gamers to access their Game Pass libraries though Nvidia’s GFN cloud gaming service.
