Nvidia partners with EA to bring several hits to Geforce Now

Nvidia has just announced that they have been working with Electronic Arts (EA) to add many of their most popular titles to their Geforce Now streaming service. This week, Nvidia has added support for games like Battlefield 1 Revolution, Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, Unravel Two, Dragon Age: Inquisition and Apex Legends to their platform. Moving forward, more EA titles are expected to arrive on Geforce Now. 

Nvidia’s Geforce Now service allows gamers to access a gaming PC on the cloud. With Geforce Now, PC gamers can access the game they own and many popular free-to-play titles through Steam, the Epic Games Store, Ubisoft Connect and EA Origin. Through Geforce Now, PC gamers can access Nvidia RTX series graphics, offering gamers access to DLSS and ray tracing in the latest PC games. That said, Nvidia needs permission from game publishers to support their titles on Geforce Now, so not all games on Steam etc, can be played using the service. 

Every Thursday, Nvidia adds new games to their Geforce Now service. Alongside this week’s addition of multiple EA titles, games like Europa Universalist IV, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist, and more have been added to Geforce Now. A full list of new Geforce Now games is available below. 

Nvidia has also confirmed that they have enlisted the help of new Geforce Now Alliance partners in Australia, Singapore, Brazil and select “other South American countries” (Thanks for being specific Nvidia…). Geforce Alliance partners will host Nvidia’s Geforce Now servers to allow Geforce Now to become available in more countries, opening up Nvidia’s subscription services to more gamers. 

Below is Nvidia’s latest Geforce Now Press Release. 
   

PR – GFN Thursday Really Heats Up as Electronic Arts Headlines Streaming Releases This Week

NVIDIA today announced that Electronic Arts is bringing more of its hit games to the NVIDIA GeForce NOW cloud gaming service, beginning with Battlefield 1 Revolution, Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, Unravel Two, Dragon Age: Inquisition and Apex Legends. GeForce NOW membership has more than doubled in the last year, giving Electronic Arts access to more than 12 million gamers. Collectively, over 20 million hours of gameplay are streamed each month via GeForce NOW, from 30 data centers in more than 70 countries.

GeForce NOW allows Electronic Arts games to be played with legendary GeForce performance by gamers who may not have a gaming PC— that includes more than 1 billion underpowered PCs and incompatible devices, like phones, tablets and Chromebooks. Nearly 80 percent of the devices that currently access GeForce NOW would not otherwise be capable of playing the latest PC games.

GeForce NOW is connected to the most popular game stores — including Steam and Epic Games Store — a win-win for developers and gamers. No additional development work or porting is required of developers, while gamers get access to hit titles from their library without having to purchase the games again, or having to deal with hefty downloads, patches and updates. Electronic Arts games can be added quickly to GeForce NOW through regular “GFN Thursday” releases.

Stream It Now

Five games from some of Electronic Arts’ most popular franchises are available on GeForce NOW, starting today. Members can stream Battlefield 1 Revolution to experience immersive untold stories of World War I; become a heroic leader and restore order against agents of chaos in Dragon Age: Inquisition; solve puzzles with the family-friendly Unravel Two; or dive into a fast-paced, free-running adventure with Mirror’s Edge Catalyst.

These additions from Electronic Arts join one of the most-played games on GeForce NOW, Apex Legends. The high-speed hero shooter has already been streamed by more than 1 million members.
