Nvidia GeForce Now was nothing short of a savior when global chip shortages made it a nightmare to upgrade your GPU as it gives you the power of an RTX 2080 straight from the cloud itself. Better yet, it uses your existing Steam, Epic Games Store, GOG, EA’s Origin, and Ubisoft Connect libraries, so you don’t have to worry about games suddenly leaving the platform when you’re halfway through.
Usually the Priority plan will set you back $49.99 USD / £44.99 GBP for six months up front, which is a small saving compared to the ten dollar per month package, but Nvidia is feeling extra generous at this point. During the GeForce Now sale, you can get six months of the cloud gaming service for the price of three, with the cost dropping to just $29.99 USD / £26.99 GBP until November 20.
If you’re not convinced of its value, there’s a free version you can try that limits you to entry-level hardware, hour-long sessions, and you may have to queue to use it. The Priority plan skips the queue completely with premium servers, six-hour sessions, and ray tracing at 1080p/60fps. You can even learn how to set up Nvidia GeForce Now on Steam Deck if you own Valve’s handheld gaming PC.
There are some caveats to the discount, as the deal is only available to “new members, free members, 1-month priority members, and users with an active promotion or gift card.” The cloud gaming service also relies on your connection speeds to maintain a smooth stream. Currently, over 1,400 are compatible with the service, with the latest including Victoria 3 and V Rising. You can view supported games here.
There’s no telling how Logitech and its cloud rival to Tencet will fare, but GeForce Now has long been a leader in the game streaming wars – even before Google packed up Stadia. Ultimately, if you like the Priority plan, consider upgrading to the Nvidia GeForce Now RTX 3080 plan, which comes with a higher frame rate, higher resolution, and longer sessions.
