Nvidia’s Cloud Service Gains Epic Exclusive and Promises a New Game Every Week
It’s been a bumpy start for Nvidia’s nascent cloud gaming service. Shortly after GeForce Now went live things went south very quickly. Blizzard pulled all of its titles, followed shortly thereafter by Bethesda, 2K and Rockstar Games – a fail cascade that left things looking pretty bleak for Nvidia’s brand of cloud gaming.
However, thankfully, for Nvidia and those of us looking to play high-end games on small devices, there have been a few holdouts. Most notably, Epic Games. Nvidia announced Thursday that it is releasing Epic Games’ exclusive Control and will be rolling out a new title for its service every Thursday.
It’s not clear how Nvidia managed to leverage this deal. However, Epic Games’ CEO Tim Sweeney’s wholehearted public support for the service likely has something to do with it.
As outlined in Digital Trends, the number of titles lost to Geforce Now in the last few weeks is pretty staggering. And yet a slew of great gaming remains. In addition to Epic, a host of indie publishers and industry stalwarts have yet to pull their games. What’s more, a few like CD PROJEKT RED and Epic have been vocal about their support for Nvidia’s budding service. This recent development is enough to leave fans of the service pretty stoked about its future.
