GeForce NOW Adds 8 New Titles This Week, Genshin Impact Coming, CES Recap

by Rainier on Jan. 6, 2022 @ 6:00 a.m. PST

GeForce NOW taps into the thriving PC gaming ecosystem by streaming games from NVIDIA GPUs in the cloud, this week adding 4 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.

This GFN Thursday comes with the news that Genshin Impact, the popular open-world action roleplaying game, will be coming to the cloud this year, arriving in a limited beta.

Plus, this year’s CES announcements were packed with news for GeForce NOW. Battlefield 4: Premium Edition and Battlefield V: Definitive Edition join the exhilarating collection of Electronic Arts titles streaming from the cloud. Plus, a GeForce NOW promotion is available for AT&T 5G customers, and GeForce NOW will be streaming on Samsung TVs later this year.

And, as always, for the first GFN Thursday of the month, we’ve got the list of new games joining the GeForce NOW library. In January, eight titles are joining the cloud, with two ready to start streaming this week.

Genshin Impact Coming to GeForce NOW

Get ready for an epic fantasy adventure, Traveler. Genshin Impact is coming to GeForce NOW in a limited beta for GeForce NOW users on Windows PCs. To learn if you have access to the beta, members with a miHoYo account can search for Genshin Impact in the GeForce NOW Windows app to see if the beta is available.

You are a traveler from another world, stranded in the mysterious and fantastic land of Teyvat. Embark on a journey to reunite with your lost sibling and explore the seven districts, each presided over by seven elemental gods known as the Archons.

Manipulate and master the various elements to defeat enemies and solve challenging puzzles. Meet the inhabitants of Teyvat and build up your party from over 40 playable characters — with more to come — each with unique abilities, stories, personalities and combat styles.

Experience an immersive campaign, charge head-on into battles solo or invite friends to join your adventures in a vast magical world.

GeForce NOW Announcements From CES

Members can now play Battlefield 4: Premium Edition to embrace unrivaled destruction and experience the ultimate war in Battlefield V: Definitive Edition, streaming from the cloud.

These new additions will join the existing EA catalog available to GeForce NOW members, which includes the massively popular, high-speed hero shooter Apex Legends, already streamed by more than 1 million members.

For the mobile gamer, AT&T and NVIDIA have joined forces as collaborators in 5G technical innovation to deliver one of the world’s best gaming experiences. To celebrate, a special promotion for certain AT&T 5G subscribers is ongoing.

Going from the small screen to the big screen, look for GeForce NOW to arrive on select Samsung TVs later this year.
