Nvidia announced tonight at their CES keynote that they’re bringing their cloud-based gaming service, GeForce Now, to PCs. GeForce Now is a downloadable client that has built in computational power within the cloud, letting you stream some of the most intensive video game titles from almost any PC. The company is billing it as a way for people to access gaming PC power, that don’t actually have access to a gaming PC.
The CES keynote showed Nvidia running the client, and then booting up Steam to play Rise of the Tomb Raider. GeForce now will be available on PC in March for Early Access users, and will cost $25 for 20 hours of playtime. Nvidia president Jen-Hsun Huang said the service by saying, “It’s basically a GeForce gaming PC on demand.” Apparently there will also be several grades of performance that you can choose from, that will affect the amount of playtime hours you have per purchase.
Make sure to stay tuned for more details on GeForce Now as Nvidia shares more information. The keynote also gave us a new look at Mass Effect Andromeda gameplay, which was given a release date earlier today.
