Nvidia and CD Projekt Red have partnered to bring the upcoming RPG Cyberpunk 2077 to GeForce Now at launch. Subscribers to Nvidia’s cloud streaming service will be able to download a Steam version of the game the day it is released.
Today’s announcement comes by way of an official staff post over on Nvidia’s forums, which reads:
Hi everyone, happy to share some exciting news: Cyberpunk 2077 will be available on GeForce NOW the day it’s released. GeForce NOW members will be able to grab their copy on Steam and play the game the moment it’s available.
GeForce NOW Founders members can explore the streets of Night City with RTX ON, fully optimized and instantly available, even on your Mac laptop. We’re thrilled to work with CD PROJEKT RED to bring its eagerly-anticipated game to GeForce NOW.
And while you wait, be sure to check out CDPR’s critically acclaimed Witcher series, also available to play through GeForce NOW. We’re PC gamers too, so we’ll be right there with you playing Cyberpunk on Day One. Stay tuned for more news.
For those not up to speed with GeForce Now, it’s a cloud streaming service that allows users to stream their library of PC games from Nvidia’s cloud network. Essentially, it means you’re able to call on the power of Nvidia’s top of range hardware to play games that might otherwise run poorly on your own setup.
GeForce Now membership typically costs $4.99, though there’s a 90-day free trial promotion on currently if you’re interested in trying it out.
