GeForce NOW Free Beta Available Now on PC Across Most of North America and Europe
Chris Early, vice president of Partnerships and Revenue at Ubisoft, said:
Ubisoft is excited that gamers playing acclaimed franchises such as Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege on Uplay PC can now enjoy outstanding play experiences on PCs and Macs thanks to NVIDIA’s futuristic GeForce NOW service, without needing a high-end PC. NVIDIA is powering a high-quality experience that now streams a selection of Ubisoft’s top franchises.
Mark Rein, vice president of Epic Games, added:
It’s really fun to be able to play Paragon and Fortnite using NVIDIA’s GeForce NOW service. The games stream very smoothly, even on my Macbook Air, giving you the feeling you’re playing natively. Well done, NVIDIA!
This cloud-based streaming service will allow you to play games at 1080p resolution and up to 120FPS, as you can see in the comparative chart below (against a notebook powered by Pentium 4200 CPU and Intel HD 505 GPU).
You will be able to connect your own UPlay and Steam libraries; according to NVIDIA, patches and updates are downloaded automatically through GeForce NOW and cloud saves are enabled, too.
As of now, there are ten data centers spread between North America and Europe. You won't be able to join right away on the free beta though, as there's a waitlist "due to overwhelming demand". Interested gamers can request access here and check out all the currently supported titles here.
