Submit

Ray tracing workhorse Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition arrives next week, and NVIDIA is preparing with some GeForce Now updates and, of course, a new Game Ready Driver. Features coming to GeForce Now include account linking, which will allow you to jump directly into games without having to log into their specific store account, and the ability to preload parts of games so that they launch faster. Currently, these features are only available for Fortnite, but NVIDIA plans to roll them out to other games in the future.
