NVIDIA’s GeForce NOW game-streaming service enjoys its share in the now-crowded game streaming market on the fact that it was one of the first to appear for end consumers. The service started beta testing for Android last year and opened up for everyone in February. NVIDIA had pledged to announce new games for GeForce NOW every week, and over the past months, it has kept to that promise. This week, NVIDIA is giving GeForce NOW 7 new additions, including titles like a remake of Half-Life, and Mortal Shell and Peaky Blinders: Mastermind.

These are the titles that have made their way to NVIDIA GeForce NOW this week:

  • Steam
    • Peaky Blinders: Mastermind
    • Black Mesa
    • Half-Life 2: Deathmatch
    • Half-Life 2: Episode 2
    • Steel Division 2
  • Epic Games Store:
    • Mortal Shell
    • Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands

Of these, Peaky Blinders: Mastermind and Mortal Shell are new game launches, having launched on August 20 and August 18 respectively on their platforms.

Here are all the previous title additions to NVIDIA GeForce NOW:

NVIDIA GeForce NOW incorporates technology that utilizes AI and RTX GPUs to enable “the next generation of performance and visuals.” It’s NVIDIA’s improved deep learning neural network that “boosts frame rates while generating beautiful, sharp images for games”. Since the base technology is game streaming, games begin playing instantly when you fire them up. They also include an experience that has been optimized for cloud gaming and includes Game Ready Driver performance improvements, managed directly by NVIDIA. The company also recently added support for Chromebooks, along with decent expansion of its Highlights feature over the past weeks.
