Today, NVIDIA announced that its cloud-based service GeForce NOW will be available on SHIELD devices, allowing Macs and low-end PCs to play AAA and other PC titles. While a release date has not been announced yet, the company is striving hard to update users with the ability to play hundreds of games on their computer.
In the very near future, SHIELD will be upgrading to the new GeForce NOW service currently available on PC and Mac, which will deliver PC gaming to the living room. SHIELD owners will be able to play their personal library of PC games or purchase new ones from popular digital stores like Steam and Uplay. And, the hottest games – including Fortnite and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege – are now playable on a streaming media player. Upcoming blockbusters will be available on the service as well, like this fall’s release of Shadow of the Tomb Raider.
With GeForce NOW on SHIELD, you get PC gaming from a device the size of a checkbook, that weighs less than a pound and consumes less than 10W of power – all in the comfort of your living room.
GeForce NOW is the easiest way to play your favorite games. They download nearly instantly and we handle the patches and game updates – all without touching your local hard drive giving you unlimited storage.
No matter where you are, you’ll always be close to the action. A single GeForce NOW account gives you access to cloud gaming on your PC, Mac and now SHIELD. With cloud saves, you can start playing at home in your living room on SHIELD, and continue playing in the office on your corporate-issued laptop or when you’re traveling with your Macbook.
