The Sky’s the Limit: ‘Cities: Skylines II’ Streams This Week on GeForce NOW

The cloud is full of treats this GFN Thursday with Cities: Skylines II now streaming, leading 15 newly supported games this week. The game’s publisher, Paradox Interactive, is offering GeForce NOW one-month Priority memberships for those who pick up the game first, so make sure to grab one before they’re gone.

Among the newly supported additions to the GeForce NOW library are more games from the PC Game Pass catalog, including Ghostwire Tokyo, State of Decay and the Dishonored series. Members can also look forward to Alan Wake 2 — streaming soon.

Cloud City

If you build it, they will come.

Members can build the metropolis of their dreams this week in Cities: Skylines II, the sequel to Paradox Interactive’s award-winning city sim. Raise a city from the ground up and transform it into a thriving urban landscape. Get creative to build on an unprecedented scale while managing a deep simulation and a living economy.

The game’s AI and intricate economics mean every choice ripples through the fabric of a player’s city, so they’ll have to stay sharp — strategizing, solving problems and reacting to challenges. Build sky-high and sprawl across the map like never before. New dynamic map features affect how the city expands amid rising pollution, changing weather and seasonal challenges.

Paradox is offering one-month GeForce NOW Priority memberships to the first 100,000 people who purchase the game, so budding city planners can optimize their gameplay across nearly any device. Visit Cities Skylines II for more info.

Newly Risen in the Cloud

Settle in for a spooky night with the newest PC Game Pass additions to the cloud: State of Decay and the Dishonored series.

“The right choice is the one that keeps us alive.”

Drop into a post-apocalyptic world and fend off zombies in State of Decay 2: Juggernaut Edition from Undead Labs and Xbox Game Studios. Band together with a small group of survivors and rebuild a corner of civilization in this dynamic, open-world sandbox. Fortify home base, perform daring raids for food and supplies and rescue other survivors who may have unique talents to contribute. Head online with friends for an up to four-player online co-op mode and visit their communities to help defend them and bring back rewards. No two players’ experiences will be the same.

Dishonor on you, dishonor on your cow, “Dishonored” in the cloud.

Get supernatural with the Dishonored series, which comprises first-person action games set in a steampunk Lovecraftian world. In Dishonored, follow the story of Corvo Attano — a former bodyguard turned assassin driven by revenge after being framed for the murder of the Empress of Dunwall. Choose stealth or violence with Dishonored’s flexible combat system and Corvo’s supernatural abilities.

The Definitive Edition includes the original Dishonored game with updated graphics, the “Void Walker’s Arsenal” add-on pack, plus expansion packs for more missions: “The Knife of Dunwall,” “The Brigmore Witches” and “Dunwall City Trials.”

Follow up with the sequel, Dishonored 2, set 15 years after Dishonored. Members can play as Corvo or his daughter, Emily, who seeks to reclaim her rightful place as the Empress of Dunwall. Dishonored: Death of the Outsider is the latest in the series, following the story of former assassin Billie Lurk on her mission to discover the origins of a mysterious entity called The Outsider.

It’s Getting Dark in Here

Maybe you should be afraid of the dark after all.

Alan Wake 2, the long-awaited sequel to Remedy Entertainments’ survival-horror classic, is coming soon to the cloud.

What begins as a small-town murder investigation rapidly spirals into a nightmare journey. Uncover the source of a supernatural darkness in this psychological horror story filled with suspense and unexpected twists. Play as FBI agent Saga Anderson and Alan Wake, a horror writer long trapped in the Dark Place, to see events unfold from different perspectives.

Ultimate members will soon be able to uncover mysteries with the power of a GeForce RTX 4080 server in the cloud. Survive the surreal world of Alan Wake 2 at up to 4K resolution and 120 frames per second, with path-traced graphics accelerated and enhanced by NVIDIA DLSS 3.5 and NVIDIA Reflex technology.

Trick or Treat: Give Me All New Games to Beat
