It’s a fortuitous GFN Thursday with 17 new games joining the GeForce NOW library, including The Day Before, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora and the 100th PC Game Pass title to join the cloud — Ori and the Will of the Wisps.

This week also marks a milestone: over 500 games and applications now support RTX ON. GeForce NOW Ultimate and Priority members can experience cinematic ray tracing on nearly any device thanks to NVIDIA RTX-powered gaming rigs in the cloud. Check out the RTX ON game row in the GeForce NOW app to play even more titles featuring this stunning graphics technology.

Stayin’ Alive

Take a trip to the big city and say hi to the locals.

The Day Before, Fntastic’s new open-world horror massively multiplayer online game, is a uniquely reimagined journey of survival set on the east coast of the present-day U.S. after the world has been overrun by zombies. Priority and Ultimate members can stream the game on nearly any device with support for RTX ON.

Explore the beautifully detailed New Fortune City, filled with skyscrapers, massive malls and grand stadiums, with a variety of vehicles. Fight against other players and those infected by a deadly virus. Survive by collecting loot, completing quests and building houses — all on a day-and-night cycle.

Help rebuild society from the comfort of the couch and across devices, streaming from the cloud. Priority members can build and survive at up to 1080p and 60 frames per second. Ultimate members can take advantage of longer session lengths, gain support for ultrawide resolutions and stream at up to 4K 120 fps. Both memberships offer support for real-time ray tracing, bringing cinematic lighting to every zombie encounter.

A New Adventure in the Clouds

You can fly, you can fly.

Fight for the future of the Na’vi in Ubisoft’s Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora. Expanding on the stories told in the hit Avatar films, the open-world action-adventure game explores a never-before-seen region of Pandora called the Western Frontier, with all-new environments, creatures and enemies.

Discover what it means to be Na’vi and join other clans to protect Pandora from the RDA, a corporation looking to exploit Pandora’s resources. Harness incredible strength and agility with character customization, craft new gear, and upgrade skills and weapons. Members can enjoy soaring across the skies with their Banshees, dragon-like creatures useful for exploring the vast Western Frontier and engaging the RDA in aerial combat.

Experience the epic adventure on nearly any device with a GeForce NOW Ultimate membership, streaming from GeForce RTX 4080-powered servers in the cloud. Ultimate members can save the Na’vi at up to 4K resolution or take in Pandora’s beautiful vistas at ultrawide resolution for the most cinematic, immersive gameplay.

A Journey of Courage

Ori-nge you glad you streamed it from the cloud?

Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition and Ori and the Will of the Wisps are the newest Xbox PC games to join GeForce NOW, which now includes 100 PC Game Pass titles. Developed by Moon Studios and published by Xbox Game Studios, the award-winning adventure series follows a spirit guardian named Ori as he explores beautiful, dangerous worlds.

In Ori and the Blind Forest, members must help Ori restore balance to the forest. Separated from his home during a storm and adopted by a creature called Naru, Ori must team up with a spirit named Sein to find his true destiny when calamity strikes the world of Nibel.

The sequel, Ori and the Will of the Wisps, brings Ori’s journey to a new world, Niwen, a hidden land of wonders and dangers. Ori must help a young, broken-winged owl named Ku and heal the land from dark corruption — all while encountering new friends, foes and mysteries that will test the spirit guardian’s courage and skills.

Members can take the adventure with them, streaming Ori’s adventures across nearly all of their devices thanks to the cloud. GeForce NOW Ultimate members can also light their journeys with high dynamic range on supported devices for an unparalleled visual experience.
