Nvidia and GOG are finally kicking off their GeForce Now streaming partnership with one of the biggest games of 2020, with Cyberpunk 2077 being the first officially supported title from the digital storefront.
GeForce Now is Nvidia’s own take on game streaming. Instead of paying for games exclusive to its service, like Google Stadia, it pulls supported games from launchers where you have already purchased them, such as Steam and the Epic Games Store. Until this week GOG had not officially announced support, but that changes this week with Cyberpunk 2077.
“Players around the world, who own the game on GOG.COM, will be able to play the game via the cloud gaming service, exploring the streets of Night City on nearly any device including low-powered or incompatible Windows and Mac laptops, Chromebooks and more,” the announcement reads.
Cyberpunk 2077 will be the only game from GOG supported at this time, but the announcement hints at a possible expansion soon. The open-world RPG will be playable on the free tier as well as the paid one, which offers less waiting times in queues and support for features such as 4K and ray tracing.
If you’re still unsure about whether you should pick up CD Projekt Red’s latest title this week, our Cyberpunk 2077 review has you covered. “The side quests and the characters they showcase are the shining beacon through the neon-soaked bleakness of Night City, and they give you room to explore the best the core RPG mechanics have to offer,” wrote editor Kallie Plagge. “These are what carried me through an otherwise disappointing experience.”
