Nvidia GeForce Now gets day passes, G-Sync for cloud gaming


Nvidia announced today several new updates for its cloud gaming service, GeForce Now. According to the company, two of Activision Blizzard’s most popular titles, Diablo IV and Overwatch 2, are coming to GeForce Now. It’s also planned a number of upgrades including day passes, G-Sync technology and several other games.

Nvidia’s G-Sync technology is coming to Ultimate-tier GeForce Now subscribers. Cloud G-Sync will match the user’s display refresh rate to match the streaming rate. The same tier also features support for Nvidia Reflex, which optimizes latency for cloud-based titles. Ultimate users can soon use Reflex for supported titles on GeForce Now, including Cyberpunk 2077, Diablo IV, Overwatch 2 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

The company announced that it would soon begin offering day passes for potential GeForce Now subscribers. These passes offer the users access to the benefits of Priority and Ultimate subscriptions for a 24-hour period, with the intention being to give them a glimpse of the service before subscribing for a month(s)-long subscription. They can access features such as RTX On and full ray tracing. The day passes launch in February for $7.99 for an Ultimate day pass, and $3.99 for a Priority day pass.

The other games that are coming to GeForce Now include Exoprimal, Honkai Star Rail and Pax Dei. According to Nvidia, it’s working with Capcom to bring other games to the service. The only game with a release date at the moment is Exoprimal, which joins GeForce Now’s library of supported games on January 18. Nvidia also announced it’s launching a 1440p resolution option for mobile gamers on Android devices.
