Microsoft’s PC Game Pass will be accessible on NVIDIA’s GeForce Now service in 2023, along with ‘Select’ titles. Are you looking forward to this new cool collab?
Following the introduction of a partnership between the two tech giants earlier this year, subscribers of Microsoft Game Pass will soon have the ability to stream PC games through NVIDIA’s GeForce Now. It’s like a match made in heaven, isn’t it?! So, practically GeForce Now users will soon be able to “stream select PC games” straight from the library (not sure if the whole library).
As for PC Game Pass users, they will be able to get one of the best in-game experiences so far, thanks to the performance given by NVIDIA’s newest RTX 4080 cards. Nonetheless, this will provide subscribers with access to the service.
The following is an extract from a recent statement by Microsoft:
This will enable the PC Game Pass catalog to be played on any device that GeForce Now streams to, like low spec PCs, Macs, Chromebooks, mobile devices, TVs, and more, and we’ll be rolling this out in the months ahead.
Microsoft and NVIDIA reached an agreement in February to bring games to the GeForce Now service, including titles from Activision Blizzard, like the Call of Duty series. The pact is for a period of ten years. In April, Microsoft also negotiated a deal to make its games available on the platforms of cloud gaming service Nware, which is located in Spain. Prior to that, the company had forged similar deals with Nintendo, Steam, NVIDIA, Boosteroid, Ubitus, and EE.
Previously, the businesses revealed that customers would soon be able to make purchases from the Microsoft Store through GeForce Now. In addition, Xbox titles are already available through GeForce Now, beginning with the release of the Xbox One-exclusive Gears 5 just one month ago.
With the recent announcement that it will make its PC Game Pass subscription available on GeForce Now, Microsoft may still have hope that it will persuade European regulators to approve its acquisition of Activision Blizzard. It is in fact, one of the most unfortunate cases in the gaming industry.
For instance, the merger was denied by regulators in the United Kingdom due to worries over cloud computing. They stated that the deal would provide Microsoft with an “incentive to withhold [Activision Blizzard] games from competitors and substantially weaken competition in this important growing market.” Fingers crossed, a whole new world will fall upon Microsoft.
