As one of the most anticipated games of 2020, Cyberpunk 2077 will be available on NVIDIA’s GeForce Now Cloud Game service. The CD Projekt Red game will hit the console and PC platform on September 17, while GeForce Noew members who buy games through Steam will be able to play the game on Windows, Mac, Android and Nvidia’s Shield TV.
NVIDIA confirmed this in a recent blog post and said GeForce Now members, while playing Cyberpunk 2077, accessed the ray-tracing technology RTX On through nVIDIA’s services to further optimize the game and provide realistic lighting.
This could be a huge victory for NVIDIA because “misunderstandings” forced the company to remove games released by Activision Blizzard from its services, preventing its members from playing popular games such as Call of Duty and World of Warcraft on GeForce Now.
GeForce Now, which was officially released earlier this month, offers free packages and premium membership options for $5 a month. Unlike rival Google Stadia, which has yet to reveal when Cyberpunk will start using the service, GeForce offers a “bring your own” style of cloud gaming – allowing members to play games they buy wherever they need it. Even if they are purchased on other platforms, such as Steam.
