GeForce NOW gives gamers a world-class GeForce PC gaming experience with low latency and beautiful ray-traced graphics on nearly any device. GeForce NOW also gives you a chance to play with your friends who may not be game ready.

When you fire up your favourite game, you’re playing it instantly. That’s what it means to be Game Ready on GeForce NOW. The experience has been optimised for cloud gaming and includes Game Ready Driver performance improvements. We manage the game updates and patches. And when a game supports RTX, it streams with beautifully ray-traced graphics.

Over 500 games from over 200 publishers are already available to play instantly, and today the library grows once again with the addition of 14 games from Square Enix.

Square Enix has opted in many of their popular franchises to GeForce NOW, such as Deus Ex, Just Cause and Tomb Raider from Crystal Dynamics, Eidos, and other developers.

But this is just the beginning. We’ll continue adding games from Square Enix’s massive catalog in the weeks and months ahead.

Lara Croft’s return to GeForce NOW includes her most recent starring role in Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Founders members can play the game with RTX On, delivering enhanced environments that improve fidelity, detail and appearance of shadows across the entire game.

GeForce NOW helps publishers reach millions of PC gamers who don’t have game-ready PCs. Gaining access to this growing install base, without additional development work, is one of the reasons why Square Enix opted in to streaming their games on GeForce NOW.
