GFN Thursday with a focus on indie games as well as 11 new titles for GFN and Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord gets DLSS support.
As the celebrations of GeForce NOW’s one year anniversary continue, today’s GFN Thursday focuses on some of the amazing indie games available now. Highlights of GFN Thursday are Mount & Blade II: Banner Lordwhich will receive DLSS support later this week Worms Rumble Free Weekend on Steam – running Thursday through Sunday – and 11 new games, including many indie titles, joining the GeForce NOW library this week.
An indie spotlight
This week we’re celebrating the many independent studios that form the backbone of the GFN library. Indies are at the heart of PC gaming and without the nearly 300 indie titles available, GeForce NOW wouldn’t have the great range of games the service offers today.
Valheim has rocketed to the top of the Steam charts for most played games. Thanks to GeForce NOW, Coffee Stain Studios and Iron Gate AB are able to bring this game to even more players.
“We released Valheim in Early Access on Steam and NVIDIA immediately helped us bring it to even more players with GeForce NOW. This way even Mac users can play Valheim,” explains Henrik Törnqvist, Lead Game Designer of Valheim at Iron Gate AB.
Terraria is another of the most played PC games. This indie favorite from Re-Logic is now attracting new fans and bringing it to more devices for the existing fanbase.
“Streaming Terraria on GeForce NOW makes perfect sense to us. We’ve always looked for ways to make our game accessible to as many people as possible. GFN helps achieve this goal by giving our players the ability to play on any device without any additional development effort on our part. We look forward to both new and existing players enjoying all that Terraria has to offer, whether through the traditional PC/console/mobile route or via streaming from the cloud,” said Ted Murphy, Head of Business Strategy and marketing at Re-Logic.
Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord gets DLSS 2.0 support
Once games take advantage of NVIDIA DLSS 2.0 (Deep Learning Super Sampling) technology, GeForce NOW members will reap the benefits. Current examples include War Thunder and, just released this week, Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord. Another example of how GeForce NOW supports the development of future indie titles.
Worms Rumble, free on weekends
Since GFN streams the PC versions of games directly from popular online distribution platforms, members can immediately take part in promotions, such as the current free weekend for Worms Rumble by Team17 on Steam, which runs from Thursday to Sunday.
