Microsoft plans to add PC Game Pass games to the NVIDIA GeForce Now streaming service. This was stated by Sarah Bond, head of Xbox creator experience, at a briefing in Los Angeles, writes The Verge.
“You will be able to play your PC Game Pass catalog on all the devices supported by Nvidia GeForce Now,” she said.
According to Xbox Wire editor-in-chief Joe Skrebels, this will allow the PC Game Pass catalog to be played on any device that streams GeForce Now.
“…like low spec PCs, Macs, Chromebooks, mobile devices, TVs, and more, and we’ll be rolling this out in the months ahead,”he explained on his blog.
GeForce Now subscribers will be able to stream select PC games from the library, so it doesn’t appear to be a full catalog. But it’s still a big event for cloud gaming, which will allow PC Game Pass subscribers to enjoy NVIDIA’s game streaming service with RTX 4080-level performance.
It also means that the company’s promised support for GeForce Now in the Microsoft Store goes beyond just user purchases and extends to PC Game Pass subscriptions.
The work is part of a new partnership between Microsoft and NVIDIA that will bring Xbox games for PC to GeForce Now. Earlier this year, Microsoft signed a 10-year agreement with NVIDIA about licensing Xbox games for PC on GeForce Now.
