Play PC Games on Mac with NVIDIA GeForce Now!

I've been interested in streaming games services since 2010 with OnLive, which was also available for Mac, but since it's closure there hasn't really been an alternative. Enter NVIDIA GeForce Now, a new cloud gaming service that allows you to play games from your Steam and Battle.net libraries.

 

I personally really enjoy what NVIDIA GeForce Now is bringing to the table. Providing a means to play the games I already own and can purchase from Steam and Battle.net is what cloud gaming should be. They have a list of supported games, but you can easily install and run any unsupported game you own in Steam and Battle.net, and I would fully expect big titles like Destiny 2 to be officially supported as well.

 

NVIDIA GeForce Now doesn't use any of your local hardware, and instead streams the game to you from a remote Windows PC provided by the service that is running high-end NVIDIA GPUs and Hardware, providing a very smooth and enjoyable gaming experience. You can sign-up for beta here: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/products/geforce-now/mac-pc/

 

You can also see an in-depth look at NVIDIA GeForce Now below, where I try out Overwatch, Warframe, and the new Dark and Light.

Now we know why nVidia still has not released any webdriver for 10.13.  :P  As I said, they have interests elsewhere.  :yes:

 

On a more serious note, Cloud Gaming is nothing new... I would even say it is a logical next after the establishment of various solutions of clouding.

 

Nevertheless, thanks for the article and the video.  ;)

Does this mean they have finally figured out faster-than-lightspeed-travel internet? Cloud gaming will be inferior (and useless for multiplayer gaming) if they haven't.

Works great from my experience. Played a bunch of multiplayer games, no issues here.
