NVIDIA GeForce Now to Add Xbox Games to Streaming Library

NVIDIA GeForce Now, the popular game streaming service, is expanding its library by adding several Xbox games this week. In collaboration with Microsoft, NVIDIA will integrate PC Game Pass and Microsoft Store games into its platform.

This partnership means that first-party titles like Deathloop and Grounded will be among the first Microsoft games available on NVIDIA GeForce Now. Additionally, third-party games from Microsoft's game streaming service will also make their way to NVIDIA's offering.

NVIDIA GeForce Now currently offers over 1,500 titles for streaming on various devices. However, the addition of Microsoft's PC Game Pass games will significantly expand the library even further. The rollout is scheduled to start on August 24, 2023.

While the integration of the Microsoft Store into GeForce Now will take some time, eventually, all PC Game Pass entries will be accessible through the streaming service.

This collaboration between Microsoft and NVIDIA was established earlier this year, with a 10-year agreement signed by Microsoft to make its games available on GeForce Now. This move was partly aimed at addressing regulatory concerns in the UK regarding Microsoft's acquisition of Activision Blizzard.

The ongoing situation with the UK's Competition and Markets Agency has prompted Microsoft to restructure its purchase of Activision Blizzard. This includes changes to how streaming Activision Blizzard titles through the cloud will be handled.

Overall, this partnership between Microsoft and NVIDIA not only benefits gamers by expanding their options for enjoying games on various devices but also demonstrates the ongoing efforts to overcome regulatory challenges and provide a seamless gaming experience.
