Geforce Now Increases Library With Control, RTX Support Also Confirmed


Nvidia is trying to stop the downfall of its streaming service, Geforce Now. Its library will finally get a little bigger after a number of major publishers have decided to pull out lately. The most important game that is joining Geforce Now is Control. The IGN GOTY award-winning game was missing from the service when it was launched.

Control will be available on the service along with its new story expansion pack The Foundation. That’s not all though, as Founders members of the streaming service will have the opportunity to play the game with a DirectX version of ray tracing enabled. RTX in Control is mind-blowingly good. The floor is going to look real nice and shiny. Another game that uses Microsoft ray tracing technology is Minecraft. It is about time that Control was announced for Geforce Now, as previously Epic Store claimed that they plan to “wholeheartedly” support the service.


Many big publishers like Activision Blizzard, 2K Games, and Bethesda pulled out from the service after the beta ended. It’s probably because they wanted some share of the profits from the games that are streamed. However, Nvidia doesn’t think that as they only stream the games that players already own. This means publisher aren't losing anything over the service, but they aren't gaining anything by supporting it either. It’s undeniable that the decision by the publishers did hurt the streaming service's ability to grow.

Control is not the only game that will be coming to Geforce Now this week. Many other titles like Headsnatchers, IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad, Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, Jagged Alliance 2 – Wildfire, The Guild 3, Dungeons 3, and Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead are also confirmed.

Personally, I am rooting for Geforce Now. The fact that you don’t have to worry about whether your PC meets the system requirement of a game is a real system seller for me, or at least a service seller. Now, if only Stadia can make a turnaround and become relevant again.

So what do you think? Are you excited about any of these games? Will you play Control using Geforce Now? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
