One of the big annoyances with Nvidia’s best — albeit most expensive — 1440p/120fps RTX 3080 plan for its GeForce Now cloud-gaming service is that you couldn’t try it out without paying for the $100 six-month subscription. Now the company has expanded its plans to include a $20 monthly option.
At $20/month it’s really expensive as a subscription, especially since it doesn’t include a vault of games like Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Cloud Gaming and competitors (GeForce Now only lets you play the games you own). But it’s not too much to pay if you want to figure out whether it’s worth the upgrade from one of the lesser plans or if you occasionally want to be able to remotely speedrun through a game.

Or, it could be the best option if you only have one or two games that you want to play via the service — it’s got a large and growing library of supported games, both old and new, which Nvidia adds to on a weekly basis. For instance this week’s newbies include Distant Worlds 2, a DLC for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Dawn of Ragnarök and a handful more. But there are still big gaps, a common problem with all the services. At least for now.
