Nvidia’s GeForce Now gains Ubisoft’s ‘Assassin’s Creed,’ but loses ‘Batman Arkham’

Nvidia’s GeForce Now cloud gaming service gains key titles from Ubisoft but loses games from Warner Bros, Xbox, Codemasters and Klei Entertainment.

Today’s game market is very distinct from what it was a few years ago. While consoles still rule supreme, there’s a new kid on the block competing for love from gamers — streaming platforms.

Such sites, including Google Stadia and PlayStation Now, provide users with the option to enjoy new products without breaking the bank on pricey new devices.

GeForce Now which comes from Nvidia is the newest entry in this field.

All about Nvidia’s GeForce Now

In early 2020, Nvidia officially launched the full market version of Geforce Now. This online gaming service runs across smartphones, personal computers and Shield TV devices.

GeForce Now allows users to automatically optimize games, update drivers and most impressively, record and live-stream legendary gaming moments.

It works differently from other services as it does not have its storefront. Thus, it enables the player to stream games from other locations such as Steam and Epic Games Store. This feature is one of its biggest advantages, separating it from the rest of the pack.

GeForce Now game updates

GeForce Now has had issues with numerous publishers. Activision and Bethesda remove most of its games from the service just one week after launch.

Recently, all games from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, Xbox Game Studios, Codemasters, and Klei Entertainment will be removed on April 24. These include the Batman Arkham series, all the Lego games, the F1 racing series, and Don’t Starve, among others.

The news is another blow for GeForce Now. Hence, Nvidia is doubling down on efforts to improve its library before it transitions to commercial services in June. With that being said, additional games are expected to arrive in batches through the end of May.

Ubisoft has already pledged its full support of GeForce Now and has officially announced the availability of its entire series of Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry games on the platform starting this week. The aforementioned games will be joining other Ubisoft titles like Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six SiegeFor Honor, and Watch Dogs.

Ubisoft is an interesting addition because the publisher offers some of the most popular game titles on the market today. More importantly, it also has its own Uplay game store and subscription service that it needs to foster on any platform that the company supports.

GeForce Now offers a free service to all users, however, a paid version is available for those who prefer priority access and increased session time. This is currently listed at $4.99/month, but changes are expected as the service develops in the coming year.
