Nvidia Pushing Huge Range of AAA Titles To GRID
Peter Donnell / 2 years ago
Nvidia has been working tirelessly to develop their GRID gaming service. GRID is a cloud-based gaming service, which renders the games on Nvidia servers, streams the video output to your device, such as the Nvidia Shield Tablet. You don’t need to install the games and the graphics are what you would expect from a high-end desktop PC, not a tablet device. The whole thing works much in the same way as NetFlix; with the addition that you’re actually playing the game that’s streaming.
Nvidia is pre-announcing three new titles as they lead up to 40 titles on the GRID service. With GDC 2015 just around the corner, we can no doubt expect even more incredible announcements from the green team.
- As of Feb. 17 Saints Row IV is available on NVIDIA SHIELD from the cloud-based NVIDIA GRID.
- Feb. 24 Alan Wake will be available.
- March 3 Metro Last Light Redux will be available.
“We started our push to 40 titles last week with indie smash Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, winner of multiple game of the year awards in 2013. This week Saints Row IV and its 9.5 out of 10 rating on Destructoid joins Saints Row: The Third on SHIELD. Title 39 will be Alan Wake, which was Time Magazine’s Game of the Year for 2010. 40 will be Metro Last Light Redux, which GameSpot gave a ‘superb’ 9 out of 10. Saints Row IV, Alan Wake, and Metro Last Light Redux will round out 40 titles on NVIDIA GRID leading up to GDC.” – Said Nvidia in a recent statement.
It’s great to see so many incredible games coming to the service, given that it launched with just 20 titles in November; the service is about to hit 40 titles! Remember, if you have a Shield or are planning to buy one, the GRID service is currently free! Giving everyone a great opportunity to try it out while Nvidia develop and grow GRID.
