NVIDIA has announced a price hike for its cloud gaming platform, GeForce Now.

Initially titled the "Founders Tier," NVIDIA offered it to subscribers for $5 a month or $25 for six months. The Founders tier allowed users to gain priority in gaming queue lines, access to RTX and DLSS features, and an extended session length.

The Founders tier is no more, as it has been replaced with the "Priority Tier."

This new tier will keep the same features that the previous Founders Tier offered. However, with a price increase.

The new cost will be $10 a month, or $100 a year. The yearly membership will, of course, be the better deal, saving you $20. But, compared to the previous membership costs, this is double the cost.

The $10 a month cost puts it in line with other Cloud Gaming services like Google Stadia, Amazon Luna, and the Boost tier of Shadow.

Those that have subscribed to NVIDIA's Founder Tier will continue to receive the founder's pricing, as they have been grandfathered in. This is understandable as many subscribers have been "Founders" since the early beta of the service.

NVIDIA GeForce Now will continue to allow gamers to play their Steam, Epic Games Store, and GOG libraries through their service. You can try out the platform for free, but you will be limited in features.

If you want RTX or DLSS, along with a priority in hardware usage, you will need to subscribe to the new Priority tier.
