It is yet another Thursday, and I bet you know what that means!
It is another GFN Thursday Announcement!
This means that if the game you have been eyeing goes on sale at the Epic Games Store, you can purchase it through GeForce Now instead of buying it on Steam because you did not know it was on sale.
A nifty feature, in my opinion. With GeForce Now's ability to let you play games from multiple storefronts, this option will help its users save some extra money. This will also help them retain, or gain, new users!
Oh, and like always, you own the games you purchase. So, if you buy the game through GeForce Now, you will still be able to download it to your local PC through the storefront you bought the game on!
Day-and-date release of Spacebase Startopia
One of the games mentioned in this GFN Thursday update is Spacebase Startopia.
The game has you managing and operating your own space station, and it "mixes economic simulation, strategic conquest and real-time strategy gameplay with more than a dash of humor."
This game is coming to GeForce Now thanks to publisher Kalypso's open platform philosophy.
"We want gamers to be able to play our games as easily as possible," says Marco Nier, international marketing manager at Kalypso. "If they can play on their local machine? Great! If they can use GeForce NOW on their laptop, or Mac, or phone? Even better."
To celebrate this philosophy, Kalypso has also added three of its other games to the GeForce Now platform.
- Commandos 2 - HD Remaster (Steam)
- Immortal Realms: Vampire Wars (Steam)
- Praetorians - HD Remaster (Steam)
All of the above games are currently on sale over at Steam until March 29th, and thanks to GeForce Now, you can purchase them directly in your GeForce Now library!
