GeForce Now, Nvidia’s cloud gaming service, arrives on iOS devices
The cloud gaming service GeForce Now from Nvidia it was launched publicly in February after being in beta for years. Basically the service allows you to play a huge library of streaming games on PC and mobile with the ability to take advantage of Nvidia’s ray tracing. That service is now also available on iOS Safari in beta versionas the company announced.
To register, just go to the official website via an iPhone or iPad. You will need an Nvidia account to log into GeForce Now then you can choose if pay the subscription for € 5.49 per month or opt for the free option and try the service. GeForce Now on Safari requires a gamepad and does not support mouse and keyboard only games.
GeForce Now could mark the return of Fortnite to iOS
The most intriguing aspect of this announcement, however, is that Epic sees this as a way to get Fortnite back to iOS. Fortnite was removed from the App Store in August, as Epic and Apple are currently engaged in a legal dispute since the company believes that Apple’s sales percentage is too high. The case will be tried in May 2021.
The Nvidia and Epic teams are therefore working on a touch-friendly version of Fortnite to be included in the subscription service library. Although it encourages the use of the gamepad for the titles present in GeForce Now, the Fortnite version wants to re-propose the touch experience typical of mobile games to make it faithful to the original version for iOS. We still don’t know when the game will be available though we assume that the launch will not be long in coming.
