Fortnite, a online video game is now available to stream through Nvidia’s GeForce Now cloud gaming service after four months in closed beta. Also, there is good news for iOS users that Fortnite is available for everyone via GeForce Now. iOS users have another solution to play one of the world’s most popular games. It comes After freely ripped from the App Store in August 2020 to bypass Apple’s in-app payment system.
The official launch follows a months-long beta period during which Nvidia says 500,000 people streamed more than 4 million Fortnite sessions through the service. As per the testing result, Nvidia claims it was able to optimize its on-screen touch controls and game menus. Hopefully, the changes address a control scheme that my colleague Jay Peters called picky back in January.
While iOS users have the most to obtain from Fortnite coming to available GeForce Now. The game is obtainable to stream anywhere the cloud gaming service of Nvidia is available. This gaming service is available through native apps on Windows, macOS, Android, Android TV, select LG TVs, and browsers including Chrome and Edge. Fortnite is already available on most of this hardware, so it might be easier to play the free-to-play game natively in many cases.
Fortnite on GeForce Now is long waiting, with Epic and Nvidia announcing their intention to bring the game to the service in November 2020. Earlier this month, the game has since launched on Microsoft’s competitor Xbox Cloud Gaming service. Xbox Cloud Gaming is only available on iOS like GeForce Now through web browsers due to Apple’s restrictions on game streaming services.
As part of today’s announcement, Nvidia says it is offering any beta tester three free days of priority membership to GeForce Now, its mid-tier, which normally costs $8.99 a month. It can redeem through redeem.nvidia.com, but you’ll need to be subscribed to the service’s more expensive $19.99/month RTX 3080 tier to stream Fortnite at 120fps on compatible Android devices.
Nvidia brags that its cloud gaming service now has a library of many games. It is available through a combination of Steam and the Epic Games Store.
