GeForce NOW Expands to New Territories in 2021

Nvidia's GeForce Now is a cloud gaming service that's well-regarded across the territories where it's available.

GeForce Now, Nvidia's cloud games streaming service, will be available in Saudi Arabia sometime this year, the company announced today. Gamers in the country can pre-register their interest in the game streaming service from the GAME+ page. With that in mind, 2021 is going to be a very interesting year for cloud gaming.

NVIDIA hasn't announced any local partners, suggesting that they may be placing their own RTX Servers on Australian soil. The games are run from these server sites, receiving input information from the remote device being used for playback, with the games' visual and audio information streamed and responding in real time. Pentanet in Australia, Turkcell in Turkey and Zain KSA in Saudi Arabia will allow its customers to launch into Nvidia's game streaming service later this year. Currently, the service has two subscription tiers; a free play that's limited to 1-hour play sessions and a founders subscription that provides "front of the line" access, and the ability to use Ray Tracing. A somewhat confusing move, due to the whole east-coast of Australia housing, you know, most of the people. Or are you planning on trying it at some point in the near future?
