The latest set of GeForce NOW-compatible games has been announced, and it is a delight for any Resident Evil fans out there. The NVIDIA subscription service has long allowed players to stream their favourite games on the cloud at the highest framerates, and now they'll be able to do it while scared too.

It is not just Capcom's highly-acclaimed horror series that's joining the service either, with nine new games in total accompanying the already massive library of games, only furthering the value of GeForce NOW as a platform.

NVIDIA have welcomed Capcom to the GeForce NOW family, bringing several key Resident Evil titles to the cloud with top framerates and visuals unlocked for all players. The three games in question are Resident Evil 7 and the remakes of both Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3, giving you the perfect chance to catch up before jumping into the recent Resident Evil 4: Remake.

Joining the three Resident Evil games and an ever-expanding library of over 1,600 titles are the following:

  • Shadows of Doubt
  • Afterimage
  • Roots of Pacha
  • Bramble: The Mountain King
  • The Swordsmen X: Survival
  • Poker Club

You'll also be able to take advantage of these titles with the new RTX 4080 SuperPODs that have gone live for Ultimate-tier users, ensuring the highest possible performance and visuals no matter what is inside your own PC.

Discount available for GeForce NOW Priority

If you're not currently a member of GeForce NOW and like the sound of the games included above, then now might be the perfect time for you to jump in. 

There is currently a discount for the Priority tier, where six months will set you back a mere $29.99/£26.99, allowing you access to an RTX-enabled premium rig, minimal wait times on the premium servers, and up to six hours of gaming at a time.

This particular tier does only allow you to play at 1080p 60fps however, so if you're wanting to bump it up to 4K 120fps with even longer sessions, then an upgrade to the Ultimate tier will be the one for you.

If you're unfamiliar with the service though, you will need to own the games in order to take advantage of the benefits, but once you've got them all set up you will be able to game away without the restrictions of your own hardware.
