GeForce NOW is NVIDIA's solution for online cloud gaming. It famously adds titles every Thursday, for the benefit of players who own them already but do not have a high-powered PC to hand. Today, this list includes Control, as well as games that have also become free on the Epic Games Store today.
Deirdre O'Donnell,

NVIDIA's GeForce NOW faced considerable adversity on its launch as a game-streaming system. It has seen the loss of numerous titles from multiple studios thanks to their negative reaction to its revenue model in its history. However, it has also gained support from other complementary platforms in the gaming industry, which may have helped it keep up its goal of adding new games on the Thursday of every week.

GeForce NOW has also managed the possibly crucial trick of keeping step with new releases and (most importantly) free games generated by Steam and the Epic Games Store. This week, it has lived up to this achievement once again with freshly-gained support for Hitman and the Shadowrun compendium.

These games are available at no charge from the store from today (August 27, 2020 until September 3. The streaming service has also added Surgeon Simulator 2 (a day-one release on Epic), Control (Ultimate Edition, which means it also includes this game's expansions) and Blasphemous. Uplay's Assassin's Creed Freedom Cry and Rayman Origins are also now playable on the cloud-gaming platform.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
