Fortnite is coming soon to GeForce Now in a limited-time mobile closed beta streaming through the Safari web browser on iOS and the GeForce Now Android app.
The beta is available to all GeForce Now members registration open and will help test Nvidia's server capacity, graphics performance and the performance of the new touch controls. Members will be admitted to the beta in batches over the coming weeks.
Fortnite streaming with touch controls
Together with the team at Epic Games, Nvidia has been working to enable a cloud-delivered, touch-friendly version of Fortnite for mobile devices. While PC games from the GeForce Now library on mobile are best experienced with a gamepad, the introduction of touch controls developed by the GeForce Now team offers more options for players, starting with Fortnite.
GeForce Now members can now opt-in to participate in the limited-time Fortnite mobile closed beta. If you're not already a member, you can catch up: "Simply sign up for a GeForce Now membership and log in to qualify for the closed beta when the experience begins next week," the electronics giant says.
According to Nvidia, an upgrade to Priority or RTX 3080 membership also offers priority access to the gaming servers. Important: A paid GeForce Now membership is not required to participate.
More touch games to come
Cloud-to-mobile gaming is an opportunity for publishers to get their games into the hands of more players with touch-friendly versions. PC games or game engines like Unreal Engine 4 that support Windows touch events can enable mobile touch support on GeForce Now.
Nvidia is working with publishers to bring more touch-enabled games to GeForce NOW and looks forward to more publishers streaming full PC versions of their games to touch-enabled mobile devices — bringing millions of people to the Reach Android app and iOS Safari devices.
"GFN-Thursday" means more and more games for fans. Members can find these games and more in the cloud this week:
- The Anacrusis (New Release on Steam and Epic Games Store, January 13th)
- Supraland Six Inches Under (New Release on Steam, January 14th)
- Galactic Civilizations 3 (free on the Epic Games Store, January 13-20)
- Ready or Not (Steam)
Nvidia states that it always strives to release games on GeForce Now "as close as possible to their release". In some cases, however, games may not be available immediately.
