Cyberpunk 2077 Is Coming to Nvidia GeForce Now With RTX Ray Tracing Support

Cyberpunk 2077 is coming to Nvidia's GeForce Now cloud gaming service with all the bells and whistles of the studio's RTX support. This means that even if your PC can't handle what's sure to be a hardware intensive game, you'll still be able to stream CD Projekt Red's upcoming RPG and experience the vibrant metropolis of Night City with real-time ray tracing included.

GeForce Now recently left beta, giving subscribers the ability to stream games from their own libraries on storefronts like Steam and Epic Games Store. It hasn't been smooth sailing for Nvidia thus far, though, with publishers such as 2K Games, Activision Blizzard, and Bethesda Softworks pulling its games from the service due to misunderstandings or even hazier reasons. Hinterland Studio, the developer behind The Long Dark, also removed the survival game from GeForce Now because it claims Nvidia didn't ask for permission. It appears as though Cyberpunk 2077 won't suffer the same fate, however.

"Cyberpunk 2077 will be available on GeForce Now the day it's released," Nvidia wrote in a forum post. "GeForce Now members will be able to grab their copy on Steam and play the game the moment it's available. GeForce Now Founders members can explore the streets of Night City with RTX ON, fully optimized and instantly available, even on your Mac laptop. We're thrilled to work with CD Projekt Red to bring its eagerly-anticipated game to GeForce Now."

Having Cyberpunk 2077 playable on the service at launch, with ray tracing included, is a coup for Nvidia, then. While the RPG is also coming to Google Stadia--a rival cloud gaming service--it's not yet clear if it will be launching on Stadia the same day as every other platform. CD Projekt announced last year that Cyberpunk 2077 would be coming to Stadia sometime in 2020 after already launching on console and PC, but the game's delay from April to September may have changed that situation. Either way, being able to play one of the most anticipated games of the year with GeForce Now is a win for Nvidia.

The company has also had some other positive news recently as it celebrated GeForce Now surpassing one million subscribers. More than 1,500 games are set to launch on the cloud gaming service in the future.

Cyberpunk 2077 is set to launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on September 17.
