NVIDIA (NVDA) GeForce NOW Adds New Games From Electronic Arts
NVIDIA (NVDA) collaborates with Electronic Arts to enhance its cloud gaming service platform, GeForce Now, with the addition of five popular games.
NVIDIA Corporation NVDA recently announced that it has partnered with Electronic Arts EA, a global leader in digital interactive entertainment, to bring in more hit games to its cloud gaming platform, GeForce Now.
This move will provide a further boost to NVIDIA’s cloud gaming portfolio. The company will initially be adding five popular games of Electronic Arts – Battlefield 1 Revolution, Apex Legends, Mirror's Edge Catalyst, Dragon Age: Inquisition and Unravel Two. All these games of Electronic Arts will be streamed via the GeForce NOW Alliance network.
This agreement will not only help the gamers forego downloading, patching and updating games but also save the game developers from their porting tasks.
GeForce Now streams more than 20 million hours of gameplay per month from data centers located across 70 nations globally. This cloud-native platform will give Electronic Arts access to over 12 million gamers.
