Xbox Game Pass is Coming to GeForce NOW

Nvidia is starting to unlock access to PC Game Pass and Microsoft Store titles on its GeForce Now streaming service this week. PC Game Pass subscribers will be able to start streaming titles through GeForce Now on August 24, including Microsoft's own games like Deathloop and Grounded, as well as third-party titles like No Man's Sky and Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord.


While Game Pass and Microsoft Store PC games are available on GeForce Now, not all will be available for immediate streaming on the Nvidia service. Nvidia has done the work of integrating the Microsoft Store into GeForce Now, but has yet to integrate all the games available on a PC Game Pass subscription.

This means that PC Game Pass subscribers and anyone who purchased a game from the Microsoft Store may need to wait a little longer for its entire library to be available in GeForce Now.

Microsoft's first Xbox games for PC began arriving on GeForce Now in May , after an agreement between Microsoft and Nvidia. The companies signed a 10-year deal that allows Nvidia to license Xbox PC games for GeForce Now, as part of a broader effort by Microsoft to appease regulators over its proposed deal with Activision Blizzard. The deal also includes access to Activision Blizzard titles if Microsoft completes the acquisition.

Cloud gaming has proved to be a controversial part of Microsoft's proposed acquisition of Activision Blizzard, with the Competition and Markets Authority from the UK citing it as the main reason it blocked the deal in April. In response, Microsoft is planning to sell its cloud gaming rights from Activision Blizzard to Ubisoft in a bid to seal the deal in the UK. Ubisoft will control the streaming rights to Activision Blizzard's games outside the EU and will license the titles back to Microsoft for inclusion in Xbox Cloud Gaming.
