Certainly, it is no secret Microsoft is searching for new paths for its Xbox Cloud Gaming as its still a tangible perk for Xbox Game Pass. Subscribers are granted access to the library across multiple devices including mobile. The Xbox firm even pledged to support more Samsung displays as well in the past.

And although Microsoft is continuing this effort, it is clarified it will not overtake priority compared to consoles. However, the firm is adamant on supporting the venture with a new project in collaboration with Kojima Productions. Additionally, the firm is also branching PC Game Pass to other cloud services such as NVIDIA GeForce Now revealed earlier in 2023.

On Thursday, Microsoft officially launched the new partnership for GeForce Now and Gears 5 is now available for the service. “We’re thrilled to share that starting today, NVIDIA GeForce NOW cloud gaming members in the U.K., the U.S., the European Union and around the world can stream Gears 5,” the Xbox Wire post reads.

The initial slate of launch games spans our catalog, providing players high-quality, immersive titles with a little something for everyone–single player campaigns, story-driven experiences, and opportunities to play with friends and family through multiplayer. Following this initial release, we’ll continue to add more content from our portfolio on a regular basis to ensure players can always find a new and exciting game. News and release dates will be shared via GFN Thursday updates.

Members will be able to stream PC hits from Xbox Game Studios and Bethesda purchased through Steam or Epic Games Store (for eligible games) on PC, Mac, SHIELD TV, and Android devices – or by visiting play.geforcenow.com on Chromebook and iOS Safari. Our teams are also working to bring support for games purchased through the Microsoft Store in the coming months.

The Xbox firm goes on to note that additional titles will be added as soon as next week. “On May 25 will be able to enjoy fan-favorites Deathloop, Grounded, and Pentiment. This is just the beginning stage of our forward-thinking 10-year partnership with NVIDIA to make PC games from Xbox Game Studios and Bethesda available to their GeForce NOW members. Together, we’re accelerating access to players around the globe by letting them choose how and when they game.”

Microsoft continues by commenting on the effort with other services too. “This is the first in a series of partnerships we’re activating to make our PC games available to players globally through a variety of cloud gaming services, starting with NVIDIA GeForce NOW, and with Boosteroid, Ubitus, EE and Nware in the future. We remain committed to releasing current titles from Xbox Game Studios and Bethesda, and future Activision Blizzard PC games once Microsoft’s acquisition closes.”

Of course, this is left to question how much will effectively be offered. Currently, the new initiative is to back Microsoft’s argument for the Activision Blizzard acquisition. However, the U.K. CMA blocked the deal. And despite the EU Commission passing the purchase, the regulator is still not in favor of the deal. You can read the full report by heading here.
