But it gets Assassin's Creed and Far Cry series from Ubisoft
As Nvidia prepares for commercial service in June, it appears that Geforce Now will say farewell to some publishers, including Xbox Games Studios (Microsoft), but some games are coming to the service as well, including some from Ubisoft.
Big hit for the service
Although there are plenty of developers and publishers eager to get on the Geforce Now train, some big names are pulling out, and the latest is 2K Games, which means that some big titles are no longer available.
Promises 1500 new games

With Ray Tracing for Geforce Now Founders
Nvidia has confirmed that CD Projekt Red's Cyberpunk 2077 will be available on Geforce Now the day it is released, which is great news for the service and was expected with the recent launch of limited edition Nvidia Geforce GTX 2080 Ti Cyberpunk 2077 Edition graphics card.

Nvidia Geforce Now is now available for free to everyone, hour session at a time, while the Founder Edition costs $4.99, and offers priority and unlimited gaming. Most importantly, you can play most of the games you own.
