At launch, GeForce NOW Powered by Pentanet will provide more than 1,000 games through the service by connecting users’ existing platform accounts, such as Steam, Epic Games Store, and GOG, to play the games they own via RTX-enabled cloud streaming. There will also be over 100 free-to-play games on the service.

The ‘Priority’ version of the service will give users access to the full power of RTX when streaming games, as well as extended play sessions and priority queues, while the ‘Basic’ membership will be available for users to check out for a limited time. the service is free, albeit limited to one-hour sessions and without RTX features.

To celebrate the launch, Pentanet is offering limited Founders Priority pricing. Starting at 5pm AWST, users can claim a Priority membership for AU$19.99 per month on a monthly subscription or a discounted rate of AU$17.99 per month for a 12-month subscription.
