GeForce NOW Thursday: From Far Cry to the Galaxies and Beyond

Far Cry 6

Our October update for GeForce NOW is here and there is a month of some big games on the horizon, it all starts now! We have big hitters from Far Cry 6, Guardians of the Galaxy and Riders Republic. Including those titles, there’s 23 coming to the service this month.

It’s a great month ahead with some fantastic titles being added, so let’s take a look at what is coming.

F.I.S.T: Forged in Shadow Torch

For the second month running, GeForce NOW snaps up a Playstation console exclusive and brings it to life in the cloud. A game that our very own Maker of Chaos gave us all a first look at on our YouTube Channel.

Six years ago, the Machine Legion invaded and colonized the Torch City, which was originally inhabited by animals. Rayton, the former soldier in the resistance war, has been living in seclusion since then. After his friend is forcibly arrested, Rayton reclaims his mechanical fist and steps to his journey fighting back. And he never expects that he has been involved in a bigger scheme between the mafia, the rebellion, and the legion.

Exploring the Metroidvania game world with a dozen of areas with distinguishing vision themes and level designs. Earning the rewards by conquering the challenges of combats, puzzles and platformers in countless chambers, tunnels and shortcuts.
Interconnected and automatically loading game map makes the detailed Torch City more convincing and beautiful.

Far Cry 6

Welcome to Yara, a tropical paradise frozen in time. As the dictator of Yara, Antón Castillo is intent on restoring his nation back to its former glory by any means, with his son, Diego, following in his bloody footsteps. Their oppressive rule has ignited a revolution.

  • Play as Dani Rojas, a local Yaran, as you fight alongside a modern-day guerrilla revolution to liberate Yara!
  • Fight against Castillo’s regime in the most expansive Far Cry® to date, through jungles, beaches, and Esperanza, the capital city of Yara.
  • Employ an arsenal of resolver weapons, backpacks, and vehicles to take down Castillo’s ruthless regime.

Duncan checked this out on launch day and we’ll have footage up on our YouTube channel shortly for people to get a glimpse into what to expect from the latest instalment in the Far Cry series. Have you got what it takes to liberate Yara and free the people of Giancarlo Esposito’s twisted character?

In addition to the above titles, we’re also getting the full game streaming experience with the following titles this week.

Not enough games for you? Well don’t worry, GeForce NOW have got you covered with the remaining titles which will be available on the service in the month of October.

Originally in addition to the above, Buccaneers was listed to be coming to the service, however on the Steam page there is a notification showing that this game is seemingly now arriving in February 2022, so watch this space on that one!

There feels like only one way we can end this week’s post for #GFNThursday. That is with this…. ENJOY! Are you excited for Guardians and all it’s RTX goodness? Let us know!

Today is Ubisoft’s digital event which is their E3 replacement. During the event, we should find out about Watch Dogs Legion, Assassins Creed Valhalla, Far Cry 6, “Gods and Monsters” and more.
