In early May, Microsoft made a move and got ahead of its rivals. It started offering the popular game through Xbox Cloud Gaming. Consequently, there are now two alternatives to play, yes, via streaming.
‘Fortnite’ llega a GeForce Now
The arrival of ‘Fortnite’ to GeForce Now has not been fast. Nvidia revealed its intentions to include the title on its service in November 2020.. The months went by until a closed beta was announced in January this year that would allow streaming gaming through the iOS Safari web browser and, in addition, the GeForce NOW application for Android.
The goal of the beta, as explained by Nvidia, was to optimize the overall experience of the game. For this, they received feedback from testers to optimize the touch controls, menu system and performance of ‘Fortnite’. And, after four months of testing, the general launch is finally happening, with prizes for those who signed up for the beta.
Those interested in immersing themselves in the GeForce Now experience will not only find themselves with ‘Fortnite’. Nvidia claims that its library includes more than 1,300 titles available through a combination of Steam and the Epic Games Store. All they have to do is register, choose the most convenient plan and start playing from the device they want.
Of course, since we are talking about streaming games, the quality of the internet connection is essential. For a good gaming experience in general, a minimum of 15 Mb/s connection is required for 720p resolution at 60 frames per second, and 25 Mb/s for 1080p resolution at 60 frames per second.
