Latest GeForce NOW update brings Ubisoft Connect account linkage and improved PC gaming on Mac

Get into the game faster with the latest GeForce NOW update rolling out this GFN Thursday.

Learn more about our latest app update – featuring Ubisoft Connect account link for faster game launch times – now rolling out to members and the six new games adding to the GeForce NOW library.

The update also improves the streaming experience on Mac. So this GFN Thursday also takes a look at how GeForce NOW is transforming Macs into powerful PC gaming rigs.

Streamline your registration
The latest GeForce NOW app update will roll out to members on PC and Mac starting this week. Version 2.0.36 includes a new feature that links NVIDIA and Ubisoft accounts so that Ubisoft Connect games can be launched faster by automatically logging into a user’s account. Skip the login process and stream your favorite Ubisoft games this week.

The update also includes a fix for streaming in the correct aspect ratio on the Apple MacBook Pro M1 Max, as well as improvements to the countdown timer when viewed on the in-game overlay.

PC gaming on a Mac? That is how it works
It used to be a tough choice: do you want to be a Mac user or a PC gamer? With GeForce NOW you can game on both a Mac and a PC.

GeForce NOW turns virtually any Mac into a high-end gaming rig, thanks to the power of the cloud. NVIDIA data centers do the heavy lifting, rendering games in full quality and streaming them to a Macbook Pro, Macbook Air, iMac and iOS. Enjoy all the benefits of PC gaming without leaving the Apple ecosystem.

On GeForce NOW, you can play the real PC versions of your games, without having to worry about whether anything has been ported to Mac. Software compatibility for the new M1 Mac isn’t an issue either, as the native PC version of games is streamed directly from the cloud.

GeForce NOW also handles game saves for supported games, so members can play on their Macs, as well as other supported devices, without losing progress.

This means that the next time your team gets ready in Apex Legends, you can join the fray from your iMac. Jealous of your friends building their ultimate Viking community in Valheim? With GeForce NOW, you can join them without leaving your Mac. Build your game library with weekly free games from the Epic Games Store, with offers like Dead By Daylight.

In addition, GeForce NOW RTX 3080 members can now play in native resolution on their M1 Macbook Air or Macbook Pro, in glorious 1600p. Stream with even longer session lengths – up to eight hours. And with RTX ON for both RTX 3080 and Priority members, you’ll experience games like Cyberpunk 2077 and Control with real-time ray tracing, without having to upgrade to a PC.

Playing PC games with GeForce NOW on a Mac is like having the cake and eating it too.

Drop by start, collect new games
GFN Thursday always means new games are coming to the cloud. Six titles will be added to the GeForce NOW library this week, including two day-and-date releases:
• White Shadows (new game launch on Steam, December 7)
• Monopoly Madness (new game launch on Ubisoft Connect, December 9)
• Anno 1404 History Edition (Free on Ubisoft Connect from December 6 to 14)
• Prison Architect (Free on the Epic Games Store from December 9 to 16)
• Super Magbot (Steam)
• Untitled Goose Game (Epic Games Store)
We do our very best to launch games on GeForce NOW as close to their release as possible, but in some cases games may not be available immediately.

Incidentally, both Syberia: The World Before and A-Train: All Aboard! Add tourism in December. However, these games have moved their release date to next year and will be coming to the cloud in the future.
