GeForce NOW Games Available on iOS Devices Through Safari, Fortnite Coming Soon

GeForce NOW, NVIDIA's streaming gaming service, today announced the launch of Safari integration, which will bring Fortnite and other games to Apple's iOS devices through the Safari browser.

The new Safari integration is available in a beta capacity, and NVIDIA says that many games in the GeForce NOW library can be played on iOS devices. Using GeForce NOW on an iOS device requires a gamepad, and keyboard and mouse-only games are not available. NVIDIA has a list of recommended gamepads.

NVIDIA is working alongside Epic Games on a touch-friendly version of Fortnite that will run on iOS devices through Safari, so Fortnite is not launching today, but it will be coming soon.

Rumors earlier this month suggested that Fortnite would return to Apple's devices through a partnership with NVIDIA, and when the game launches on the GeForce NOW service, it will be the first time Fortnite has been accessible on iOS devices since the Apple vs. ‌Epic Games‌ dispute kicked off in August.

With GeForce NOW, users must own a game to play it through an iOS device, and streaming is available at up to 1080p and 60 frames per second. More than 750 PC games are supported, and NVIDIA adds new games regularly.

GeForce NOW can be accessed on iPhone or iPad through Safari by visiting the GeForce NOW website. The service is priced at $4.99 per month for a Founders membership, with a 6-month subscription available for $24.95.

I’m sure Apple has written in a clause somewhere that this type of gaming is not permitted. I got my popcorn ready for this one ??
There is no Apple "clause" restricting which sites you can visit on your web browser or what you can do on those sites.

So it’s $50 up front for a game pad plus $60 per year plus the cost of games.

Look at what this means for Fortnite.
Epic told everyone they could save money on in game purchases done directly through them, which required ignoring the rules they agreed to.

Amd their solution to their self-made situation is to make people pay $110 to be able to play a free game?

Yet more proof their fight was not consumer-centric but was just about making more money for themselves.

Did you even read the article?

“NVIDIA is working alongside Epic Games on a touch-friendly version of Fortnite that will run on iOS devices through Safari, so Fortnite is not launching today, but it will be coming soon.”

this would be separate from the subscription based GeForce NOW service.

honestly Apple needs to get their heads out of their asses with this. No one wants to play some crappy Apple Arcade games. The gaming industry WILL find a way around it, so either get on board or get out of the way.

Counterpoint: A lot of the people who will use this, like me, already have the service, a Steam library, and a gamepad. So the added cost to me is $0/mo.

Nice, good work Nvidia. Just a shame their service has been crippled by greedy publishers, blocking games on their platform.
