Anyone who’s been around PC gaming long enough has heard the age-old question: Can it run Crysis? The classic title had a reputation for putting even the most hardcore of systems to the test, and the arrival of Crysis Remastered and the Crysis Remastered Trilogy is giving modern machines a similar challenge. But NVIDIA’s GeForce NOW makes answering the question a simple “yes” for just about any device you game on.

GeForce NOW is a cloud gaming service that puts high-performance hardware at your fingertips without you needing to plunk down the cash for your own gaming rig. With GeForce NOW, you can access over 1,000 games, including over 90 free-to-play titles, and play them on your phone, tablet, PC, Mac, Chromebook, Chrome browser, and even on some smart TV platforms. 

GeForce NOW lets you play games you already own from popular game stores like Steam, UPlay, Epic Games Store, and GOG.com. That makes the opportunity to play the freshly released Crysis Remastered Trilogy on Epic Games Store ripe for GeForce NOW.

The Crysis Remastered Trilogy takes the classic series and breathes new life into it with updated technology from improved lighting to enhanced character models, weapons, and environments as well as higher-definition textures. 

Where the original series pushed the systems of the time to their limits, the new game can do the same for modern game platforms. With GeForce NOW, you won’t have to worry about whether your system is powerful enough to run the game smoothly. With a strong internet connection, you can stream the game to hardware that you would never have dreamed of gaming on. 

On top of that, GeForce NOW subscribers who get the premium tier of service for $9.99/month not only can jump into the game faster and play longer, but they get to enjoy the game with even further enhanced graphics through DLSS and RTX real-time ray tracing, which is the holy grail of realistic lighting technology.

With real-time ray tracing, the game is actually simulating the path of light rays from light sources to create extremely realistic reflections and shadows. With this added sense of realism you can get further immersed in games as they become ever more lifelike. Since ray-tracing is an incredibly demanding technology in games, it’s all the better that you can simply rely on NVIDIA’s cloud hardware to handle all the processing for you.

You can sign-up for free to see if it’s for you and upgrade to the premium tier for priority access to servers, longer play sessions, and the ability to go RTX On in select games.
