GeForce Now comes to Safari on iOS, Fortnite on the way

GeForce Now enters beta on iOS

However, it won't be doing so via Apple's official App Store. While I think there are plenty of experiences that still need to be served as packaged apps (i.e. mobile games that run locally), It would be wrong to say it's the best way forward for most experiences nowadays.

There are hundreds of games to choose from, but note you will need a compatible controller to play them.

That's not all though, soon the Chrome browser-based experience for GeForce Now will be available on more platforms. Services like Microsoft's xCloud, Google's Stadia, and Nvidia's GeForce Now are pushing the boundary of what's possible in gaming.

The chip firm said Thursday that it is rolling out a test version of GeForce NOW to Apple's iPhone devices and iPad models. The beta version of this service went live today.

GeForce NOW on iOS Safari requires a gamepad and Nvidia encourages those who don't already have one that they use with their iPhone or iPad to check out its GeForce Now Recommended selection.

However, others are also planning to bring games to Apple's devices by a similar route.

The Cayo Perico Heist comes to GTA Online next month
It is, presumably, new content for Grand Theft Auto Online , but how John Doe and El Rubio will factor in is unknown. Another teaser clip released by Rockstar Games has revealed that this new area is called Cayo Perico.

According to Google, more than 80 games have been added to Stadia over the a year ago, and starting soon, Google will be offering free-to-play content even for non subscribers. But the company is specifically working on a touch version of Fortnite in conjunction with Epic.

By using this workaround, you'll technically be running the PC version of Fortnite. "Members can look for the game on iOS Safari in the near future". In court, Epic tried to portray Apple as a monopoly and Apple practically said that Epic owed it a debt of gratitude for the amount of time and money it spent promoting Fortnite.

The dispute began with Epic's implementation of a direct-pay system into Fortnite.

Apple, therefore, could not take a cut from these purchases.

Apple then removed Fortnite from the App Store for violating its rules, resulting in a long-drawn legal battle with Epic Games.

While Apple's walled garden makes it really hard for companies to bring cloud gaming to iPhones and iPads, alternative solutions keep being discovered, and NVIDIA just came up with a very simple approach.
