NVIDIA GeForce NOW Brings RTX-Powered Cloud Gaming To Australia Next Week

Australia’s own gaming-focussed internet provider, Pentanet, has announced that it’s bringing GeForce NOW in partnership with NVIDIA to Aussie shores on October 19.

After beta testing started in September, Pentanet has seen over 100,000 cloud gaming sessions with GeForce NOW equalling up to 3 million minutes of play, and now it’s ready to bring the service to gamers across the country.

At launch, GeForce NOW Powered by Pentanet will offer over 1,000 games through the service by connecting users’ existing platform accounts like Steam, Epic Games Store and GOG to play the games they own via cloud streaming with RTX enabled. There will also be over 100 free-to-play games on the service.

The ‘Priority’ version of the service will grant users access to the full power of RTX when streaming games, as well as extended play sessions and priority queuing, while the ‘Basic’ membership will be available for a limited time for users to check out the service for free, albeit limited to one-hour sessions and without RTX features.

To celebrate the launch, Pentanet is offering limited Founders Priority pricing. From 5pm AWST, users can claim a Priority membership for AU$19.99 per month on a month-to-month subscription or a discounted rate of AU$17.99 per month for a 12-month subscription.
