NVIDIA has officially announced the next round of games coming to its GeForce NOW service, and it includes Die by the Blade, a new release that will test your sword fighting skills and your will to survive. GeForce NOW for the uninitiated is a cloud gaming service that lets you stream your PC games over the internet. These are games you own on Steam, the Epic Games Store, Ubisoft Connect, and other stores, and GeForce NOW acts as an intermediary that allows you to connect to those clients to play the games.

This way you don’t have to have them installed on your device. It’s great for anyone who doesn’t have a powerful PC or just a PC that’s good for gaming. It’s also great for anyone who wants to play games on their Android or iOS device. Playing your PC games via GeForce NOW on your smartphone is perhaps one of the best use cases we can think of. I’ve been using GeForce NOW for years and playing games through the Android app is how I use the service most of the time. Because it’s so easy to fire up a game wherever you are, as long as your phone has an internet connection.

Die by the Blade and four more games are coming to GeForce NOW

There’s something about the thrill of samurai sword fights in games that gets your blood pumping. Ghost of Tsushima, Rise of the Ronin and countless other games give you a taste of what this feels like. And now Die by the Blade comes to GeForce this week to raise the bar even higher. This is a 1v1 sword fighting game with a ‘Samuraipunk’ theme where you have to defeat your enemies. The catch is that you have to be quick in Die by the Blade.

Very quick. Because battles are one-hit-kill. There is no room for mistakes if you want to get out alive. Without health bars, any attack attempt your opponent makes could be the one that kills you. Your only hope of survival is to avoid or parry these attacks and be the first to attack. To the victor goes the spoils. Fight with honor, die with honor. This is a new release on Steam from May 16th and costs just $20. So not a bad pick-up.

In addition to Die by the Blade, GeForce NOW also gets Men of War II (a new release from May 15), Colony Survival, Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition (Xbox via Game Pass) and Palworld.

Check out games you might have missed

While this week’s list of newly added games is small, don’t forget that some excellent options were dropped last week. If you missed the new additions from May 9, one of those new games is Honkai: Star Rail. A much sought-after turn-based RPG from the makers of Genshin Impact. Yes, if you’re playing the PC version of the game, you can NOW finally play it on GeForce. And just like Genshin Impact, it supports cross-progression. So you can play on PC, then switch to the Android or iOS versions and play natively on your phone. That’s pretty cool.

Little Kitty Big City, Farmers Life and Supermarket Simulator were also added last week.
