Nvidia Shield Console wasn’t the only announcement today at GDC 2015. The American based company also announced their own game streaming service called GRID. This service will allow the users to stream games on 1080p resolution @60 frames per second. GRID will work an a very amazing way, it will allow the users to purchase PC games through Steam and then stream them on the console. However, like all good things, this comes with a monthly fee. Nvidia is planning on launching this service in May.
Apart from that, Nvidia also showcased a number of new and upcoming titles that will be coming on Nvidia Shield Console. Few of the names include; Batman: Arkham Knight, Dying Light, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. According to Nvidia, the premium tier subscription will allow you to play the games as soon as they are available, this means you won’t have to download them and stream them right away. Below is an example of how GRID works.
Nvidia also stated that the company will be bringing 50 titles when the service gets launched in May. These titles will bring the recent games such as Devil May Cry reboot, Vanishing of Ethan Carter, Lego Batman, Dead Rising 2 and several more. Nvidia didn’t announce the prices for the subscription tiers but the tiers will be available in 720p and 1080p. You’ll also get the ability to purchase the game straightaway. Nvidia also announced that the basic 720p streaming is free through June 30.
