Nvidia's GRID will soon offer 40 titles, and it will continue to grow with more titles added each week.
GRID is a cloud service that streams games to users of Nvidia's SHIELD products. The games are run completely on cloud servers, which gives users the gaming experience of a powerful system, without needing powerful hardware in the device itself.
The service launched on November 18 with a total of 20 games. Since then, Nvidia has added a new game each week, and as of today it has 38 titles available. Nvidia decided to add games by genre, based off what its customers most wanted to see.
The latest title is Saints Row IV, a 2013 game that was a highly rated success. The game is an open world action adventure, much like the rest of the series. The prequel to Saints Row IV, Saints Row: The Third, was one of the original 20 titles. The popularity of the series led Nvidia to add the title to its list of games.
The next two games coming to the service, Nvidia will add its 39th title, Alan Wake, to the service on February 24. Alan Wake is a psychological survival horror game first released in 2010. In the game, users play as Alan Wake as he attempts to discover what happened to his wife.
For the 40th game title, which will arrive March 3, Nvidia plans to add Metro: Last Light Redux, a post-apocalyptic first-person shooter in which you play as Artyom, fighting mutants and humans alike as you try to survive in a harsh world.
With the ever-growing list of top-rated games, Nvidia hopes to attract new customers to its SHIELD gaming devices. Currently, there are two SHIELD devices available: the SHIELD Tablet, which comes with a detached controller, and the SHIELD Portable, which combines the tablet and controller into a single device.
Currently, the service is free to all users who own a SHIELD device. However, the free service ends June 30 of this year; at that point, Nvidia plans to start charging for GRID, but a final price has not yet been set.
