NVIDIA’s GRID service is, as of now, a promise, a dream of Netflix-like on-demand streaming aimed at ushering in the next big frontier of gaming. The service only launched with 20 games, limiting GRID’s reach and draw, though that’s still pretty compelling considering it’s still free. A lot of these games were old, too, further limiting what is otherwise an exciting idea. That’s all changing as of today.
NVIDIA on Tuesday announced the service’s library will soon reach the 40 mark, with a variety of titles including Saints Row IV, Alan Wake and Metro Last Light Redux building it up top that mile marker.
Saints Row IV is being added today, with the other two titles being added over the next few weeks. Alan Wake lands on Feb. 24 and Metro Last Light Redux hits March 3. That should give you a chance to beat Volition’s wacky open world fun factory before jumping into the dark world of Alan Wake.
GRID might be relatively limited by its smaller library, but it’s always expanding, and today’s news shows that NVIDIA is committed to growing the service. It’s a great perk for SHIELD owners, that’s for sure, taking a familiar method of distribution and bringing it directly to gamers. Titles currently available through the service including Batman: Arkham City, Dead Island, Darksiders and Borderlands 2.
