New World’s cloud debut is on… GeForce Now?

New World is available on Steam for $39.99.
Other new games on GeForce Now this week include:
- Disciples: Liberation (new game launch on Steam and Epic Games Store)
- ELYON (new game launch on Steam)
- Riders Republic (“Trial Week” on Ubisoft Connect)
- Rise of the Tomb Raider 20 Year Celebration (new game launch on Epic Games Store)
- Sword and Fairy 7 (new game launch on Steam)
- The Forgotten City (Steam and Epic Games Store)
- Legend of Keepers (Steam and Epic Games Store)
- New World (Steam)
- Townscaper (Steam)
