Most of 2022 has seen Fortnite available on GeForce Now, free for all users. For a limited time, users will be able to claim a special reward just by playing the game like they normally do. On top of that, a few games come to Xbox Cloud Gaming to fill out its catalog, including Watch Dogs 2.
Fortnite rewards on GeForce Now
As most are very well aware, Fortnite is completely free and available for anyone to play. When the game came to GeForce Now and even Xbox Cloud Gaming recently, even more players found themselves able to play no matter what device they chose to do it on.
Now, Fortnite and GeForce Now have teamed up to dole out a cool reward for anyone who plays between today and August 4. Players who join a match and jump off that bus will be able to claim a free new “Dish-troyer Pickaxe.”
The Fortnite and GeForce Now reward has no limitation as far as membership goes, meaning the highest tier GeForce Now member will see the same reward as a free member. The device you play on also has no bearing on whether or not you get the new reward, as long as you’re playing through GeForce Now.
Additionally, GeForce Now is adding more compatible games to its library:
- Hell Pie (New Release on Steam and Epic Games Store, July 21)
- Endling – Extinction is Forever (New Release on Steam and Epic Games Store)
- Hazel Sky (New Release on Steam and Epic Games Store)
- TombStar (New Release on Steam)
- Curious Expedition 2 (Epic Games Store)
- Darksiders Genesis (Epic Games Store)
- Dungeon Defenders: Going Rogue (Steam)
- Wildermyth (Epic Games Store)
- Outward Definitive Edition (Epic Games Store)
GeForce Now adding 120fps gaming on mobile
As an impressive update for Android users running GeForce Now on their devices, Nvidia recently announced the addition and support of 120fps gaming on all Android devices going forward. Previously, this perk was only available for a few select models.
The requirements are minimal; as long as users have a device with a 120Hz and a decent internet connection, they should see 120fps during normal gameplay. To add, playing on the GeForce Now Android app will give the best experience in comparison to playing through Nvidia’s website. Either way, now you can grab Fortnite’s new reward with GeForce Now, tearing down tress in 120fps.
