Fallout returns to Nvidia GeForce Now, just in time for TV show

Both Fallout 4 and 76 are now available to stream from the cloud, coinciding with the premiere of the Amazon series based on the game.

If you’re less of a vault dweller and more of a wanderer, be it of wastelands or more hospitable climates, cloud gaming services like Nvidia GeForce Now can prove an invaluable tool to get your gaming fix, providing the games you want to play are available. Wandering fans of Fallout have reason to rejoice then, as games from the series make their return to the cloud following a prolonged period of absence.

While all the games in the Fallout series are perfectly playable on the go using the best handheld gaming PC, it’s not the prettiest or highest performing way to experience the worlds crafted by Black Isle or Bethesda. Providing you have a reliable internet connection, the Nvidia GeForce Now experience can make the games look their absolute best whatever hardware you’re using.

Undoubtedly spurred by the release of the Fallout TV show, Nvidia has announced that both Fallout 4 and Fallout 76 are now playable via GeForce Now. This marks the first time either game has been available to stream since Bethesda pulled its games from Nvidia’s cloud platform back in February 2020.

You’ll, of course, need to already own either game or have an active PC Game Pass subscription to play them on GeForce Now. The service itself is free to use, but premium tiers naturally provide a more premium experience, with higher resolutions and frame rates.

For the patient among us, a new Fallout 4 update is scheduled to land in the coming weeks that will bring long overdue PC bonuses, including ultrawide monitor support. Bethesda says the game will also go from ‘Playable’ to ‘Verified’ on Steam Deck, which is a welcome change.

If all this talk of Fallout has you excited to explore the series for the first time, or as a returning raider, give our deep dive into the making of Fallout a read. We also recommend giving our GeForce Now review a look, while noting that the service now also offers RTX 40 series servers.
