GeForce NOW games on sale
A GeForce NOW membership (free for three months and $7.99 a month after that) allows SHIELD owners to stream a variety of games directly to their device via the cloud. Certain premium titles are also available to purchase separately such as the following games.
Mad Max (66% off on GeForce NOW—also comes with PC code to download the game)
Based on the popular sci-fi film franchise by the same name, Mad Max the game tasks players with exploring and defeating enemies in the open-world wastelands with the aid of your trusty car, which you can outfit with upgrades, weapons, and accessories. Vehicular travel and combat is a huge part of Mad Max, which offers up a very different atmosphere compared to other open-world adventure games. You don't have to know a single thing about the film series to enjoy the game, though there's plenty here for fans to appreciate, too.
The Wolf Among Us (50% off on GeForce NOW—also comes with PC code to download the game)
Sheriff Bigby Wolf has his work cut out for him in Wolf Among Us, a critically acclaimed adventure title from Telltale Games. This interactive story, which takes place in the Fables comic universe, features thick-lined graphics and purposefully grimy colors that perfectly frame the sad, intriguing world of the Fables, exiled heroes and monsters from classic fairy tales.
Day of the Tentacle Remastered(10% off on GeForce NOW—also comes with PC code to download the game)
Now's an excellent time to revisit this sequel to the beloved adventure game, Maniac Mansion.
