Pentanet’s Beta Play program commenced on 22 September 2021, with over 4.7 million minutes (~9 years) played ahead of commercial launch. Almost 20,000 Beta Players actively tested the service across more than 174,000 gaming sessions.

From today, players will be able to experience the amazing visuals of real-time ray tracing streamed with RTX ON via GeForce NOW Powered by Pentanet, using a vast variety of hardware options.

Users will have access to a library of over 1,000 games, and can play them by connecting accounts from popular game stores, including Steam, Epic Games Store, Ubisoft Connect, GOG.COM and more. Players will also have access to almost 100 free-to-play titles included with GeForce NOW Powered by Pentanet.

At launch, players have two membership options: ‘Basic’ and ‘Priority’.
