Launched earlier this year, Nvidia’s GRID game streaming service allows you to play PC titles on Shield devices. The service was originally meant to be free until the end of June, but Nvidia said that it would be extending the date to the end of July. Now, it looks like the service has received another extension, allowing you to stream games from the cloud for free until the end of September.
That’s according to the GRID homepage, which mentions the end of September as the date the trial ends. In addition to the 56 titles that are available to stream from the cloud, which include the likes of Alan Wake, Batman: Arkham Origins, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, Moto GP14, GRID 2, DIRT 3 and Borderlands, the service lets you stream games stored on your PC through GameStream, with over 200 titles currently supported. All you need to stream is an Nvidia video card (anything above the GeForce GTX 650 should be adequate)
Once Nvidia starts charging for GRID, it will do so in a tiered format, with the premium tier giving you access to the latest AAA titles in full-HD at 60fps, while the basic tier is limited to 720p at 30fps.
