As of today, it's possible to play PC games on your Xbox One, Series X or Series S through the power of Nvidia GeForce Now and cloud streaming. Incredible! Plus, it works with your existing library of PC games.
We've cultivated a little guide to help you on your way, so you can begin using Nvidia GeForce Now on your Xbox:
How To Play PC Games With GeForce Now On Xbox
Pick A Membership
First of all, you're going to need an Nvidia GeForce Now account, which you can sign up for in the 'Memberships' section on the GeForce Now website. The Basic account gives you a free membership, but it's limited to only the most basic of features (unsurprisingly) and also only limits you to one-hour play sessions. Still, we suggest starting with this.
Alternatively, you can opt for the Priority or RTX 3080 memberships, which provide much better performance and session lengths. Click 'Join', enter your details, and sign up for your chosen membership tier.
Once you're all signed up, open the Microsoft Edge browser on Xbox and log into your account on the Nvidia GeForce Now website. Then, open up the GeForce Now web client, where you'll be able to pick the game you want to play, as well as link various accounts such as your Steam or Epic Games Store account.
If you have issues with activating the virtual keyboard when signing into Steam, Epic or anything else, the best solution is to plug an actual keyboard into the USB slot. Alternatively, it's possible to sign into your Steam or Epic account with GeForce Now via PC or mobile, and then just quit the app and pick up the session on your console.
Then, all you need to do is start playing! Keep in mind you may need to a wait in a queue when using the free membership, as those who have paid for their subscriptions are given priority before everyone else.
Also, be aware that playing games with a mouse and keyboard is reportedly not the most ideal experience right now (more details in the video above), and you may or may not run into issues with latency. Additionally, PlayStation Studios' Death Stranding isn't currently playable or even searchable on Xbox.
It's not a massively difficult process; it's all about ensuring your account is fully set up and that the games you want to play via the service are supported. Currently, there are over 1000 games that support GeForce Now, so the odds are the majority of games in your PC libraries will work. Give it a try and let us know how you get on!
