Electric cars are becoming more advanced and connected to the internet, so it’s no wonder you can game on the go too. That’s the thinking of Nvidia, which is now launching GeForce NOW, initially in Polestar, Hyundai and BYD.
The gaming service is cloud-based and, in cars that have Nvidia’s Drive platform integrated, can be connected to the cloud for in-car gaming. Passengers in the back seat can download a range of free games and play as much as they like, while the two in the front seats can only play when the car is stationary. For example, while parked to charge.
The only prerequisite is that you have connected screens in the rear seats as well as screens in the dashboard at the front.
GeForce NOW is supported in Polestar 3 and Chinese BYD models, as well as in newer models from Hyundai, Kia and Genesis, all three part of the Hyundai Motor Group.
Nvidia’s GeForce NOW runs on the car’s Android operating system and offers over 1,000 game titles, including A Plague Tale, Requiem, The Witcher 3, Wild Hunt and Cyberpunk 2077, and the games are available in the Steam store, Electronic Arts app, Ubisoft , Epic Games Store and on GOG.com.
Games like Fortnite, Lost Ark and Destiny 2 can be played for free in the car.
