GeForce Now, Nvidia's cloud gaming service, begins beta testing on PC

And if you already own supported games on platforms like Steam, you can load those up instantly without having to pay extra. Nvidia claims there are "a total of 15 filters with 38 different settings".

Probably the biggest new feature of the GeForce Experience is Nvidia Freestyle.

"Indeed, Nvidia claims Freestyle is mostly meant to serve as an outlet for creativity, citing examples like "[creating] a retro war-themed filter for your favorite FPS or [enhancing] color and contrast to make a game look more photorealistic" as possible uses for the new feature. To put it simply, its an app that connects to Nvidia's cloud computers and lets gamers stream games at max settings without any problems.

Examples of usage include applying the retro themed filter to your favourite WWII FPS game, or on a more serious note helping people who are colour-blind to recognise different colours - sometimes that's important. Gamers can even use night mode, which reduces blue color so users can sleep better after a night of gaming. At launch, Freestyle game filters beta will support for over 100 game titles. After PUBG, Fortnite is the second BR game to receive Shadowplay Highlights support. Additionally, we're announcing support for two new Highlights titles, including Crossout and Elex. Most of the filters change the aesthetic of the game, but there is a filter for colorblind players as well which may make it more than just a gimmick. In addition, Ansel is getting an easier time to control with a handful of user interface tweaks, as well as new filters and filter combinations for a truly unique look to your in-game screenshots.

Ansel has refreshed Photo Mode controls, eight new filters and the ability to combine multiple filters.

NVIDIA's BFGDs are set to arrive later this year, GeForce NOW is available, well, now, and the FreeStyle and Ansel improvements arrive this Tuesday in beta mode.

Nvidia claims the cloud gaming service can stream games with a resolution of 1920x1080 at up to 120 Hz, depending on the level of service requested and the constraints of the end user's PC and internet connection.

You need to enable "Enable Experimental Features" in the GeForce Experience client after driver installation to enable the feature.
