More evidence is coming to light that whatever Nvidia is likely to announce at GDC 2015 has something to do with their gaming when needed service GRID. Today Nvidia has announced there is a total of 40 titles on GRID soon. In fact the following three titles which will push the GRID catalog to 40 are some rather big games.
Nvidia continues to be releasing a game per week for his or her GRID service which originally started back on November 18th, 2014 where it launched with 20 games. Since that time the catalog for available GRID games has slowly been increasing and at this time we are sitting at 37 titles.The next three weeks will discover a new game each week as per usual but the exact day that the big 40 mark is hit is the same day as Nvidia’s GDC press event, on that day being March 3rd. Coincidence? Doubtful.
A lot of individuals are expecting something VR related to be announced throughout the event, which still could very well happen. But because we get closer to the press event it seems that the focus is beginning to appear more and more like a GRID-based announcement which means that set-top box idea we were talking about yesterday may be a real possibility. Or at least some kind of hardware focused on providing GRID to more and more people or releasing the plan to non-Shield branded Android devices.
Whatever the situation might be, this upcoming Nvidia announcement is starting to look much more interesting. When it comes to games heading our excess of the next three weeks to push GRID as much as 40 titles, you will probably see Saints Row IV, Alan Wake, and Metro Last Light Redux appearing on GRID. Today Saints Row IV will be showing up on GRID, accompanied by Alan Wake on February 24th, and Metro Last Light Redux will arrive on March 3rd.
We is going to be going into additional information about the 3 games in upcoming reviews within the next week.
