GFN Thursday Banner for May 25

The last Thursday of May is upon us, which means it’s the last GFN Thursday of May as well. And, what a game-packed GFN Thursday it is! No less than a full dozen games arrive on the service this week.

The pack is lead by 3 Xbox Studios titles: Deathloop, Pentiment, and Grounded. These titles were announced as coming to the service last week after Gears 5 became the first Xbox title to join GeForce NOW.

New GFN Games

Below are the 12 games arriving on GeForce NOW this week. Note that our game pages have been recently updated with trailers, related articles and links directly to the individual cloud game launcher page.

The first three titles on the list actually went live earlier this week. We have fallen in love with Planet of Lana here at the Cloud Dosage virtual studios.

Railway Empire 2, Warhammer 40,000: Boltgun, Lawn Mowing Simulator and The Ascent are all other notable additions with significant fan followings.

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum Arrives

The most anticipated newly released game to arrive on GFN this week has certainly got to be The Lord of the Rings: Gollum.

The game is a single-player linear adventure/platformer. The title touts story driven action where you play as Gollum on a quest in Middle Earth to retrieve the ring of power. The gameplay features Gollum’s split personality, which fans of the movie series will certainly remember.

Early reviews of the game on Metacritic are not being very kind to the title. We will see how these reviews evolve over the next 24 hours. We’ll be reviewing the game ourselves over the weekend. And, we always recommend that gamers ultimately make their own decisions about whether a game is for them or not.
