The shooter includes a story campaign that can be played both solo and in co-op as well as a range of PvE and PvP modes.
Following Gears 5, more titles from Xbox Game Studios and Bethesda Softworks will debut in GeForce Now, starting May 25 with shooter Deathloop, survival sim Grounded, and RPG detective Pentiment.
