GeForce Now, a cloud gaming service that lets you stream/play games right off the cloud on the device of your choice has hit its next roadblock. Bethesda, the company behind games like DOOM, Prey, Dishonored and Skyrim have decided to pull out their games from the library of Nvidia Now. All Bethesda games with the exception of Wolfenstein Young Blood will be pulled from the service.

Bethesda follows Blizzard/Activision in pulling their games from the service. Ever since the Nvidia Now service has exited its beta and entered a full release, it has been running into such issues. As announced in a blog-post, first noted by the Verge, Phil Eisler, vice president of GeForce Now, published a blog post yesterday, writing that publishers “maintain control over their content and decide whether the game you purchase includes streaming on GeForce NOW.” He also suggested that some publishers may be returning games to the service, though they didn’t specify which studios or in what time frame. Phil also added that “Game removals should be few and far between, with new games added to GeForce NOW each week,”.

Its believed that Bethesda pulled out of the deal because of disputes over how the model works. The GeForce Now service allows subscribers to buy games on other platforms, like Steam, and use them on GeForce Now. Unlike say Stadia, where the game needs to be bought on the Stadia marketplace to be playable, irrespective of the fact that you already game on Steam or Unreal Engine.

If you want to find out how good GeForce Now is, you can now get into the Free Tier, which offers up to 1 hours of cloud gameplay on the device of your choice over any game that is available on its service and is owned by you on Steam and in some cases the Epic Game Store. It’s definitely one of the most consumer-friendly of the cloud gaming service, but can be a little to understand at first glance. We will have a review for the platform out soon. Until then let us know what you think of GeForce Now in the comments.
