Share article

Some of the most anticipated games of the year, like the Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty expansion, PAYDAY 3, and Party Animals, are dropping into the GeForce NOW Powered by ABYA library at launch this month.

They’re part of 24 new games hitting the cloud gaming service in September. And the next Game Pass title to join the cloud at launch is Sea of Stars, part of 13 new games this week.

Keep an eye on GFN Thursday to see the next Microsoft titles joining the cloud this month, including Quake II, Gears Tactics, and Halo Infinite.

Party Hard in the Cloud


The cloud is about to get wild.

Make painfully great memories with friends in Party Animals, a hilarious, physics-based party brawler from Recreate Games and Source Technology. Fight friends as adorable puppies, mischievous kittens, magical unicorns, or other fuzzy creatures, or terrorize them as fearsome sharks and ferocious dinosaurs to be the last one standing.

Battle it out by picking up an assortment of weapons to get an edge over others or punch, toss, jump, kick, and headbutt others in the brawl. Bring the action across multiple game modes — each requires a different strategy to win.

Get fierce for party game night, whether playing with friends locally on the couch or across devices online. Party Animals joins the cloud at launch on Thursday, Sept. 21.

New Games as Far as the Eye Can Sea


New games come each week, and this week’s batch includes Sea of Stars from Sabotage Studio. A retro-inspired role-playing game drawing from classics like Chrono Trigger, it features a vibrant world, a dynamic combat system, and a story of cosmic proportions. Play as two Children of the Solstice, who combine the powers of the sun and moon to perform Eclipse Magic, the only force capable of fending off the monstrous creations of an evil alchemist known as the Fleshmancer. Sea of Stars is now available for members to stream from the cloud via Game Pass or Steam.
