Its become apparent that a good number of elite dangerous console commanders who wish to play Odyssey but cant, because they dont own a powerful enough PC or simply dont own, a PC at all, dont realize that there is another option that may possibly be open to them. There is a caveat to this solution. You will need a really decent internet connection, but it is a genuinely viable option to carry on into the Next Generation. If thats available to you, the solution were discussing today is nvidias GeForce, now game streaming service, if youre not familiar with GeForce now or the concept of game streaming, then its actually quite simple. When you use GeForce now to play a game, your game is actually running on a PC in the cloud and a video stream of what you would be seeing where you sat at that PC is sent to you via the Internet.
Instead, your control inputs are transmitted back into the cloud, and this allows you to play the game remotely, because the cloud based PC is shouldering the burden of actually running the game. The specifications of the device at the players end, which is in essence just streaming a video, can be extremely low by comparison. Geforce now supports the following platforms: Mac, OS 10.11 or higher Windows, PC running Windows, 7 or higher Chrome, OS, Nvidia Shield, TV, the Chrome browser or Microsoft edge, browser, an Android phone or tablet iPhone or iPad Android TV and some Samsung or LG Smart TVs. For its connection to the internet, GeForce now requires at least 15 megabits per second for 720p at 60 FPS and 25 megabits per second for 1080p at 60fps. The service does Sport a free option that offers just a one hour gaming slot per session. So you can, at the very least, try it out without committing to further expense, but for serious use. It benefits from a subscription of 8 pounds 99 a month that will give you a maximum six hour slot per gaming session at up to 1080P and 60 FPS. There is a more expensive option that will give you an eight hour slot, with up to 4K resolution and 120 frames per second on an Nvidia 3080 graphics card that comes in at 17 pounds 99 a month. Frontier is still offering their free account copy from console to the PC side, as weve mentioned on this channel before that copy is completely consequence free for the console account.
It is a copy, not a transfer. The road to this point in odysseys life has without a doubt, been lined with pain, coupled with the expansions problems at launch. The loss of consoles into the next generation of the game came as a significant Hammer blow, but speaking from our own experiences, Odyssey is now a great addition to the elite, dangerous experience and the opportunity to play on PC with some of our formerly console. Only friends in the community without them owning a PC, has been fantastic. If you have the bandwidth and access to one of the supported platforms and think GeForce now might offer a solution that could work for you get your account copied onto steam, link your GeForce now and steam accounts, and you can give the system a go for free And decide if it works for you to get started, youll find everything you need Linked In the description below this video thats it for now, thanks very much for watching.
