I bought Far Cry 5 on a Steam sale and thought it would be a great test to see how GeForce Now would handle a high end game over the internet. I was already about mid way through the game when I decided to try this little test so you will see in the footage that my character is pretty much armed to the teeth. I made 3 videos on various types of Far Cry 5 gameplay. Below are the videos links to each.
Silent Hostage Rescue
For the first video showcase, I engage in a nighttime hostage rescue where you cannot let the enemy know that you are there. This was a two part mission where you had to rescue the individuals from the house then rescue the hostages on the bridge. I do believe I handled things pretty well. GeForce Now had some studdering here and there but nothing overly frustrating. The studdering was infrequent enough to brush off my shoulders.
After the hostage rescue mission, I decided to check out the bridge I happen to be on. Oh man was this a happening bridge! Random enemy activity happened on both ends. Had a fun time stopping “The Cult” from doing what ever they were doing to everyone in the game. Had a blast taking out helicopters and the such. Take a look!
Undetected Base Raid
Last but not least is this base raid which I accidentally stumbled upon. I was first trying to tackle this tower mission but ending up taking out the Cult base which looked like it had some kind of “Youth Camp”. So I just had to ruin their day. Not only did I take it out, I did it – undetected.
All in all, Far Cry 5 plays very well on GeForce Now. I had some 2-3 second studders as you might have noticed every 10 minutes or so. I was playing on the free version so I also only got 1080p. I will revisit Far Cry 5 on GeForce Now again once I upgrade to the Founders edition to how well that would improve performance.
