Nvidia to bring console-style game sharing and more to your PC

Ever wanted to share your PC games with friends like you can on your PS4? Nvidia wants to make that happen for you.

The next version of Nvidia’s GeForce Experience Program will let you share games on your PC, much like on your favorite consoles.

Currently, the GeForce Experience Program helps keep your video drivers up to date and optimzes your graphics settings for the games you like to play. With the upcoming version, however, the program will have an update called Share, which will bring a few new features to PC that will remind you of your consoles – like Nvidia’s new GameStream Co-op feature.

GameStream Co-op mimics the feel of a local multiplayer experience by letting you share the game with a friend online – they can take over your controls and try out your game for themselves, or they can help you when you’re stuck on a hard part, just like PS4’s SharePlay.  Your friend can also play with you in a few supported multi-controller games like Mortal Kombat KompleteTrine 3FIFA 15, NBA 2K15, and Gauntlet

Share also gives you an easy way to record gameplay, has a new in-game overlay, and better tools for broadcasting, making the program great for streamers.

Share launches its early-access beta next month. While it requires streamers to have certain GPUs, their friends joining in the game don’t have a minimum GPU requirement.

Here’s a list of the current minimum required specifications:

  • GPU: GeForce GTX 650 or higher graphics card (Desktop only, notebook support coming soon)
