Shadow, the first gaming PC “in the cloud” offers more power to
its users. Holding to its promise, Shadow offers the best gaming configurations possible, without having to buy an expensive “gaming PC” which can quickly go obsolete.
With Shadow, it is possible to play all your video games, even the latest releases, from any device (computer, smartphone, television, iPad…). And to better serve the gaming community, Shadow has announced a new subscription offering and servers, which sees the use of ray tracing technology combined with the power of GeForce RTX 2080 and TITAN graphics cards. These alone would cost gamers the price of an entire PC!
To make gaming accessible to as many people as possible, Shadow is now offering three new complementary pre-order offers (for the first 50,000 users):
- Boost – at £12.99 per month (£14.99 without commitment), this highly accessible offer allows subscribers to play all the latest games in Full HD from any device.
- Ultra – at £24.99 per month (£29.99 without commitment), gamers are offered the possibility to play with superior graphic performance(s) in 4K, up to 144 FPS in Full HD with ray tracing compatibility. This offer provides the power of a GeForce RTX 2080 graphics card, but also the power of a better processor, more RAM and more storage.
- Infinite – at £39.99 per month (£49.99 without commitment), Infinite grants the most demanding gamers, streamers and creators direct access to the “best available” on the market: a dream computer including ray-tracing combined with the top graphics card at the moment (RTX Titan), and 1TB of storage. With this dream line-up, users will be able to play all the latest games in 4K.
These new Shadow offers are available for pre-order as of October 29th on the Shadow website. Users who pre-order throughout November can benefit from the new Shadow beginning in February 2020 and will be activated on a “first come, first serve” basis.
The Computer of the Future
Current Shadow users are also invited to choose the subscription of their choice today. They will also be able to benefit from their chosen offer this February. Shadow combines the power of a PC with the simplicity of a console. Having mastered their computer version, Shadow now announces a television version. This offers subscribers a brand-new application compatible with Smart TV and Android.
A redesigned, clearer, more intuitive interface allows Shadow to adapt any PC game to the living room screen. With this new Shadow app, users will be able to easily access any of the games on their PC. All the while comfortably seated on their sofa. Everything can be controlled with any compatible controller, just like a console!
With access to such power, and thanks to its technological capabilities (latency, stability, etc.), Shadow breaks all the limits of gaming and opens new perspectives, PC gaming on TV, on mobile… and tomorrow in VR! No more cumbersome and constraining installations, big PC towers and tangled wires.
Shadow: The Computer of the Future Pricing
Emmanuel Freund, the co-founder of Shadow, explained:
“We were the first to show that cloud gaming works. Other actors have followed us. It is up to us to show that we remain, pioneers, innovative, at the cutting edge of technology. Also, proud to carry the values of a French start-up to the world”.
Furthermore, to support the launch of these offers, Shadow has raised an additional €30 million. Also, the company continues to work closely with its historical technological partners. Including Nvidia, Intel, Microsoft, 2CRSi and Ericsson.
