Shadow, the popular cloud-gaming service, announced two new plans today, giving you access to some of the most powerful gaming PCs money can buy. The new offers, Shadow Ultra and Shadow Infinite, will provide you with remote access to rigs with a GeForce RTX 2080 and Titan RTX, respectively.
Shadow’s current plan has been rebranded as Shadow Boost and will cost $11.99 per month. Here’s what Shadow Ultra and Shadow Infinite bring to the table:
- GeForce RTX 2080 (Or Equivalent)
- 4 GHz – 4 Cores (Or Equivalent)
- 4K + Ray Tracing
- 16GB RAM
- 512GB Storage
- Titan RTX (Or Equivalent)
- 4 GHz – 6 Cores (Or Equivalent)
- 32 GB RAM
- 1TB Storage
Shadow Boost, the base service, gives you access to a GTX 1080, 12GB RAM, and 256GB of Storage for just $11.99/month. Ultra and Infinite will be rolled out across the country in waves, starting in Chicago by the end of November and moving to Texas, California, and New York in the following months.
The streaming service provided by Shadow is a bit different from most others on the market. Instead of giving you access to a specific platform, Shadow gives you remote access to an agnostic Windows 10 computer. That means you can play any games from any services – just download them to your remote rig and they’re ready to go. As long as they run on Windows 10, they’re compatible with Shadow.
Shadow is available on a variety of devices. From smartphones and laptops to computers and even TVs, as long as you have internet you’ll have access to your entire library of games and a superpowered computer.
To put the monthly costs in to perspective, a Titan RTX alone costs $2500 – and is almost always out of stock. Shadow might be a great, affordable alternative to building your own gaming rig if you live in a region with stable internet.
We’re currently in the process of running Shadow through its paces. Check back in a few weeks for our full review.
