The energy update will be rolled out in multiple waves starting on October 26. Shadow offers its users access to a virtual PC in the cloud that runs any application. The new configuration includes an AMD Epyc 7543P CPU with quad cores and 16 gigabytes of RAM. To make the service suitable for gaming, Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 cards and AMD GPUs with RDNA 2 architecture are available, including the Radeon Pro V620. Shadow is compatible with PCs, smartphones, smart TVs, and virtual reality glasses.
Shadow cloud gaming service now available in Germany
Early access starts in early October
While a regular Shadow membership costs €29.99 per month, the Power Upgrade costs an additional €14.99 per month. If you want to use the service during the early access phase at the beginning of October, you only have to pay 9.99 euros. Starting on September 20, there will be an opportunity to pre-order the power upgrade. The service is currently available in France, the US, Germany, the UK, Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, and Switzerland. Shadow will also be available in Austria and Canada on September 15. Italy, Spain, Denmark and Sweden will join in the fall.
Unlike game streaming services like Google Stadia and Xbox Cloud Gaming, Shadow offers a full remote PC. Not only games but also other applications can be launched in the cloud and streamed to any device. In a demo shown at Gamescom, the technology worked flawlessly. Aside from occasional micro stutters, likely due to the network connection, there were no noticeable lags during gameplay.
