From an NVIDIA blog post:
NVIDIA and Microsoft have been working together to bring the first Xbox PC titles to the GeForce NOW library. With their gaming fueled by GeForce GPU servers in the cloud, members can access the best of Xbox Game Studios and Bethesda titles across nearly any device, including underpowered PCs, Macs, iOS and Android mobile devices, NVIDIA SHIELD TV, supported smart TVs and more.
Gears 5 from The Coalition is the first PC title from Xbox Game Studios to hit GeForce NOW. The latest entry in the Gears saga includes an acclaimed campaign playable solo or cooperatively, plus a variety of PvE and PvP modes to team up and battle in.
More Microsoft titles will follow shortly, starting with Deathloop, Grounded and Pentiment on Thursday, May 25.
