By William O'Neal - Thu, Oct 6, 2016

This Week on SHIELD, we’re showcasing the GeForce NOW game Hitman Absolution, the new HBO series "Westworld" on HBO NOW, the Redbull.tv app, and "Spectre" on Epix.

Of course, we also want to know what’s on YOUR SHIELD, so hit us up on Twitter with the hashtag #twos and let us know what you’re rocking this week and maybe we’ll show you some love the following week.

Game: Hitman Absolution on GeForce NOW

Step into the suit of the Original Assassin as he takes on his most personal contract ever. Hitman: Absolution is available to play on SHIELD - and it’s free for all GeForce NOW members to enjoy. Absolution is widely regarded as one of the best games in Square Enix’s popular Hitman series in which you play the role of a gun for hire known as Agent 47. The game is rated M for Mature by the Entertainment Software Rating Board and is not recommended for players under the age of 17.

TV show: "Westworld" on HBO NOW

"Westworld" is the remake of the 1973 Michael Crichton movie. Starring Anthony Hopkins and Ed Harris, Westworld is essentially a high-tech "amusement park" where wealthy guests, or "newcomers," can live out their western fantasies among thousands of robotic "hosts." Like another Michael Crichton, "Jurassic Park," things quickly go awry. You can stream "Westworld" on HBO NOW.

App: Redbull.tv

Known for their action sports, Redbull.tv is a great place to view everything from motorcycle racing and mountain biking to cliff diving, and surfing. The short films and documentaries in particular look amazing when streamed in 4k. Just recently, they’ve been airing the snowboard film, “The Fourth Phase,” that stars legendary snowboarder Travis Rice as he travels to some of the world’s most remote locations.

Movie: "Spectre" on Epix

Daniel Craig is back as James Bond. In this latest installation of the series, he travels between Mexico City and Rome as he discovers the existence of a new "sinister organization" known as SPECTRE. Sporting that typical James Bond look and feel, 007 is tasked with infiltrating SPECTRE as he builds toward an ultimate confrontation with his arch nemesis, played by Christoph Waltz. "Spectre" is currently streaming on Epix.
