The fantasy that was given to us earlier this year by Google for their Stadia streaming service, some things are changing before the launch of the service this Wednesday. First of them is a Stadia updated launch list of games that went from 12 games announced last week, and was nearly doubled as of now. Not only that, but you will get two free games at launch. Crazy, right?
On Sunday night, Stadia boss Phil Harrison took to Twitter (as one does) to announce the change in their launch titles. The Stadia updated launch list is below with newly added games in bold:
- Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
- Attack on Titan: Final Battle 2
- Destiny 2: The Collection (available in Stadia Pro)
- Farming Simulator 2019
- Final Fantasy XV
- Football Manager 2020
- Grid 2019
- Just Dance 2020
- Metro Exodus
- Mortal Kombat 11
- NBA 2K20
- Rage 2
- Rise of the Tomb Raider
- Red Dead Redemption 2
- Samurai Shodown (available in Stadia Pro)
- Shadow of the Tomb Raider
- Tomb Raider 2013
- Trials Rising
- Wolfenstein: Youngblood
Also, updated is the release of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakout. That was slated for 2020, but will now drop at the end of 2019. So, happy holidays to you all. Doom: Eternal, Watch Dogs: Legion, Gods & Monsters, and Cyberpunk 2077 are now all now officially confirmed for Stadia release in 2020.
As I said earlier, there was an extra free game that will go with Destiny 2, it will be Samurai Showdown. That will be available to Stadia Pro subscribers at launch. Stadia updated launch list will pale in comparison to xCloud that already has 50 titles live on its preview service. Just remember that Stadia requires you to buy games, with the $10/month Stadia Pro tier allowing you to play them at higher 4K resolution, with HDR support, instead of the free 1080p tier that’ll be rolling out in 2020.
If you’re getting the service, please let us know if it lives up to your expectations, but we know many of those promised features won’t debut until 2020. Leave us your thoughts and experiences in the comments below.
