Google is all set to launch its cloud-based gaming platform – Google Stadia on 19th November. However, it looks like the tech giant is still not settled up with its launch collection. Google has given its early adopters a welcome surprise for a change: 22 games will be ready to play on day one, nearly double the number that Google said would be available as of last week.
Some of these titles weren’t slated to arrive until 2020 by Google’s last estimate, but Stadia boss Phil Harrison replied to one of my tweets with this explanation:
Here’s the revised launch list of titles the company just shared on Sunday evening, with newly added ones 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
In addition, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint, a title that was previously slated for 2020, will now arrive by the end of 2019 instead; and Doom: Eternal, Watch Dogs: Legion, Gods & Monsters, and Cyberpunk 2077 are now all now officially confirmed for Stadia released in 2020.
Google also says that Samurai Showdown will now be available free of charge to Stadia Pro subscribers at launch. Normally, Stadia requires you to buy games, with the $10/month Stadia Pro tier that allows you to play them at higher 4K resolution, with HDR support, instead of the free 1080p tier that’ll be rolling out in 2020.
