The arrival of Google’s gaming platform, Stadia, is a matter of days away from launch. The search engine giant-turned-omniscient presence has been working on a way into the gaming industry for a while now. And, with Stadia set to arrive 19th November, interest has been increasing to see what Google will do.
Google recently revealed the 12 titles that will be available on Stadia from day one, with a further 14 to be released before the end of the year.
For anybody interested in Stadia who may have been waiting to see what’s on offer, here’s what you can expect to play from the 19th;
- Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
- Destiny 2
- Just Dance 2020
- Mortal Kombat 11
- Red Dead Redemption 2
- Rise of the Tomb Raider
- Samurai Shodown
- Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition
- Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition
As you can see, a wide range of AAA blockbusters and lower-tier level games. The entirety of Crystal Dynamics’ Tomb Raider reboot trilogy will be available, which is a nice touch for the platform.
Google has also revealed the other games releasing before 2020;
- Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle
- Borderlands 3
- Darksiders Genesis

- Farming Simulator 19

Get Ready for Stadia
For anybody not yet aware, Stadia will act as a streaming service for games. You’ll be able to stream these games through your laptop, PC, consoles, TV, or select tablets and smartphones. The catch is, however, that you need an ongoing Stadia Pro subscription to be able to play them.
You’ll be treated to three months of Pro for free if you were quick enough to pre-order the Founder’s Edition, or you’re waiting for the Premiere Edition. There is a free version of the subscription coming sometime next year. However, details on this edition are not as readily available as the Pro editions. Stadia comes with its own dedicated controller which will synch up to any aforementioned devices. By streaming a game, Google promises you won’t need any installation, download, patches, or updates. The catch there being you won’t own any of the games. The dedicated Google servers will handle in-game progression.
