Google Stadia Launch Lineup Expands

A tweet from Geoff Keighley on Twitter announces that Google Stadia will support almost double the number of games as expected when it launches tomorrow (thanks Kotaku via Neutronbeam). Last week they revealed a launch lineup that included 12 games, which drew some criticism for seeming skimpy. This also inspired discussion of fears that this would all be lost like tears in the rain if Google ends up killing the service, as they've developed a reputation for ruthlessness with underperforming projects. The tweet lists 10 additional games, bringing the number of titles that can be purchased and played through this cloud service to 22:

  1. Stadia's Day One Titles include:
  2. Assassin's Creed Odyssey
  3. Attack on Titan: Final Battle 2
  4. Destiny 2: The Collection (available in Stadia Pro)
  5. Farming Simulator 2019
  6. Football Manager 2020
  7. Grid 2019
  8. Gylt
  9. Just Dance 2020
  10. Kine
  11. Metro Exodus
  12. Mortal Kombat 11
  13. NBA 2K20
  14. Rage 2
  15. Rise of the Tomb Raider
  16. Red Dead Redemption 2
  17. Samurai Shodown (available in Stadia Pro)
  18. Shadow of the Tomb Raider
  19. Thumper
  20. Tomb Raider 2013
  21. Trials Rising
  22. Wolfenstein: Youngblood

Strictly for the very casual gamer. AAA gamer need not apply. Google will cancel it within a couple years.

Seems foolish to buy games to be hosted by Google since they aren't known to stand by their services for the long run.

If you could swallow that pill, what kind of games would you want to play with added latency? The only thing I would consider would be some strategy games, maybe.

So... no reason to give much consideration to any of this.

I'd need a PC to run Stadia on anyway. Might as well save the money I'd spend with Stadia to put in a PC upgrade once every 3 to 4 years.

The real question is:

Are any of you guys trying this?

I'm gonna give it a shot to test the waters and see how it does. My primary interest is just the ability to play across any device and switch between them quickly as needed, and the other benefits that come along with that (no downloads, patching, etc)


i had the beta and it worked fine but check out the microsoft offering instead, will be much better than this in all areas.

I will not. I don't expect many here to. It isn't a product made for us (which many here seem to miss.)

Tried the beta and it was impressive - for what it is - but not paying money impressive by any stretch. Google are dabblers. This'll be gone in a year or so.

2. Based on Google's track record, I don't trust them to stick with it if they deem it a failure.

That's one of my primary concerns with investing too much time and $ into the service.

Nope. Staying far away from this.

1. Don't need or like cloud-streaming gaming.
2. Based on Google's track record, I don't trust them to stick with it if they deem it a failure.

How long is Google running Stadia? 1 or 2 years you guys think?

They can barely seem to get this bizarre monster to shamble out of the gate, let alone running it for awhile. Cut features, performance reductions and just a mess in general.

What about multiplayer, btw?
Do they do "crossplay" with normal PC players? Or do they use their own pool of latency gimped, AI script infested (some might call their "negative latency" scripts cheating) early adopters?

Currently yes, you need a pro subscription to access stadia which you get 3months of free if you by the founders pack. Next year when Stadia leaves 'founders' launch there won't be a required subscription to play.

This thing is like Fallout 76 but start from the other end...

Fallout 76: You buy the game at full price, then spend $$ for the stupid subscription

Google Stadia: You spend $$ for the stupid subscription first, then you buy those games at FULL PRICE!!!

Stadia includes some games (currently just Destiny 2), and some need to be purchased. They plan to increase what's included, but...

Meanwhile, I'm dying for Orcs Must Die 3, which is only happening because of Stadia. Can't imagine how their dev's management has made decisions around that game. The first two were critical darlings that sold well, the third was a free to play multiplayer piece of garbage no one wanted, and when it failed they wanted to kill the series rather than go back to what works.
