Google has revealed the games that will be available on Stadia (opens in new tab) when the system goes live on November 19. The game streaming service will get rolling with 12 "carefully-chosen games" on launch day, and 14 more are expected to be added by the end of 2019.
Wondering what games will be available to play on launch day for Stadia? Here’s our day one lineup for November 19 with more titles coming by the end of 2019. For the full list and additional details, check out our blog → https://t.co/CWyqjMegYz pic.twitter.com/YzhEX1d3ouNovember 11, 2019
It's not what I'd call an overwhelmingly impressive list. Odyssey, Destiny 2, and the Tomb Raider games are all blockbusters, but they've also been around for awhile, and the same could be said for RDR2, even though it's new on PC—and, it bears mentioning, is having some issues (opens in new tab) in the transition. Google has previously confirmed more than 40 games for Stadia (opens in new tab) and while most won't even be released until sometime next year, I expected more than a dozen for the big kickoff.
The selection will fill out over the balance of the year with these, although specific dates haven't been set yet:
- Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle
- Borderlands 3
- Darksiders Genesis
- Dragonball Xenoverse 2
- Farming Simulator 19
- Final Fantasy 15
- Football Manager 2020
- Ghost Recon Breakpoint
- Metro Exodus
- NBA 2K20
- Rage 2
- Trials Rising
- Wolfenstein: Youngblood
Things will get more interesting in 2020 when new games start flowing onto Stadia, including Doom: Eternal, Watch Dogs: Legion, Gods and Monsters, and Cyberpunk 2077. Watch Dogs and Gods and Monsters aren't going to have any immediate impact on Stadia's fortunes, though, as they were delayed (opens in new tab) in October and won't be out until sometime after April 1, 2020.
Individual game purchase prices on Stadia haven't been revealed, although Google has previously said that it expects they'll be the same price (opens in new tab) as on other storefronts. Stadia Pro subscribers will receive free games as part of their $10 monthly subscriptions, beginning with Destiny 2: The Collection, and will also get a discount on purchases.
