Google Stadia is launching with 22 games

Google Stadia launches with twenty-two games Including Trials Rising, Final Fantasy XV and others. The launch is set for tomorrow, November 19, and Google released some of the titles coming our way. The early prognosis had some eager users in a state of concern, for the selection was narrower and had only Gylt as a console exclusive. Thankfully, with their now widened offer, the line-up looks promising, and with some of the titles it includes, it is bound to justify our trust.

If you are still not familiar with Google’s latest offering Stadia, it is the next-gen cloud gaming service that opens its proverbial doors tomorrow, on November 19, 2019. The service will be accessible to desktop computer users through the Google Chrome browser, through select Smartphones, tablets, and also through smart TV, Chromecast, and other digital media players. It will enable users to purchase any of the games offered in the library on any supported device, with just the controller and a good internet connection.

Now, all this fuss about the launch is because of the featured games and the capabilities Stadia opens. Firstly, it will be able to stream some games even up to 4K resolution and at 60fps if available. It will support high-dynamic-range and other goodies, but only if the users have a sufficiently fast and smooth internet connection. It uses Google’s data centers, which are spread across the world in numerous locations.

However, one of its selling points is the YouTube “state share” integration. This service and the YouTube are integrated in such a way that when a user would watch a certain streamer of his or her choice, they can use the “state share” feature to immediately launch the game via Stadia and with the same save state as the streamer. Google is also issuing their proprietary Wi-Fi controller for the service, but it also supports HID class USB controllers.

Keep in mind that Google Stadia is not like Netflix. Netflix enables users access to a library of offered content for a monthly fee, while Google Stadia will require you to buy the games you want to play, provided they are not free-to-play. The service itself, however, is free in its base form, but several tiers of premium access with monthly subscriptions will be available offering higher stream rates, larger resolution, and a wider pool of free games.

The service was announced to launch with only 12 titles after it already reached staggering pre-purchase numbers. This has gotten users concerned and now, Google has almost doubled its pallet. With such big titles, the list does look appealing. However, probably the most eagerly awaited game, which will come to Google Stadia, is the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077. The list of currently offered titles, in alphabetical order, that come with the launch of the service tomorrow looks like this:

  • Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
