Google Stadia Launch Lineup Is Horrendous and Shows a Lack of Interest
Google has shared its launch day lineup for the streaming device, Google Stadia. There are 12 games that will be playable through the service at launch.
When it comes to streaming services, the current big three are Microsoft with Project xCloud, Sony with PlayStation Now, and now Google is also joining them with their own streaming platform, Google Stadia.
Google had announced that Stadia will launch in limited regions on November 19, 2019. The first edition of the console won’t offer any free subscription choice and instead, the Founder or Premium Edition will come with three months of Stadia Pro that will allow its users to play Destiny 2. After the three months are up, you have to pay an additional $10 per month to access the service.
Google is planning to release a base or free version of Stadia that should be available in a lot more regions around the world. This version is still without a release date so if you want to get into the action with Google’s game streaming service this year, the choice is to get the expensive Founder’s Edition and pay a subscription and additional game price on top of it.
Here are the 12 games that will be available to purchase and play on Google’s streaming service when it launches on November 19.
- Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
- Destiny 2: The Collection (Available free as part of Stadia Pro subscription)
- Just Dance 2020
- Mortal Kombat 11
- Red Dead Redemption 2
- Rise of the Tomb Raider
