Another 14 games are expected to be released to users in the coming weeks, still in 2019. The service, which was announced with more than 40 titles, is expected to receive updates in its catalog only in 2020.

These are the games that will be available at Stadia on November 19th:

  • Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
  • Destiny 2: The Collection (included with Stadia Pro subscription)
  • Gylt (exclusive to Stadia)
  • Just Dance 2020
  • Kine
  • Mortal Kombat 11
  • Red Dead Redemption 2
  • Rise of the Tomb Raider
  • Samurai Shodown
  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition
  • Thumper
  • Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition

Still in 2019, the platform should release another 14 games:

  • Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle
  • Borderlands 3
  • Darksiders: Genesis
  • Dragonball Xenoverse 2
  • Farming Simulator 19
  • Final Fantasy XV
  • Football Manager 2020
  • Ghost Recon: Breakpoint
  • Grid
  • Metro Exodus
  • NBA 2K20
  • Rage 2
  • Trials Rising
  • Wolfenstein: Youngblood

Of the 26 games that will arrive at Stadia this year, Gylt is the only exclusive on the platform and one of the few that has not yet been released. Among the other titles, 15 were released for other platforms in 2019 and 5 in 2018.

Stadia is expected to offer better performance for some games. Football Manager 2020, for example, will be released on November 19 for Windows and macOS, but Sports Interactive, which produces the game, says the Google service will offer the “fastest” way to experience the game.

In its announcement, Google did not say when it would release other games that were confirmed. These are the games that still have no date to reach the platform:

  • Baldur’s Gate 3
  • Cyberpunk 2077
  • Destroy All Humans!
  • DOOM
  • DOOM Eternal
  • Get Packed
  • Gods & Monsters
  • Marvel’s Avengers
  • Orcs Must Die! 3
  • The Crew 2
  • The Elder Scrolls Online
  • Tom Clancy’s The Division 2
  • Watch Dogs Legion
  • Windjammers 2

Google Stadia will not require downloads and may run on TVs and computers, in addition to some tablets and smartphones. In its first stage, it will be available only to those who join the Stadia Founder’s Edition, offered for US $ 130 (about R $ 540).

The version entitles you to a Stadia controller and a Chromecast Ultra, to allow you to play games with 4K HDR resolution, 60 fps and 5.1 surround sound. The package also offers the holder and a friend three months of subscription to the Stadia Pro.

Stadia Pro guarantees one free game per month, starting with Destiny 2: The Collection, and discounts on other paid games. After the three months free, the plan costs $ 9.99 (R $ 41) per month.

In 2020, Google is expected to offer Stadia Base, an unsigned alternative that does not offer free games and limits the experience to Full HD (1080p) resolution and stereo sound. There is still no forecast of when the platform will be launched in Brazil.
