Stadia is almost here, but some were disappointed after Google announced last week that only 12 titles would be available at launch.
To attract more people to the platform, a fresh addition of 10 titles have been announced, even if most of them are quite familiar. The initial selection was criticized by many as being a bit poor, especially if we take into account the fact that rival platform GeForce Now offers access to more than 400 titles, and it is still in the closed beta stage.
Here is the complete list of titles that will be available on November 2019:
- Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
- Attack on Titan: Final Battle 2
- Destiny 2: The Collection (available with Stadia Pro)
- Farming Simulator 2019
- Final Fantasy XV
- Football Manager 2020
- Grid 2019
- Just Dance 2020
- Metro Exodus
- Mortal Kombat 11
- NBA 2K20
- Rage 2
- Red Dead Redemption 2
- Rise of the Tomb Raider
- Samurai Shodown (available in Stadia Pro)
- Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition
- Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition
- Trials Rising
- Wolfenstein: Youngblood
Among the newcomers, we can count Farming Simulator 2019, Final Fantasy XV, Grid 2019, Metro Exodus NBA 2K20. While these aren’t exactly new releases they are quite popular among many gamers and may prove to be quite enticing for people who want to play them with the help of cloud gaming.
Stadia will be available from November 19 for those who purchased the Founder or Premiere edition. A free tier will be offered in 2020. While the initial offer seems to be quite attractive, a large number of people were disappointed by the fact that Google plans to offer Stadia as both a service and a storefront. And games bought on Stadia cannot be played without using the service.
