Google Stadia arrival date

Google Stadia is a game streaming platform. This means that the games available in the library are launched on Google servers. The production does not need to be downloaded and installed. Ultimately it will be possible to display them on almost every device that has a screen. This is a revolutionary solution, because you do not need to physically have at home the equipment on which you want to run the game. No console or properly equipped PC is required. All you need is internet. In addition, a dedicated controller and a special adapter are initially required. Their cost, however, is still lower than the entire device that is able to support the game. Over time, Google will not require anything more than a browser. This can complete the replacement of new consoles with newer or continuous computer upgrades to support the latest games .

Google Stadia presented with all details

We have known about the service for a long time, but only now Google has revealed all the details. First of all, the Google stadia will arrive on November 19, but only in 14 countries. However, Google announces that in 2020 Stadia will be available in other countries.

The starter kit will cost $ 129. As part of it, we’ll receive a controller dedicated to the service, the Chromecast Ultra snap-in, Destiny 2 game and a three-month Stadia Pro subscription. After this period, we will pay $ 9.99 per month for the subscription. This will allow us to launch available productions in 4K and 60 frames per second. Google has also prepared a free subscription version, where games will go in 1080p and 60 frames per second. However, it will be available only from 2020.

Importantly, this is only a subscription for access to the site. You will have to pay for the games separately. For starters, Google has prepared 40 productions, some of which will be available immediately, and the rest (like Cyberpunk 2077 or Baldur’s Gate III) will be added on the day of their release.

Here’s the Full list of games:

    • Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
    • Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle
    • Baldur’s Gate 3
    • Borderlands 3
    • Cyberpunk 2077
    • Darksiders Genesis
    • Destiny 2: The Collection
    • Destroy All Humans!
    • DOOM
    • DOOM Eternal
    • Farming Simulator 19
    • Football Manager 2020
    • Get Packed
    • Ghost Recon Breakpoint
    • Gods & Monsters
    • GRID
    • GYLT
    • Just Dance 2020
    • Kine
    • Marvel’s Avengers
    • Metro Exodus
    • Mortal Kombat 11
    • NBA 2K20
    • Orcs Must Die! 3
    • Rage 2
    • Red Dead Redemption 2
    • Rise of the Tomb Raider
    • Shadow of the Tomb Raider
    • The Crew 2
    • The Elder Scrolls Online
    • Thumper
    • Tom Clancy’s The Division 2
    • Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition
    • Trials Rising
    • Watch Dogs Legion
    • Windjammers 2
    • Wolfenstein: Youngblood

Google also presented hardware requirements. The most important is of course the speed of the internet connection that is needed to operate the games:

  • 10 Mbps for 720p and 60 frames per second
  • 20 Mbps for 1080p and 60 frames per second
  • 35 Mbps for 4k, 60 frames per second and HDR

Initially, it can’t do without Google branded devices. That’s why Chromecast Ultra is needed for televisions. The platform will also launch on Pixel 2, Pixel 3, Pixel 3a and Pixel 4 smartphones and on tablets with ChromeOS. This includes: Pixel State, Acer Chromebook Tab 10 and HP Chromebook X2.

However, this is only a transitional stage, since the service will be available on the Chrome browser as from 2020. The situation is similar with the controller, which will provide wireless operation only with the Chromecast Ultra adapter, and other devices will need to be connected using a USB-C cable. Over time, however, Google will allow the use of any Bluetooth enabled controller. So Stadia will also work with pads for PlayStation and Xbox .
