Google Stadia

Last week, Google announced that its Stadia streaming service would launch tomorrow with just 12 old games -- all but one of which you've already played. It was a rather dire line-up, but overnight the company has gone and nearly doubled the number of titles you'll be able to purchase on launch day.

Now made up of 22 games, you can look forward to streaming the likes of Final Fantasy XV, Metro: Exodus, Trials Rising, and Wolfenstein Youngblood all on day one. With the new additions highlighted, the full list now consists of:

  1. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
  2. Attack on Titan: Final Battle 2
  3. Destiny 2: The Collection (available in Stadia Pro)
  4. Farming Simulator 2019
  5. Final Fantasy XV
  6. Football Manager 2020
  7. Grid 2019
  8. Gylt
  9. Just Dance 2020
  10. Kine
  11. Metro Exodus
  12. Mortal Kombat 11
  13. NBA 2K20
  14. Rage 2
  15. Rise of the Tomb Raider
  16. Red Dead Redemption 2
  17. Samurai Shodown (available in Stadia Pro)
  18. Shadow of the Tomb Raider
  19. Thumper
  20. Tomb Raider 2013
  21. Trials Rising
  22. Wolfenstein: Youngblood

A subscription to Stadia Pro will now even net users a copy of Samurai Shodown, how lovely is that!? In all seriousness, this is quite obviously an improvement for anyone looking to dive straight into video game streaming before the year is out. Although, it still can't compare to the list of titles available on PlayStation Now, can it?

Some of these games were slated to arrive on Stadia before 2020, so it looks like a handful have been pushed forward to give users more choice on launch day. Could that create a bit of a drought in releases further down the line? We'll see.
