Google Stadia Reveals 16 New Games, Including Exclusives (VIDEO)
Google has promised quite the year for its big game streaming service Stadia, with a number of exciting features and emerging titles expected to happen throughout the remainder of 2020. While the extent of these arrivals has largely been announced in small doses, Google Stadia has now unveiled a large assortment of upcoming titles – including several exclusives – readying for a release on the platform.
As part of the latest Stadia Connect presentation, a total of 16 games were revealed to be coming to the Google streaming service, including the likes of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, IO Interactive’s Hitman trilogy, and the upcoming sci-fi shooter Outriders. Survival title Dead by Daylight is also set to ascend to the cloud as well, which launches with cross-play and cross-progression support as well as two Stadia-only modes called “Crowd Play” and “Crowd Choice.” Both are centered around live streaming, with Crowd Choice allowing fans to vote to influence the game and Crowd Play allowing a specific community to participate in a playable trial.
In addition to the numerous games being ported to Google Stadia, several are also being shown off as exclusive to the streamable platform. Colorful free-for-all shooter Outcasters was unveiled as the next game to tout the “Only On Stadia” motto, arriving sometime in Fall 2020. Tower-defense threequel Orcs Must Die! 3 was also confirmed to be limited-time exclusive to the Google service, available free for Stadia Pro subscribers today. In addition, three untitled games from several studios were also confirmed to be in the works, such as Harmonix (Rock Band), Uppercut Games (City of Brass), as well as Supermassive Games (Until Dawn).
