Google Stadia will launch with 12 games

The launch of Google Stadia is fast-approaching. One key puzzle piece was still missing: the launch lineup. That changed today.

Don’t get too excited, though. The lineup is a mix of older games like Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition and Destiny 2 with newish games like Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Red Dead Redemption 2 sprinkled in.

Google has revealed that the following games will be available for the November 19 launch:

The Founder’s Edition is $130 upfront. It includes three months of the Stadia Pro gaming service, a Chromecast Ultra, and the Stadia Controller. The Chromecast Ultra normally retails for $70 by itself. After your three months are up, Stadia Pro is $9.99 a month.

Google recommends a minimum internet speed of 10 MBPS to run games in 720p at 60 frames per second. You’ll need a healthy internet connection of 35 MBPS to run games at 4K resolution.
