Players who keep themselves informed of gaming news have known for several months that Stadia will land in some territories next November. The exact date of the commissioning of Google’s platform has not been announced. Till today.
Google took advantage of the conference it held on Tuesday to reveal the latest information about the launch of Stadia, its streaming game service via the cloud. The American giant has just announced that those who have pre-ordered and received their Stadia Founder’s Edition (which included, among other things, an exclusive Stadia Night Blue controller and a Chromecast Ultra) will start playing from November 19. According to Google, these first users will be able to play titles like Red Dead Redemption 2, Mortal Kombat 11, Kine and more.
If Stadia users will be able to buy their games individually, they will also be able to subscribe to Stadia Pro. Stadia Pro can play with a resolution of up to 4K and with 5.1 surround sound (on a compatible screen), offers discounts on the purchase of games and gives access to a catalog “free” games advertised as being regularly powered.
Stadia Base will be free
Conversely, the Stadia Base service will be free when it’s launched next year but will only allow 1080p / Stereo play and will not offer discounts or “free” games. In addition to the traditional screens, Stadia will also be usable on computer as well as on “some models of tablets and smartphones.”
People who have or will buy a Stadia Founder’s Edition or a Stadia Premiere Edition (the latter is still available for 129 euros and contains a white Stadia controller and a Chromecast Ultra) will receive (by email) a subscription of three months at Stadia Pro. At the Stadia launch, Stadia Pro subscribers will be able to play “free” at Destiny 2: The Collection.
Note that Google specifies that packages containing Stadia Founder’s Edition or Stadia Premiere Edition are shipped in chronological order of receipt of orders on its site. First come, first served.
