Google Stadia promises more than 120 games in 2020, including 10 exclusives

Google said today that it’s on observe to convey more than 120 games to its cloud gaming service Stadia in 2020 and is planning to supply more than 10 Stadia-exclusive games for the primary half of the 12 months. That can be a fairly huge leap from the 26 games and one unique which are at the moment obtainable, and all in a bit more than a 12 months after the service’s launch, if these projections maintain true. Previously, Google had solely explicitly confirmed 4 games for 2020, so this information was a lot wanted to let early adopters know there are a lot more games on the way in which.

Google additionally introduced different updates rolling out to Stadia over the subsequent three months, including 4K gaming on the internet, help for more Android telephones (it’s at the moment solely obtainable on Google’s Pixels), wi-fi gameplay on the internet via the Stadia controller (you at the moment need to plug in a cable), and “further [Google] Assistant functionality” when taking part in Stadia via a browser.

We’re asking Google for more particulars — and we’re significantly curious whether or not any of the brand new unique games are the sort which are solely potential with the ability of the cloud. The firm stated in October that it’s constructing out a couple of first-party studios to ultimately make {that a} actuality.

You most likely shouldn’t get too enthusiastic about 4K on the internet as a result of we’ve already seen that 4K on Stadia doesn’t essentially imply 4K. The stream is 4K, however some games like Destiny 2 are literally operating at a a lot decrease 1080p. And to even get that 4K stream, you need to pay a month-to-month payment for Stadia Pro, versus the free tier that Google has promised to launch the place you’ll solely need to pay for games. Still, Google’s “4K” tier is unquestionably greater high quality than Google’s “1080p” tier, and may make games like Destiny 2 look much less fuzzy on the internet.

Also, whereas it’s good that you just’ll quickly be capable to use a Stadia controller wirelessly whenever you’re taking part in over the net, there’s nonetheless no phrase on whenever you’ll be capable to use that controller wirelessly together with your telephone. Perhaps that’s additional away. Third-party controllers like Sony’s DualShock four and the Bluetooth-enabled variations of Microsoft’s Xbox One gamepad already work wirelessly, although.

There’s nonetheless loads that’s lacking from Stadia that was promised, even after these bulletins. Google didn’t point out that upcoming Stadia free tier in at the moment’s weblog submit in any respect, which we final heard was presupposed to open up someday in 2020. And at the moment’s weblog additionally doesn’t say something about iOS help, so it’s most likely secure to say these cloud games aren’t coming to your iPhone or iPad anytime over the subsequent three months.
