Stadia adds Cyberpunk 2077, Darksiders Genesis, Uplay+ and more to it’s line up

 

Last night’s Stadia Connect broadcast revealed some new games for the platform including Cyberpunk 2077, Kine, Darksiders Genesis, Orcs Must Die 3 (Stadia exclusive), Windjammers 2, Destroy All Human, Superhot: Mind Control, Farming Simulator 19 Platinum Edition, Samurai Showdown, and GRID.

Previously announced games such as Mortal Kombat II, Destiny 2: Shadowkeep, and Watch Dogs 3 are also shown in the video.

It has also been revealed that Ubisoft’s subscription service Uplay+ will come to Stadia in 2020, bringing with it access to over 100 games. The service is set to launch on PC next month and will cost $14.99, so expect the Stadia pricing to be similar.

In other Stadia news Andrey Doronichev, Google Stadia’s Director of Products Andrey Doronichev, responded to a question during an AMA on Reddit and said “Oh yes, achievements…as a lifelong gamer and a pathological overachiever, I love achievements! Of course we’ll have something similar to other platforms,” but added “however, it will not be there immediately at launch. Will come a bit later.”

The Stadia controller will also support Bluetooth audio but – you guessed it – not at launch.

Doronichev explained how the company views their new service. “To be clear, Stadia Pro is not “Netflix for Games” like some people have mentioned, a closer comparison would be like Xbox Live Gold or Playstation Plus. The Pro subscribers get 4K/HDR streaming, 5.1 sound, exclusive discounts and access to some free games. Roughly one free game per month give or take. Starting with Destiny 2 (yay!).”

Further clarification was provided by StadiaOfficial when asked what happened if you stopped subscribing and restarted at a later date: “You will regain access to those Pro games you claimed in the past while you were a subscriber. But not the ones that were offered to Pro subscribers while you were unsubscribed.”

Stadia will be it own ecosystem and will not have cross play with other formats, including PC, unless specifically built in.
