Google Adds Ten More Games to Tomorrow's Stadia Launch Lineup at the Last Minute

Google Adds Ten More Games to Tomorrow's Stadia Launch Lineup at the Last Minute

The more the merrier?

A week ago, Google revealed that the launch lineup for its game streaming platform Stadia would only consist of "12 carefully-chosen games on day one." Now, in a move that's good news in a sense for Stadia early adopters but concerning for how last minute it is, Google's promising another 10 games will be available when Stadia launches tomorrow.

Google vice president and general manager Phil Harrison announced the change via Twitter on Sunday. Here's the full list of titles that will be available on Stadia starting on November 19, as confirmed by The Verge—titles with an asterisk were part of the original 12-game lineup:

Available on Stadia Starting November 19

  • Assassin's Creed Odyssey*
  • Attack on Titan: Final Battle 2
  • Destiny 2: The Collection*
  • Farming Simulator 2019
  • Final Fantasy XV
  • Football Manager 2020
  • Grid 2019
  • Gylt*
  • Just Dance 2020*
  • Kine*
  • Metro Exodus
  • Mortal Kombat 11*
  • NBA 2K20
  • Rage 2
  • Rise of the Tomb Raider*
  • Red Dead Redemption 2*
  • Samurai Shodown*
  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition*
  • Thumper*
  • Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition*
  • Trials Rising*
  • Wolfenstein: Youngblood*

Samurai Shodown will also join Destiny 2: The Collection as a free title for all Stadia Pro subscribers (all launch bundles of Stadia come with three free months of Pro, normally $9.99/mo).

Of the 22 titles confirmed for Stadia's launch, Tequila Works' Gylt is still the only current exclusive coming to the streaming platform.

In the lead-up to Stadia's launch, Google has had to clarify that numerous features (including full wireless compatibility for its controller, iOS and non-Pixel Android support, and Family Sharing) will not make Stadia's launch window. Giving early adopters some more games to purchase on day one may help Stadia get off to a stronger start, but the 22 game list is still less than half of what Microsoft just made available for testers of its game streaming service, Project xCloud.
