Google Stadia Connect: All the Games and Trailers Shown for the August Event

Google Stadia Connect: All the Games and Trailers Shown for the August Event

It was "all about the games," though it didn't bring many.

Google took the virtual stage today to present a lineup of games coming to its cloud-based platform, Stadia. Rather than discussing the hardware itself, Google set out to focus on what you'll actually be able to play in the cloud.

But while it was set to be "all about the games", Google brought surprisingly few of them. A number of these games have already been confirmed as coming to the platform, or are already games that are out on other platforms, or just got trailers we'd already seen.

There was remarkably little that was new in a day otherwise filled with game announcements. That said, here's the breakdown:

  • Cyberpunk 2077: CD Projekt Red's dystopian future is coming to Google's cloud system. This feels oddly appropriate, though maybe not in the way Google intended?
  • Destiny 2: Shadowkeep
  • Kine
  • Darksiders Genesis
  • Orcs Must Die! 3: The third entry in the trap-laying, orc-slaying series is a Stadia exclusive, Robot Entertainment and Google announced today. It looks like there will be even more orcs, even more traps, and what looks like another co-op set-up, similar to Orcs Must Die! 2.
  • Windjammers 2
  • Destroy All Humans
  • Mortal Kombat 11
  • Superhot: The time-bending first-person shooter will be coming to Stadia, and already made its way to Switch today, but the real news is a tease of "Mind Control Delete," a standalone bonus disk for Superhot coming soon. More Superhot!
  • Farming Simulator 19
  • Samurai Shodown
  • GRID
  • Doom Eternal
  • Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle
  • The Elder Scrolls Online: Massively multiplayer role-playing will come to the Stadia via The Elder Scrolls Online, which is set to launch with the Elsweyr content on Google's cloud service. A good get in the grand scheme of MMO's, where travelling guildmates could still log in while on the road.
  • Borderlands 3
  • Watch Dogs Legion: We got a few more looks at some of the citizens you can recruit, like affluent Sue who can get friends out of jail, or a man who can (and will) die randomly. Legion continues to look exceedingly ambitious.

Google Stadia is due out in November 2019. Expect more coverage as it comes.
