Google announced a pile of games for Stadia, some of them being exclusive like the Orcs Must Die 3 along with some interesting features for existing titles.
Google Stadia is getting Elder Scrolls Online MMO, which will feature crossplay and crossprogression with the PC and Mac versions so it's going to be available to players both on their comfy setups at home as well as on the move while playing through Stadia.
While being able to access your characters and further progress with them remotely is interesting, it is not the only feature for the Stadia version of the game since players will not need to pay for two subscriptions simultaneously or buy the game again. It is enough to have Stadia Pro active and ESO will be available.
Super Bomberman R Online, the battle royale of the popular franchise will be a timed exclusive for Stadia. The game will feature up to 64 player battles and one of the best features is that you can play with your favourite streamers at the touch of a button. Clicking a provided link on a Stream will send you into the lobby, without even having to download the game.
Something similar is coming to PUBG as watching a video and clicking the embedded link will launch the game for the user. No download will be needed here either and Season 8 is coming to Stadia on July 30, 2020.
Several other high profile games were confirmed for Stadia along with their release dates:
- Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is coming during autumn 2020
- Outriders is coming to the platform in 2021
- Hitman and Hitman 2 coming in September 2020, with the first one being available with Stadia Pro
- Hitman 3 is coming in January 2021
The presentation concluded with the announcement of Google's first-party game that will be exclusive to Stadia - Orcs Must Die 3. Fans of the series will likely be most pleasantly surprised that the game is already available on the platform although they might not like the exclusivity part.
