Google are starting to boost their library of games for Stadia, with Borderlands 3 and Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 now available. Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint will also be launching, although not until tomorrow December 18th but it comes with something extra.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint seems to be the first title on Stadia to use their very interesting Stream Connect feature. This is where you team up with others, and actually see their screen on yours at the same time in a box and it supports doing that for "up to three teammates". That's one of the reasons why Stadia is interesting, the extra processing power to do special things like that (more info). However, Breakpoint reviewed pretty badly overall, so probably not the best test-case for it.

Pricing

  • Dragon Ball Xenoverse: $49.99/£39.99
  • Borderlands 3 Standard Edition for $38.99/£32.49 (35% off)
  • Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint for $30/~£25 (50% off)

Today, they also put up some discounts on other games for Stadia Pro (pretty much everyone right now) like 60% off the new GRID, which has a Stadia exclusive Endurance Mode with 40 racers.

As a reminder, Stadia works very well on Linux in our testing. With either Chromium or Chrome (and other browsers with some tinkering). You can see our first impressions here and a full Stadia on Linux livestream VOD here. Our livestreamer, Sin, will be testing Borderlands 3 on Stadia tomorrow on our Twitch Channel so be sure to follow us. We're also currently giving away one Buddy Pass.

It's going to be a lot more interesting once Stadia opens up to everyone (country access permitting) next year. Being out in the wild for anyone to load up Chromium, buy a game and play it. Once a ton of additional people get their hands on it without requiring you buy a hardware bundle—that will be Stadia's true test. Will you be trying it or are you firmly against it? Have a chat in the comments.
