While the port of The Elder Scrolls Online was something of a disappointment on Stadia, there's more coming to look forward to if you're a fan of the game streaming service.

Today, Google announce that on July 1 not only will Stadia Pro subscribers be getting the upcoming (and fun looking!) Crayta with their sub but another 3 games will also be available on Stadia Pro including:

  • Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom
  • SteamWorld Dig
  • West of Loathing

Keeping in mind that The Elder Scrolls Online will only remain free to claim until July 16, when anyone who hasn't claimed it by then would need to buy it as normal on Stadia here's the list of games you can claim and play instantly with Stadia Pro from July 1:

  1. Crayta
  2. Destiny 2: The Collection
  3. Get Packed
  4. GRID (2019)
  5. Gylt
  6. Little Nightmares
  7. Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom
  8. Panzer Dragoon: Remake
  9. PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS
  10. Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid
  11. Serious Sam Collection
  12. Spitlings
  13. Stacks on Stacks (on Stacks)
  14. SteamWorld Dig
  15. SteamWorld Dig 2
  16. SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech
  17. Steamworld Heist
  18. SUPERHOT
  19. The Elder Scrolls Online
  20. The Turing Test
  21. West of Loathing
  22. Zombie Army 4

That is quite a list but will it be enough to keep people paying for Stadia Pro? Crayta, the upcoming 'First on Stadia' title might perhaps be the one to do it, as long as there's enough players which has been Stadia's problem on games like Destiny 2.

Additionally, Wave Break releases today as a new 'First on Stadia' title with other platforms to come in the following months. Wave Break is an arcade-style 'skateboating' game involving plenty of action:

On top of that both previous Metro games (Metro 2033 Redux and Metro: Last Light Redux) will also arrive on Stadia today.

No word yet on expanding into more countries, when we know we will let you know.

All games can be purchased on Stadia if you don't have a Pro subscription which you get 1 month free when you sign up. They've announced another bunch of sales including discounts on Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Borderlands 3, Metro Exodus, The Crew 2 and more.

Quoting: tuubiUnity does, yes.

Does it use Vulkan now by default for all Linux games? I've seen recent Unity games still using OpenGL.

Probably not, but it's available. You can forcibly enable the Vulkan backend in recent Unity OpenGL games (with -force-vulkan) but there's no guarantee it'll run any better or even work properly.

Is it just me, or does it seem like all of the stadia exclusives/firsts are targeted toward children audiences? I wonder if that's intended.

Stadia needs to give some games to test it... For now, i don't want to pay a second time for a game that i already have.

Agreed. There needs to be a way to add titles for little to no fees across platforms. I already deal with this on different hardware platforms - PC, PS4, and Switch. The main negative for me now is that Stadia requires a subscription plus a retail fee and possibly a cash shop on top of that. And like you point out this is sometimes for games I already "own". This is also what puts me off from buying an Xbox. It feels like too many walled gardens with toll roads.

Not sure if you're unaware but Stadia is free and does not require a subscription. Stadia Pro is only needed if you wish to Stream at 4K, have access to the "free" pro games, or receive special discounts.

If you were to buy a game on stadia, say Doom: Eternal, you could then stream the game for free at 1080P as long as you wished. No other cloud gaming provider works like this.

Yes, I muddled those two together somewhat. The problem with Stadia is the same as Prime video for me. The premium content struggles to justify the subscription fee, meanwhile I still need to purchase titles to enjoy the service how I like. I dropped Prime video for the same reason while keeping Hulu, Boomerang, Disney, HBO, and Netflix. I think Google could do it better. Sony does it better, from my point of view, with PSNow (~$45/year for 400+ titles) combined with a store. Google could do this. They have the resources. I feel like they're not really going all in on it, but more testing the waters and that puts me off.
