Today, Google went back to YouTube to show off an impressive list of games coming to their Stadia game streaming service, which we already know is powered by Debian Linux and Vulkan.
As a reminder, Google said not to see Stadia as if it was the "Netflix of games", as it's clearly not. Stadia Base requires you to buy all your games as normal, with Stadia Pro ($9.99 monthly) giving you a trickle of free games to access on top of 4K and surround sound support.
Focusing on some newly announced games that will be coming to Stadia, along with fresh trailers for previously announced titles, today's Connect event packed quite the punch. Here's some more titles that were mentioned:
- Attack on Titan 2 Final Battle - Omega Force
- Borderlands 3 - Gearbox
- Cyberpunk 2077 - CD Projekt
- DOOM Eternal - id Software
- Darksiders Genesis - Airship Syndicate
- Destroy All Humans! (remake) - THQ Nordic
- Farming Simulator 19 Platinum Edition - Giants Software
- GRID - Codemasters
- Gods and Monsters - Ubisoft
- Kine - Gwen Frey
- Mortal Kombat 11 - NetherRealm Studios
- Orcs Must Die 3 - Robot Entertainment
- SUPERHOT + SUPERHOT: MIND CONTROL DELETE - SUPERHOT Team
- Samurai Showdown - SNK
- The Elder Scrolls Online - ZeniMax Online Studios
- Watch Dogs Legion - Ubisoft
- Windjammers 2 - DotEmu

Stadia is going to launch in November, with access being granted to around 14 countries. Currently, the only way to actually get in is to purchase the Founder's Edition with everyone else getting access next year. The Founder's Edition comes with a Chromecast Ultra, three months Stadia Plus, an exclusive Night Blue Stadia Controller and more. It's not cheap though, at around $129/£119.
How do you feel about Stadia currently, will you be giving it a go? Since it will work on Linux in any Chrome browser, I remain quite interested to try it out even if I have plenty of reservations about the service itself. Either way, it's yet another way to play AAA titles on Linux.
