With the Stadia streaming service from Google launching on November 19th for those with the Founder's Edition or Premiere Edition, they're finally revealing what will be available.

It will only have 12, yes 12, titles at launch and a few of them are sequels. They are: Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Destiny 2, GYLT, Just Dance 2020, Kine, Mortal Kombat 11, Red Dead Redemption 2, Thumper, Tomb Raider + Rise + Shadow and lastly Samurai Shodown.

The only title you will get included in the Stadia Pro subscription (three months free with the Founder/Premier Edition) is Destiny 2, all others you have to pay for. If you stop paying for Stadia Pro, you lose access to any free games claimed and only keep those you've paid for normally.

Google said more will be coming before 2019 is up like Borderlands 3, Darksiders Genesis, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 and more although the dates of them are "Subject to Change". You can see the announcement about them here.

This Debian Linux and Vulkan powered streaming service certainly has an uphill battle to win over gamers and this launch line up, honestly, doesn't seem all that great. With the leaks about Steam Cloud Gaming (#1, #2), Stadia may have an even bigger fight coming.

We have a Stadia Founder's Edition pre-ordered to cover it here, although our thoughts on how Stadia runs on Linux may be quite delayed as they ship it out based on order date. Checking back on it, ours is saying to be delivered by November 27th.

I see tomb raider 2013 listed here which means a Vulkan port. I'd really love to see a vulkan beta of tomb raider like Feral did with Shadow of Mordor. Tomb raider has very poor performance on opengl.

YoRHa-2BAnd Google, in their infinite wisdom, decided to not launch Stadia in any of the regions where the latter would actually matter.

This! Totally this!!

That's my main reason why I think this will be another flop. It's not viable in third world countries (where low spec pcs would been benefit) and only avaliable in first world ones (where people can afford high end hardware, therefore, will have a better experience playing local)

The idea of streaming games it's not bad in concept and I believe it'll probably be the future of all software (for better or worse), but like VR, it's a technology "too soon to succeed"

Google could do a lot more, to make sure these titles come out for desktop Linux.

NezchanAnd not a single one I'm interested in. Which saves me the FOMO, I guess.

The price and content of the subscriptions ensures i will never feel FOMO also i bc i dont believe fomo is a thing and if it has become a thing we need to destroy social media now.

Oh, poor innocent. It was a thing before social media even existed, it just didn't have a catchy acronym.

Considering Google will nuke entire accounts just for typing too many emojis, I would be surprised if Stadia saw a massive influx of users. Now that we find out they offer a whole dozen games, I would be surprised if more than a hundred people try it out.

When it comes to Stadia I'm more interested in how it works, we know it uses Linux and Vulkan, my question is the same as back when it was announced - are the games actually being ported to Linux for it to happen? I think there's a reason why RDR2 exposes both DX12 and Vulkan.

TBH I can see the devs porting those games to Linux without releasing the desktop version for a few reasons: Denuvo not present on Linux, their clients: Origin, UPlay...etc are Windows only, and then there's support costs for an additional platform, with Stadia they can get away with all of that.

I would be interested in Blizzard games from the cloud

12 launch titles? And just one for free if you pay for their service?
Are they for real?

Who are they expecting to win over with that?

We have yet to hear about the Stadia Games exclusives... This might be an incentive, especially if their games are as huge as they claim them to be (unable to run on any known desktops), but personnally I don't really care. If these games are as big as they pretend, what will be the price tag? I've never paid more than 40$ for a game... Over this price tag, it just doesn't make it vs my priorities.
