Metro Exodus is now live on Steam and Deep Silver say it's coming to Linux

Avehicle7887[...]Multiplayer games are still largely a no go due to anti cheat and other popular issues such as Windows Media Foundation are also present. [...]

I'd say this is a better time than ever to support Linux natively.

There aren't any hackers in Red Dead Redemption 2 on Stadia. Windows cannot say the same. There are obvious technical reasons for this but AAA multiplayer on Linux is there natively from Developers that put in the work.

Darksiders Genesis plays cut scenes just fine on Stadia. Proton cannot without media framework fixes. A Linux native solution exists. Developer-imposed limitation in the Windows build.

Cross play remains the biggest hurdle in this space.

mirvStadia doesn't appear to have technical problems with the games. Last I checked. Other issues, yes, but not technical problems with the games.

This is correct. By and large game performance on Stadia is great between 1080p/4K, especially for a lot of companies' first Linux/Vulkan releases. Fully up to date Borderlands 3, Red Dead Redemption 2, Darksiders Genesis, Metro Exodus, NBA 2K20, etc. etc. prove to no surprise that native Linux builds can work great when the developers put in the work. It's up to the publishers/developers to care enough to release the Native Linux binary on steam, as is the case with Metro. I'd love to benchmark Red Dead Redemption 2 Linux vs Windows Vulkan on my gaming hardware but until I'm able to do so I'll continue to enjoy the excellent Stadia version.

“Own” it on Stadia Pro, BUYING it on Steam. This is how you do it! Thank you 4A.

One of my all time favourites. The only thing it's missing is ships. I'd love to have a ship attacking a fort on an island for example.

Sorry, weird spasm there.

Google pulls in Typhoon Studios to work on games for Stadia

QuoteMost recently, our livestreamer Sin took Borderlands 3 on Stadia for a spin and she seemed quite impressed. Even with it missing patches, the ability to load up Chromium on Linux and just play such big games so easily certainly makes things interesting.

I didn't watch the stream but I read somewhere that for now the game is locked at 30FPS, is that right?


Creator of WebRTC now working on Google Stadia, Darksiders Genesis out plus more Stadia news

Darksiders is one of my all time favorite franchises. I played the original on Xbox 360 and now own all of the other games...on steam. And they all run on Linux via proton. Currently this game has a platinum rating on protondb so I'll likely get this one on steam too, I just wish they'd release the Linux/vulkan binary. Native > Proton, especially with how well DS:G runs on stadia. I did end up purchasing it to try it on Stadia but will likely refund.

Some early first impressions of Google Stadia played on Linux

Stadia Pro's 4K stream is 4k60. It's up to the game developers to make their games run well enough on Stadia at 4k.

*Cue the influx of second hand vives to ebay.* I'll likely upgrade myself too, this game looks like a game I would invest time into in VR.

The index controllers were already a game changer for me in terms of the level of immersion so I cannot wait to experience this with the full kit.

Google have now expanded the launch titles for Stadia up to 22

BotonoskiReally seems like they're rushing this out the door as quickly as possible when they're adding to their launch roster so soon before release. Really ought to make sure things are set in stone before you announce them in my opinion.

Google stated they're only announcing games that have been 100% cleared for release by the developers. These additional 10 games weren't ready during the initial announcement, hence a second one.

This really isn't that surprising. Stadia is presented as a rolling platform with updates trickling out over time as they're ready.

drlambI hear 2-3-1 is all the rage these days but I wouldn't want to get mixed up in all that.

A bot could sure try to unravel my logic puzzle but it seems two humanoids (Can't assume these days ) got it.

After all I'm just showing my appreciation to Feral. I'm sure there will be other creative give-aways from me in the future.
