Google Stadia Games List: Here's the First Wave of Video Games
Google hosted its first Stadia Connect event Thursday where it revealed how much its cloud gaming service will cost, its release month, and the first batch of games that’ll be available on the platform. One Stadia’s major challenges to overcome was to provide a tantalizing library of games that could coax die hard console gamers into subscribing to the service. And Google might have done just that.
During the pre-recorded announcement, Google showed off trailers and snippets of gameplay from selected titles — full list is below.
Google Stadia Release Date
Stadia will launch in November.
Google Stadia Price
To gain access to the full library, gamers will need to pay for a $9.99 Stadia Pro subscription, which will enable them to play all of these games at 4K resolution at 60 frames per second.

There are plenty more titles to come. Capcom, Electronic Arts, and Rockstar have agreed to host their games on Stadia — but have yet to reveal which will go up on the site. That trio of game studios own the rights to some of the hottest games in recent memory.
Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2 was one of the 2018’s most popular games and the studio also has the Grand Theft Auto series in its back pocket. Capcom released Resident Evil 2 in January which has garnered rave reviews on Steam and it also makes the Monster Hunter and Street Fighter franchises. While Electronic Arts makes all of the most notable sports games — like FIFA, Madden, and NHL — while also cranking out titles like Anthem, Star Wars Battlefront II, and Apex Legends.
It’s unclear what exactly which of these titles will come to Stadia, but having these high-profile game studios on board from the get go is a huge boost to the fledging cloud gaming platform.
Stadia’s first step towards its proposed “future of gaming” was a convincing one, now it has to prove if it can function smoothly in the real-world where wifi connectivity might be spotty. But with a library like this, you won’t see gamers passing on Stadia because of lack of titles.
