Google Stadia to launch on November 19
In the Made by Google event, Google announced that its cloud gaming service Stadia will be launching soon. The company first unveiled the service last June.
Google Stadia is the company’s new video game streaming platform. It uses the Chromecast protocol so you can stream the games over your laptop, desktop, tablet, smartphone, or TV. You just need the game and a really fast internet connection. The games can be played at up to 4K resolution at 60 fps with HDR and 5.1 surround sound. The platform has two subscriptions, Stadia Pro which is currently priced at USD 9.99 per month, and Stadia Base, which is set to launch next year. Initial games that can be played on Stadia include Red Dead Redemption 2, Mortal Kombat 11, Kine, and more.
Google will also begin shipping out the Stadia Founder’s Edition, priced at USD 129. It comes with the exclusive Night Blue Stadia Controller, Chromecast Ultra, three free months of Stadia Pro subscription, a Buddy Pass so a friend can play with you, Founder’s badge, and Stadia Name. An extra controller retails for USD 69.
Google Stadia will begin its services on November 19.
