Google Stadia Launches on November 19 with 12 Games, Lots of Missing Features

Google announced earlier this week that its gaming streaming service, Stadia will launch on November 19 with 12 titles. The majority of the games available on day one are published and/or developed by Ubisoft, but Square Enix and Rockstar have a few titles among those releasing next week.

Before we list the game, it’s worth mentioning that the Founder’s Edition of Google Stadia will launch in United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Finland.

If you live in any of the countries listed above, you’ll be able to play the following games on Google Stadia when it launches on November 19: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Destiny 2: The Collection, Gylt, Just Dance 2020, Kine, Mortal Kombat 11, Red Dead Redemption 2, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Samurai Shodown, Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, Thumper, and Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition. Of course, you’ll have to buy the game before you can stream them via Google Stadia.

Besides the 12 games launching alongside Stadia next week, Google confirmed 14 additional titles will be coming to the streaming service by the end of 2019: Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle, Borderlands 3, Darksiders Genesis, Dragonball Xenoverse 2, Farming Simulator 19, Final Fantasy 15, Football Manager 2020, Ghost Recon Breakpoint, Grid, Metro Exodus, NBA 2K20, Rage 2, Trials Rising, and Wolfenstein Youngblood.

Unfortunately, some features will be missing when Stadia launches on November 19, Google confirmed. For example, support for Chromecast Ultra will not be available, but an update rolled out soon after launch should correct the issue.

Also, the achievements system and family sharing support will be missing the official release as well. The good news is achievements will be saved and recognized once the system launches later on.

There will be no games with Stream Connect (Stadia’s multiplayer mode) available at launch, and the first one won’t be released until 2020. The same goes for games that support State Share and Crowd Play, two multiplayer features revealed by Google earlier this year. These two features along with Stadia Buddy Pass will be released sometime in 2020. Finally, there will be no accessibility features released when Google Stadia launches next week.
