Google Stadia has added another 10 games to its lineup just moments prior to the cloud gaming service’s launch on November 19, 2019. Those users that manage to slide their pre-orders in early will be able to purchase titles such as Metro Exodus, Rage 2, Football Manager 2020, and Wolfenstein: Youngblood come launch day – and play Samurai Shodown for free.
Google has expanded its initial launch lineup from 12 games to 22 following its most recent announcement. The new titles are Attack on Titan: Final Battle 2, Farming Simulator 2019, Final Fantasy XV, Football Manager 2020, GRID, Metro Exodus, NBA 2K20, Rage 2, Trials Rising, and Wolfenstein: Youngblood.
Also announced by the search engine goliath was a new game to its Stadia Pro subscription, Samurai Shodown. This game was already announced for the service but has since been confirmed for all Stadia Pro users – which will be everyone with access to the service within the first three months, at least. Pro users will also gain free access to Destiny 2: The Collection, too.
The launch lineup increase was announced by Phil Harrison, VP and GM of Stadia at Google, and follows some concerns from the community regarding the limited Stadia Store lineup first announced last week.
