Google Stadia launches backup Premiere Edition as Founders pre-order sells out

Google has announced the Stadia Premiere Edition, a slightly pared down pre-order bundle set to replace the Founders Edition in countries where it’s sold out. Announced on Twitter, the Stadia Premiere Edition comes with the “Clearly White” Stadia Controller, a Google Chromecast Ultra, access to Destiny 2, and a three-month access code to Stadia Pro.

The Founders Edition has reportedly sold out in some EU countries (but not the UK just yet, you can still order one here), and Google is offering the Premiere Edition as an alternative to those of you still hoping to get in on its maiden streaming service launching this November.

For comparison, the Founders Edition comes with the limited edition Night Blue Stadia Controller, a Chromecast Ultra, three months of Stadia Pro, another three months for a friend, access to Destiny 2, a Founder’s “badge”, and the ability to choose a Stadia name before anyone else – so you’re not missing out a whole lot by opting for the slightly pared back Premiere package.

The Premiere Edition is currently listed for €129, while the Founders Edition is still available in the US for $129 and the UK for £119.

Stadia will launch in 14 countries in November, including the US, UK, and “most of” Europe. It will be available first to those with Stadia Pro subscriptions, but early next year there will be a free 1080p tier available for those of you hoping to give streaming a try before you buy.

The games confirmed for Stadia so far include: Red Dead Redemption 2, Cyberpunk 2077, Destiny 2, SUPERHOT, Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, Doom, Doom Eternal, Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, Wolfenstein Youngblood, Borderlands 3, and Metro Exodus.
