A boatload of new Stadia games are arriving in December 2020 including Outcasters, Submerged: Hidden Depths, and a bunch of other great games.
Stadia is a game-streaming platform created by Google. The last few months have seen some exciting developments for this fledgling platform like the reveal of Outcasters, a Pac-Man Battle Royale game, and Destiny 2 going truly free-to-play on the platform. Now, some new additions are on the way that should really flesh out your Stadia library!
Let's kick things off with the official trailer for the Stadia Exclusive Submerged: Hidden Depths!
What Are the New Stadia Games Coming in December 2020?
Nine games are coming to Stadia and Stadia Pro, the vast majority of which are available today.
Chronos: Before the Ashes – Available Today
Chronos: Before the Ashes provides players with a classic RPG experience in a third-person perspective. Wield magical weapons in your quest to save your homeland, but be careful not to die — each death ages you by a year and it's pretty hard to swing a sword as a senior citizen.
El Hijo – Available Today
This stealth game has you guiding a 6-year-old boy in a quest to find his mother after their farm has been razed to the ground. You're a kid, so a stand-up fight is a bad idea — sneak around the bad guys in your quest to find your mom again!
Immortals Fenyx Rising – Available Today
Take on the role of a new god in the Olympic Pantheon, learning how to use your powers and dealing with the intricacies of the Greek Gods, the Titans, and more!
Outcasters – Available Today on Stadia Pro
This colorful multiplayer brawler has you and up to seven other players battling it out in chaotic arenas! It's not just about being a straight shooter, though — you're also able to curve your shots to land some surprising hits!
Outward – Available Today
In Outward, gamers get a cool role-playing game experience with a twist: you'll also have to survive. I don't mean that you'll have to live through a battle — survival mechanics are a key part of the colorful world before you. Carefully prepare for battle, use your wits, and you might emerge victorious!
Phogs! – Available Today
Phogs! is an adorable game about a dog with a head at either end of its body. Use your squishy new friend to solve puzzles in a world filled with adorable characters!
Submerged: Hidden Depths – Available Today on Stadia Pro
This is a super-chill exploration and adventure game set in a third-person perspective. Miku and Taku can explore a sunken city on their boat or by crawling onto collapsed buildings, ultimately aiming to solve puzzles and uncover a huge mystery!
Valkyria Chronicles 4 – Available December 8 on Stadia
This tactical RPG has you taking a team of friends to battle in the Second Europan War! Carefully position your troops to emerge victorious in battle!
Journey to the Savage Planet: Employee of the Month Edition – Stadia Release TBA
Journey to the Savage Planet will be getting all of its extra content (both free and paid) along with a 60 FPS framerate, visual enhancements, and more as exclusive Stadia content. No release date has been announced just yet.
New Free Stadia Pro Games
Additionally, there are six new free Stadia Pro games, four of which are new to the platform. These games can be claimed with a Stadia Pro membership and you'll retain access for as long as you maintain that membership.
- Everspace – New on Stadia
- Hitman 2
- Hello Neighbor: Secret Neighbor – New on Stadia
- Into the Breach – New on Stadia

There Are Stadia Free-To-Play Games, Too!
Lest we forget, there are also some neat Stadia free-to-play games, too! Aside from the earlier announcement of Destiny 2 going free-to-play on the platform — no Stadia Pro required! — the Stadia team has also revealed two other additions.
The first is Super Bomberman R Online, a Battle Royale based on Super Bomberman R supporting 64 players and the Crowd Choice feature for YouTube streamers. As with Destiny 2, this game also does not require a Stadia Pro subscription.
Additionally, Stadia gamers can hop into The Elder Scrolls Online completely for free with a Stadia Pro membership for a limited time. This Free Play Days event will last from now until December 9, 2020, at 10:00 AM EST. If you'd like to get in on all of these cool freebies (or the premium additions coming this month), you can buy Google Stadia starting at $99.99.
