Includes Best Assassin's Creed Game

The first batch of games that will be coming to Google Stadia has been announced. Additionally, Google has also revealed all the games that will be launching on the platform in 2019.

So what can you play when the service launches on November 19th? Well here's the day one line-up:

 
  • Assassin's Creed Odyssey
  • Destiny 2: The Collection
  • GYLT
  • Just Dance 2020
  • Kine
  • Mortal Kombat 11
  • Red Dead Redemption II
  • Thumper
  • Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition
  • Rise of the Tomb Raider
  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition
  • Samurai Shodown

Most of the games here are either major AAA releases or better-known indie games. The only real unknown is GYLT, the first Google Stadia exclusive. The game is a horror game by Rime and Deadlight creators Tequila Works. You play as a young girl exploring a twisted school environment, having to avoid monsters that mostly seem to be interested in killing her. While the game is stealth heavy, she is able to use her flashlight to defend herself. It'll be interesting to see how the service's first exclusive manages to work out for it.

What about after launch? Google has promised a list of games that will be hitting before 2019 ends. You can expect to play the following if you're up to it:

 
  • Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle
  • Borderlands 3
  • Darksiders Genesis
  • Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2
  • Farming Simulator 19
  • Final Fantasy XV
  • Football Manager 2020
  • Ghost Recon Breakpoint
  • GRID
  • Metro Exodus
  • NBA 2K20
  • Rage 2
  • Trials Rising
  • Wolfenstein: Youngblood

Google Stadia will be available on November 19th, 2019 for the price of $9.99 a month for the Pro subscription. The premier edition, which includes a Chromecast, a Stadia Controller, and 3 months of the subscription, will cost $129. The free version will launch next year.
