Google Stadia Will Launch In November With 31 Games For $10 Per Month

Yesterday, Google has announced Stadia pricing with some of the specs and what the service will be overall. Stadia will be offered in two models, subscription and a-la-carte (individual pricing for the games). The founder’s pack consists of Chromecast Ultra, limited-edition Night Blue Controller and a pack of (two) three-month Stadia Pro subscription.

Stadia Pro will cost $9.99 per month. This particular plan will include select games while the newer ones will be charged over and above monthly subscription fees. That being said all the games support 4k resolution, HDR, 5.1 surround sound and 60 fps. It is also worth noting that Google is offering a free version of Stadia in 2020 (resolution limited to 1080p).

At the time of debut, Stadia will include games like Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Tomb Raider trilogy and The Division 2. Stadia will be available in the following countries at launch: US, Canada, UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Finland.

To play, all you will need is a device with Google Chrome or a Chromecast Ultra. You will need a Stadia controller or any controller that can be connected to your devices. Of course, a normal old mouse and keyboard will be supported. This opens up the ability to play high-quality games to almost anyone, pretty much anywhere.
If you are interested in Stadia and want to preorder, you can preorder the Stadia Founders Edition today. The Founders Edition costs $129 and it comes with a limited edition Night Blue Stadia Controller, Chromecast Ultra, Destiny 2, and 3 months of Stadia Pro for you and a friend ($300 value). You also get first dibs on your Stadia name. The Stadia Controller will be available separately for $70 in Clearly White, Just Black, and Wasabi colors.

The service is launching in November and it will cost $9.99 per month for 4K 60fps HDR with 5.1 sound gaming, which Google will be calling Stadia Pro. If you are looking at this and concerned about the price, basic 1080p gaming will be available for free next year. On the free tier, called Stadia Base, you will have to buy games separately.

If you pay for the subscription service for Stadia Pro, you will get a set of games for free as well. Stadia Pro works similar to how the Xbox Game Pass does, at least that’s the intention. Destiny 2 is currently the only game included with the subscription. They will add more games to Stadia Pro as time goes on. Games not included in the subscription will have to be purchased separately at their retail cost.
In order for Stadia to work, you will need a minimum of 10mbps download and 1mbps upload. This 10mbps download will get you 720p gaming with surround sound. For an optimal 4K 60fps with HDR and 5.1 surround sound gaming experience, you will need around 35mbps. You will also only be able to play on Chromecast Ultra, Google Chrome browser, and the Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL, Pixel 3a, and Pixel 3a XL at launch. More mobile devices will be supported, but it will be a Pixel 3+ exclusive at first.
