This month saw a little bit of a lack of new games for Google Stadia, but this week saw the release of three new games, including the Saints Row remake.
On 9to5Google, we compile some of the Stadia news that we wouldn’t otherwise be able to discuss in our weekly series called Stadia Changelog. A summary of the new games that were added to Stadia during the week, a list of games that received upgrades and fixes, a list of new games that have been confirmed or are rumored to be coming to the platform, and more are included. Check out Bandwidth, our weekly examination of the remainder of the cloud gaming industry, which includes GeForce Now, Luna, and more, every Friday when you return.
GAME UPDATES ON STADA The biggest game to launch on Google Stadia in recent memory is Saints Row. Players engage in combat for control of the city in the game’s fictitious Santo Illeso.
With Neenah, Kevin, and Eli by your side as the future boss, you’ll create The Saints and engage in combat with Marshall, Los Panteros, and The Idols as you expand your empire throughout the streets of Santo Ileso. In the end, Saints Row is the tale of a fledgling firm; the difference is that The Saints are in the criminal enterprise.
Google Stadia charges $59.99 for Saints Row, the same price as other platforms. Due to the inability to link a Stadia account with a Saints Row account, some players have experienced problems accessing in-game items, but overall, players agree that the Stadia port of the game is running more smoothly than on other platforms and has fewer glitches.
It should be noted that Saints Row received largely unfavorable reviews across all platforms, including Stadia. The game’s launch-day issues, as well as criticisms of the gameplay and plot, are mostly to blame for the reception, which received a meager 3.1 out of 10 user rating ( on Metacritic ). To put it mildly, it has been an controversial launch .
This week saw the debut of two additional games on Google Stadia in addition to Saints Row.
Saints Row In 2022, Google added 47 new games to Stadia. Google added 107 new games to the Stadia library in 2021, and with less than four months left, the company promised at least 100 more in 2022, which seems improbable at this point.
COMING GAMES TO STADA The following? Several more titles are in the works.
Dead Island 2 will launch on Stadia in February 2019, which is a significant and surprising statement that was made earlier this week. It appears that this release won’t be playing the unpleasant Saints Row game of waiting until the very last minute to declare a Stadia release.
Additionally confirmed for Stadia, Jackbox Party Pack 9 is scheduled to debut this Fall.
This week, Google formally unveiled the Stadia Pro roster for September, confirming the release of the Tron-inspired title Tri6: Infinite. Additionally, Life is Strange 2 was noted as arriving to Stadia in the rating boards .
UPDATES Jackbox Party Pack 9 includes the option to kick players and QR sign-in.
This week, Jackbox Party Pack 9 for Stadia received official confirmation. It also added several eagerly anticipated innovations to the franchise. First off, Party Pack 9 will enable QR sign-in, allowing you to scan the TV with your camera rather than entering a code or URL on your phone.
The most recent installment of the series also includes new features, including as the host’s ability to remove players from an ongoing game—a function that wasn’t previously available. The tool, which will be accessible at mod.jackbox.tv, was created for Twitch and YouTube streamers and allows them to designate moderators to assist in player management.
Finally, hosts can now reconnect more quickly while a game is in progress. The game will be halted for five minutes if the host loses connection, giving them that time to reconnect.
Additionally, Stadia Enhanced adds new language support.
This week, Stadia Enhanced, a well-known Chrome plugin that enhances Stadia gameplay, updated to version 1.20.9. What’s fresh? The addon has been updated with a better Spanish translation and is now accessible in Polish. The Stadia store, database, and custom columns in the library grid have all received bug fixes.
Season 18 of Destiny 2
Season 18 of Destiny 2’s Season of Plunder was announced this week by Bungie. From August 23 until December 6, the season is in effect.
If you don’t take the powerful artifacts first, Eramis, who was rescued from her ice prison by a Dark benefactor, has enlisted the help of legendary Eliksni ancient pirate lords to help her get them.
