Speaking ahead of this week’s E3 show in L.A, Google Stadia’s Phil Harrison revealed the release date and pricing of the new game streaming service.
The mystery surrounding Google Stadia has finally been uplifted.
Speaking at their own event prior to this week’s E3 2019, Stadia’s executive Phil Harrison revealed pricing and release dates.
Google Stadia is set to launch in November 2019 with 30 games made available at launch with 3 specific packages available to gamers.
Mr. Harrison has also stated that the platform will be coming with a free package which will be made available in 2020.
Upon launch in November, Stadia Pro will be made available for $9.99 per month.
This relatively low price will provide access to the following:
- 4K at 60 Frame Per Second Gaming
- 5.1 Surround Sound
- Regular Free Games
- Discounts on Full Purchase Games
As mentioned earlier this week, Destiny 2: The Collection will also be available at launch for Stadia Pro subscribers.
Destiny 2: The Collection is the full Destiny 2 game with all previously released expansions and DLC.
Stadia Base, the free version of Stadia coming in 2020 will include the following:
- 1080p at 60 Frames Per Second Gaming
- Stereo Sound
However there will be no regular free games or discounts on full purchase games with the free option.
Another thing worth mentioning is that Stadia has plans to provide access to games via a publisher’s own channel.
For example, Ubisoft may have a Stadia channel through which you can access Ubisoft titles such as Assassin’s Creed or Watchdogs, however these will of course charge extra.
Phil Harrison has also stated that games will be cheaper to purchase through Stadia than on other platforms.
Although, since Sony, Microsoft and indeed all publishers with an online store said the same thing, I would take this with a large grain of salt.
Google Stadia is set to launch in November this year.
