Google Stadia Is Coming In November – But Not To Australia

More like Poogle

Google Stadia has had more details revealed today, including a bombshell literally everybody saw coming: It won’t be coming to Australia…yet.

Stadia is coming this November and will indeed be a subscription service, but not a mandatory one. ‘Stadia Pro’ will set you back a cool 9.99 USD a month, adding ‘regular content’ to your Stadia library. Games can also be purchased individually, but you’ll need a subscription to do it (for now). However, if you buy the game from Google you can play it on Stadia’s no-cost base tier:

The Founder’s Edition, valued at 129.99 USD, includes a limited-run version of the Stadia controller, a Chromecast Ultra allowing you to stream in 4K, three months of Stadia Pro for you and a friend, and Destiny 2: The Collection. It’ll also be the only way to play Stadia at launch until the Free tier is released ‘next year.’

You can also buy a regular controller, in one of three colours, for 69 (nice) USD. Well, you could. If it worked in Australia. Which it doesn’t.

Games-wise, Stadia will launch with the following:

  • Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey
  • Baldur’s Gate 3 (Yes, really!)
  • Borderlands 3
  • The Crew 2
  • Darksiders Genesis
  • Destiny 2
  • The Division 2
  • DOOM Eternal
  • Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2
  • The Elder Scrolls Online
  • Farming Simulator 19
  • Final Fantasy 15
  • Football Manager 2020
  • Get Packed
  • Ghost Recon Breakpoint
  • Grid
  • Gylt (exclusive)
  • Just Dance 2020
  • Metro Exodus
  • Mortal Kombat 11
  • NBA 2K
  • Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid
  • Rage 2
  • Samurai Showdown
  • Thumper
  • Tomb Raider Trilogy
  • Trials Rising
  • Wolfenstein: Youngblood

Stadia’s minimum requirements are 10mbps download and 1mbps upload; at least 35mbps is necessary to stream in 4K. It’ll launch in 14 territories, including the US, Canada, the UK, and Ireland. It’ll work on a variety of devices like home computers and laptops, tablets, Google Pixel 3 phones and any Chromecasts you happen to own. More phones are slated for adaption later, as is Australian functionality.
