After seven months since its announcement and an insistence on a 2019 release, Google’s upcoming videogame streaming service Stadia is finally releasing, and it’s coming soon. News comes in the way of an announcement from official Stadia sources in a convenient two minute video that gives viewers a rundown of how the service works, along with its features.
To get access to Google Stadia at launch, consumers will have to purchase the Founder’s Edition. This £119/$129 package includes a controller, Chromecast Ultra which allows buyers to play Stadia on their TV in upto a 4K resolution, three-months of a Stadia subscription along with a Buddy Pass which also gives a friend access to three-months, and access to games across all supported devices in early access.
Players can also pick up the Stadia Premiere Edition, which is essentially the same package only it includes a White controller as opposed to the Night Blue controller included in the Founder’s Edition. Both editions of Stadia come included with Destiny 2: The Collection, however additional titles will have to be purchased separately.
Google Stadia is set to release on 19th November at 9am PST/5pm BST/6pm CET.
